International Day Against Homophobia – Screening of Fagbug

Sunday 17 May 2015, 20:00 – 21:45pm, Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival

To mark this year’s International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHO), Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival are screening the documentary ‘Fagbug’ in Shrewsbury.

IDAHO 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 Organization (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 bonet 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.

This event is taking place at The Hive, 5 Belmont, Shrewsbury SY1 1TE
