ThursGAYS Movie Night: But I'm a Cheerleader!Full Cup (388 Van Duzer Street, Staten Island, NY, United States) Map it Free
The Ex-gay movement is a serious problem affecting the LGBT community, but with a heavy dose of Camp, Jamie Babbit has transformed the topic into one of the best, funniest lesbian movies ever: But I’m a Cheerleader.
I mean, Ru-Paul plays an ex-gay counselor who’s in love with the obviously gay son of the oblivious woman who runs the program, how could this movie not be fun? The central characters are Megan (Natasha Lyonne), the cheerleader sent to Ex-Gay camp “True Directions” by her concerned parents & friends & boyfriend, and surly misfit Graham (Clea DuVall), who Megan meets at True Directions.
The film challenges, mocks and exposes the ridiculousness of gender norms on both sides of the game while charming audiences with nonstop campy humor and quick, witty dialogue. But most of all, there is Clea Duvall putting her hair behind her ear at just the right moment, being homosexy and making the movie end on a high note.
Doors at 8pm; Movie at 9pm!
