Rating:

Small Town Gay Bar is a 2006 American documentary directed by Malcolm Ingram and produced by Kevin Smith. The film captures the existence of two gay bars in rural America: one in Shannon, Mississippi and one in Meridian, Mississippi. Despite a progressive country where gay rights are at the forefront of political rhetoric, many places in the county still suffer from bigotry, and these two gay bars serve as a safe haven for those living through that bigotry. The film also focuses on the hate crime murder of Scotty Joe Weaver in Bay Minette, Alabama and how merely being openly gay in the Deep South is risking one's life. The film paints a portrait of a community of ostracized people that despite feeling like outsiders come together and bond over their shared experience. Small Town Gay Bar was the Grand Jury Award winner for Best Documentary at the 2006 Outfest.
