Teen Movie Night –To highlight LGBT Pride Month, we are watching Fagbug. Turning a slur sprayed on her VW Beetle from scarlet letters into a badge of honor, Sage College graduate student Erin Davies
hits 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.
