In Second Helping: Read These Lips, Volume 2,  we featured a brave young lesbian, Erin Davies, who drove around North America to confront homophobia after her beloved VW was defaced. Since then, she’s been doing a ton of stuff to record her adventures which you can read up on at One of her projects was to make a film about the event that became fagbug, the journey. We’re happy to report that Fagbug will be released as a film and on DVD on July 13.

FAGBUG (83 minutes) – Official release: July 13, 2010
Garden Thieves Pictures
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 United States 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 one year, Erin decided to give her car a makeover. DVD cover photography by Katherine Wright ©2010. Also available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
