The Gay Rub - A Documentary
The Gay Rub is a documentary of a project of the same name led by Steven Reigns devoted to collecting rubbings from LGBTQ historical markers, signs, tombstones, cenotaphs, plaques, and monuments.

The Gay Rub’s aim is to help draw more attention to the markers and the LGBTQ significance that prompted them.
