Tagline

This woman turned an intolerant slur into an opportunity. 83 minutes of gay rights awareness.

Erin Davies turns a slur written on her VW beetle into awareness of gay rights.

Synopsis

Turning a slur sprayed on her VW Beetle from scarlet letters into a badge of honor, Sage College grad student Erin Davies hit the road in her rechristened "fagbug" to raise awareness of gay rights and to speak where others had been silenced. The resulting documentary captures a 58-day cross-continental trip in which Davies interviews 500 people, discovers the virulence of hate crimes and records reactions to her queerly customized ride.

"99% of hate came from the LGBT community..." eh, not sure about some such figures but great story nevertheless

A moving documentary with candid interviews and painful confrontations. Highly recommended, no matter where you fall on the spectrum of gay rights.
