Davies refused to be silent when her VW Beetle was vandalized and marked with homophobic slurs in 2007, just because it sported a rainbow bumper sticker. Her presentation at Eastern will raise awareness about her belief to give a voice to those who are silent; inspire others to take a stand against bullies; and be an example of how to overcome obstacles with creativity.
Upon founding the project four years ago, Davies has gained sponsorship from the Volkswagen Group of America and the Sundance Film Festival. In addition, Davies has produced a documentary of her journey, which can be found on her website at www.fagbug.com.
