Documentary on small-town gay life hits home

A typical night with friends easily could turn into a gay-bashing session with Brian Bish as the target.

He recalled one night being followed to his Walkchalk home by a group of baseball bat-wielding men in a pickup.

"They were screaming homophobic slurs," he said.

The message in a documentary shown Thursday night at the Kittanning Public Library resonated with Bish. He remembers abuse from county residents while living in Walkchalk as a gay young adult in the 1990s.
