You asked for it! In week 3, the Women’s and Queer Department will be bringing you a screening of “But I’m a Cheerleader” for our Queer Gals Movie Nights!
But I’m a Cheerleader is a 1999 American satirical romantic comedy film directed by Jamie Babbit and written by Brian Wayne Peterson. Natasha Lyonne stars as Megan Bloomfield, a high school cheerleader whose parents send her to a residential inpatient conversion therapy camp to cure her lesbianism. There, Megan soon comes to embrace her sexual orientation, despite the therapy, and falls in love.
Snacks will be provided! 🍿
