The Lexington School for the Deaf Drama Club will present The Laramie Project on Friday, December 16, and Saturday, December 17, 2016. In the wake of hatred and violence, the Lexington community wants to spread love and celebrate diversity and hope. The Laramie Project, which depicts the events following the vicious beating of Matthew Shepard because he was gay, is a show about hope in the wake of hate. Join us as we stand up to bigotry with a powerful production sure to have you thinking and talking about the world we live in. We look forward to having you there with us! #HopeStopsHate
