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.

It’s hard work maintaining a blog, and Terry uses it to keep track of progressive facebook rants, local news, and other interesting bits. I bet he’d publish a thing for you if you wrote it or made it for him. But if he’s too busy, I can do it. He does all the work on this blog, and I’m very grateful to him for it. – Teri McGrath
