But I'm a Cheerleader



But I’m a Cheerleader*
Jamie Babbit
1999, USA, 35 mm, 85 min, original version with Spanish subtitles

Megan, the adolescent daughter of a conservative US couple, seems like the model teenager, but when her parents suspect she’s a lesbian they send her to a camp that claims to “cure” homosexuality. There, Megan is immersed in a world of gender stereotypes that the centre’s director uses to try and push the young people towards heterosexuality. Luckily, Graham shows her that being homosexual is not something that needs correcting.
