We’re wrapping up Pride by revisiting one of the first gay movies we ever saw; But I’m a Cheerleader. This movie came out at a really strange time both for gay cinema, and for us. There weren’t a lot of really main stream queer features and as a teenager looking for that content, this really hit the spot. The criticism of it is valid. It certainly feels a bit like it’s making light of what is a really terrible situation. But we feel like it works and we totally love almost everything about it.
So what do you think of But I’m a Cheerleader? Is it a queer classic? Let us know over on Twitter or in the Youtube comments! We want to hear your thoughts! Also, let us know what your favorite queer movies are so we can give them a watch. For now though, settle in for today’s episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
