Netflix has released the official trailer for the forthcoming documentary, “The Dads,” 

About The Documentary

In this gentle meditation on fatherhood, brotherhood, and manhood, five fathers of trans children join Dennis Shepard – the father of slain gay college student Matthew Shepard – for a weekend fishing trip in rural Oklahoma.

Matthew was a student at the University of Wyoming who was beaten, tortured, and left to die near Laramie on the night of October 6, 1998.

Sadly, Matthew Shepard died six days later from the severe head injuries he received during the attack.  

As the men cast their lines into the river, they find common ground across racial, geographical, and generational lines: their unconditional love for their children.

Release Date

November 17, 2023, only on Netflix
