Erin Davies’ National Day of Silence ended with a silent, but potentially deadly bit of vandalism. Some thug – or thugs – took it upon themselves to redecorate her car with a some not-so-lovely anti-gay epithets. You know, “fag” and the grammatically irksome “u r gay”. So, what’d she do?
Rather than washing the message away, Davies decided to take her show on the road to spread the good gay word. Raising awareness of homophobia, this sweet faced lady’s looking for a little solidarity. Her mission statement reads thus:
Erin’s mission is to drive her fagbug on a cross country trip and take it to as many diverse communities as possible. She will be gathering feedback for her fagbug documentary, which will shed light on the intolerance that exists in our society. Erin’s goal is to get at least one million people to add fagbug rainbow stickers to their cars so that no one else is targeted like she was. Until that happens, her car will stay as it is!
If we had a car, Davies, we’d totally adorn it with one of your stickers. Never fear, though, we still support.
Read all about Davies’ adventures – and buy an “I Love Fagbug” t-shirt over at Fagbug.com. Also, grab yourself a fagbug sticker. Davies wants to sell one million. She’s sold 270. Obviously this girl needs a helping hand…
uh, Maybe if you guys were on the ball with this one…. Like the beginning of the summer she would have sold her million or been pretty damn close to it by now. Thanks for reporting on this one. Guess better late than never.
It is a little late in the summer, but hopefully not too late…
Erin made an unscheduled stop in our little town while she was in SC and met at the local Starbucks (who provided free drinks and snacks!) with our local college’s gay group. She was inspirational, down-to-earth, and already a little tired. In rural SC, I can’t tell you how much that meant to my students.
In July, she got word that Volkswagen would sponsor her (gas, maintenance, etc.),
And I have a sticker.
She and the fagbug were in the NYC pride parade. It was cute.
