BUT I’M A CHEERLEADER

BIACLThis cult classic is centered around 17-year-old Megan, a high school cheerleader. Her conservative parents and friends begin to worry that she is a lesbian, and she is sent off to True Directions, a “rehabilitation camp” run by homophobic counselor Mary Brown. Ironically, the more time Megan spends at the camp, the more she begins to question just how fixed her sexuality really is.
