BMEotD #40: But I’m A Cheerleader (1999)
Poor Megan! All she wants to do is think about girls. She believes it’s a perfectly natural thing. Too bad her parents and friends do not agree. Along with her pompoms, Megan is shipped off to a place called “True Directions”, where the boys wear blue and the girls wear pink. The guys are taught how to be macho and the girls learn how to be homemakers. I mean, hey, that’s what prays the gay away.
Soon after, Megan falls for Graham who is a complete badass. Perhaps it wasn’t the best idea for Director Mary to put all the girls in the same room, or all the boys for that matter. Wait, I don’t wanna ruin it for ya. But I’m a Cheerleader truly exudes satirical brilliance. One of my fave gay/lesbian flicks of all time.
