"Fagbug" Documentary @2009 (83 minutes)
On the 11th Annual National Day of Silence, Erin Davies was victim to a hate crime in Albany, New York. Because of sporting a rainbow sticker on her VW Beetle, Erin's car was vandalized, left 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. She took her car, now known worldwide as the "fagbug," on a 58-day trip around the US and Canada. Along the way, Erin discovered other, more serious hate crimes, had people attempt to remove the graffiti, and experimented with having a male drive her car. After driving the fagbug for 1 year, Erin decided to give her car a makeover. Watch the trailer, view the film on Netflix or Hulu. To purchase the DVD, click here.

Reactions to "Fagbug Nation"
"I just watched your film and am amazed by your courage. I'm a heterosexual male and have used ignorant slurs in the past. I would like to apologize to you and everyone else and will make sure I teach my children to be more understanding than I have been."

"Thank you. You inspired me and my car about 3 weeks ago was vandalized. Someone left a note saying you're gay. Get the f out and my girlfriend told me to watch a documentary called Fagbug. You showed me it's okay to be who I am and no threat can change me. Thank you." Ashley
