After her friends and family decide that she must be a lesbian, cheerleader Megan is sent off to a rehabilitation centre to learn how to be straight. However there she meets Graham, another lesbian, and they quickly grow closer as the centre’s ridiculous methods fail to stop them from being themselves.

Starring Natasha Lyonne, Clea DuVall and RuPaul, this is a queer classic and the perfect film for Pride.

Selected by GFT’s Youth Board

GFT Youth Board member Kiera met with Lydia Honeybone, film programmer and curator at GAMIS, to discuss LGBT cinema and the impact of cult classic, But I’m A Cheerleader. Watch the interview below.
