Movie of the Week: BUT I'M A CHEERLEADER

In 1999 Natasha Lyonne starred as Megan Bloomfield, a popular cheerleader at her high school. She has a popular, handsome boyfriend but she can't help feeling goosebumps when she is looking at the cute girls at her school. She is sent to a rehabilitation program to attempt to convert back to being heterosexual.

The movie explores the social construction of gender roles and heteronormativity. The comedic aspect of the subject matter helped make the movie the cult classic it is today. Its the perfect pride movie for the week!
