    Is this grammatical:

    She must be a hero down in South Beach. I remember watching Birdcage for the first time and thought that the movie was an exaggeration of the LGBT community over there until I passed by during my cross country trip last year and I couldn't believe what I was seeing... Men in g strings out in public is definitely not a common occurrence.

    If you mean the movie The Birdcage, then you should write it that way. There's no need for an ellipsis in the last line. I think 'G-strings' is normally spelled like this - though it varies.
    There's some ambiguity in your last sentence. Are you suggesting that you saw men in G-strings out in public, but decided it wasn't common where you were.

    I mean men in G-strings in public is just not something you see every day anywhere, right?

    That's what I'm questioning. You certainly don't see it everywhere. But I would bet that there are places where you could see this every day. Maybe the place you saw it was one of those places?

    Yes, and my friends and I are thinking about moving there. Maybe. Just kidding. Never know.

    She must be a hero down in South Beach. I remember watching birdcage for the first time and thought that the movie was an exaggeration of the LGBT community over there until I passed by during my/a cross country trip last year and I couldn't believe what I was seeing... Men in g strings out in public is definitely not a common occurrence.

    Should it be my or a in this situation? Or it means the same?

    I think 'passed through' would work better than 'passed by', but you could use either 'my' or 'a' with essentially no difference.
