To mark this years International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT), Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival are screening the documentary Fagbug.
IDAHOT is an annual worldwide event with the aim of raising awareness of LGBT rights violations and stimulate interest in LGBT rights work worldwide. The 17th May commemorates the date when homosexuality was removed from the International Classification of Diseases of the World Health Organisation (WHO) in 1990.
Fagbug is a documentary following Erin Davies and her VW Beetle.
On 18th April 2007, Erin found the words “fag” and “U R gay” spray-painted on her car window and bonnet due to her car sporting a rainbow sticker. In response, Erin decided to embrace what happened by leaving the graffiti on her car, putting her studies on hold and embarking upon a video-documented 55,000 mile (89,000 km) journey through 41 U.S. states.
