Fag Bug

I’m not entirely aware of all the details behind this website, but I’m impressed by the cause and the website’s logo to the extent I just have to blog about it. 

I came across a photo of the Fag Bug on a Facebook profile with photos from Hanover College in Madison, Indiana. The photos are of a VW Beetle painted in rainbow stripes. The car advertises fagbug.com. From the site:

On the 11th annual National Day of Silence (April 18, 2007), Erin Davies was victim to a hate crime in Albany, NY. 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 hood and driver side of her car. Despite initial shock and embarassment, Erin’s decided to embrace what happened and film a documentary about her 58-day cross country tour around the US and Canada in her car known worldwide as the fagbug. The film follows Erin’s quest to drive her vandalized car over the course of one year and is scheduled to hit the film festival circuit in early 2009. 

Erin, come to Indianapolis and park that sucker on Monument Circle downtown. Then drive it up, down and around I-465 and up I-69. There’s a Christian Bookstore at 116th and Lantern Rd. that I’m sure would love to see this roll up.

Justin has been around the Internet long enough to remember when people started saying “content is king”.

He has worked for some of Indiana’s largest companies, state government, taught college-level courses, and about 1.1M people see his work every year.

You’ll probably see him around Indianapolis on a bicycle.
