Asheville, NC, March 06, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Parking in a Chevy Nova with her boyfriend and watching a Blue Ridge Mountain sunset might be an unusual scenario for coming out, but that’s just what happens to Matty McEire. An aspiring singer-songwriter, she begins to explore her new identity by visiting the only gay bar in town, a dark, seedy hole-in-the-wall. There Matty begins to connect with other like-minded women to create lesbian community outside the bar.
