SQIFF 2019:
But I’m a Cheerleader

Thu 3 October 2019

As part of our strand on queerness and religion, we bring you classic queer rom-com But I’m a Cheerleader on the 20th anniversary of its release.

Natasha Lyonne - of Orange is the New Black and Russian Doll fame - stars as Megan Bloomsfield, a high school cheerleader whose strait-laced friends and family suspect is a lesbian. To ‘cure’ her of her lesbianism, Megan is sent to a Christian conversion therapy camp, where she defies the rules, meets a series of kooky queer characters, embraces her sexual orientation, and falls in love. Other notable cast members include Clea DuVall, Michelle Williams, and RuPaul.

Part of You Gotta Have Faith, a strand on queerness and religion at Scottish Queer International Film Festival 2019.
