Learn how one woman turned a hate crime into an opportunity to inspire. On Thursday, September 18, 2014 “Fagbug Nation” takes you behind the wheel of what it’s like to drive the once vandalized, now famous “Fagbug.” Erin Davies (“Fagbug,” 2009) has her mind set on getting her car to all 50 states, Hawaii and Alaska being the final two. To pull this off, Erin went 54 days without a car, put her car on 5 boats, and flew on 14 planes. The Fagbug gets leis’d in Hawaii and drives through the midnight sun to Alaska, but first makes a pit stop at the Equality House in Topeka, Kansas. Watch as this rainbow colored Beetle serves as a catalyst for our nation on the road to equality and stay for Q & A with Erin afterward! Visit Erin and the Fagbug on the Quad before the movie from 3 – 6 PM. (See flyer below.)See the Fagbug Car & Booth with Erin Davies from 3-6PM at the North Quad with the documentary and discussion following in IRC 120 from 7-9PM.
