78 - But I’m a Cheerleader ft Aimee Smith

June 20, 2022

It's Pride Month in America and we thought we'd invite along an incredible guest, Aimee Smith, wave our colourful flags and watch the lesbian cult film But I'm a Cheerleader (1999) starring Natasha Lyonne, Clea DuVall, RuPaul and New Zealand's own Melanie Lynskey!

"Megan is an all-American girl. A cheerleader. She has a boyfriend. But Megan doesn’t like kissing her boyfriend very much. And she’s pretty touchy with her cheerleader friends. Her conservative parents worry that she must be a lesbian and send her off to “sexual redirection” school, where she must, with other lesbians and gays learn how to be straight." 

Join Matt, James, Cass and Aimee as they take a look at one of the very few lesbian rom-coms and determine whether our squad should be cheering or cringing. Whatever we land on,
🏳️‍🌈 Happy Pride! Keep being fabulous 💋
