And they all went for Trump! The road is where I fall in love with America over and over again, no matter how much mediated America — the America I see through screens — infuriates and frightens me. It’s a high and low America of art museums and one-star motels, an America where there are often a handful of gay bars in town, if that, and where closet cases are often most open to my idea of fun.
It’s an America I want a young friend of mine to experience before he moves on to a new chapter in his life. So we’re taking a ride through the flyover states – or around 10 or 11 of them, anyway, all of which went for Trump — and staying open to the art, experiences, and people we encounter.
And we hope to get as much interesting footage as possible, and we’ll upload videos as close to daily as we can manage.
We’ll be improvising, but we expect to spend the night in or around Jackson, Mississippi; Nashville, Tennessee; Cincinnati, Toledo and other parts of Ohio and/or Michigan; Indianapolis, Indiana; Saint Louis, Missouri; Kansas City; either Oklahoma City or Bentonville, Arkansas, and Dallas-Ft.Worth.
If you’re in one of those areas and are interested in helping make a video, or you live elsewhere but would like to help support this project by commissioning a private custom video or a cam show, please either message me on YouTube or like/follow my Facebook page or my Instagram account and message me there.
