See “Fagbug” at UHP Movie Night [Dinner and a Movie]

28 Sep

Join us Thursday, October 6th 7:30pm in the UHP Club room for movie night!  We bring the movie, and the dinner.  You just show up.  This is open to everyone at GW, so bring a friend!

Fagbug is a Volkswagen Beetle owned by Erin Davies of Albany vandalized on the 11th Annual National Day of Silence in 2007.  Because it sported a rainbow sticker, Erin’s car was spray painted with the words “fag” and “u r gay” placed on the driver’s side window and hood of her car. Despite initial shock and embarrassment, Erin decided to embrace what happened by leaving the graffiti on her car and, in response, put her studies on hold to embark upon a video-documented 55,000 mile journey across the United States, during which she interviewed 500 people and spoke out against hate crimes.  This 2009 documentary is a touching, sometimes upsetting, and surprisingly funny tour of America’s changing attitudes toward LGBT citizens.
