About Free screening: But I’m a Cheerleader

But I’m a Cheerleader (1999)

Years before Boy Erased (2018) or The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) came this dream like comedy tackling gay conversion therapy. Megan (Natashe Lyonne) is an all American cheerleader, who after an intervention from friends and family, is sent to “True Directions”, a conversion therapy camp, to ‘cure’ her homosexuality. However as she meets other young people like her and makes friends, Megan begins to understand that her identity isn’t some-thing that can, or should, be fixed. Jamie Babbit and Natasha Lyonne’s more recent success with Russian Doll (2019) comes 20 years after this this satire of heteronormativity, with the iconic Ru-Paul playing hilariously against type as “ex-gay” Mike.

Dir: Jamie Babbit
