Celebrities Remember Matthew Shepard – The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later

October 26th, 2009 // 1 Comment

The murder of Matthew Shepard in 1998 opened a national discussion about homophobia and hate crimes, inspiring the Tectonic Theater Project to travel to Laramie to interview the town’s inhabitants and put together the play, The Laramie Project.

Ten years later, celebrities like Zachary Quinto, Lisa Edelstein, Julie Benz and James Cromwell (among others), showed up to the Hollywood United Methodist Church in Hollywood, California for a reading of The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later.

In keeping with the spirit of the event, attendees kept their looks low-key and eschewed walking an actual red carpet.
