But I’m a Cheerleader

October 3, 2019 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Free - £8
Three people stand in a row looking bored and at the camera: a white person with short dark hair, a white person with long dark hair and glasses, and a white person with long blonde hair. They are all wearing an apparent uniform of pink blouses green pinnies, and bright blue wasing up gloves. In the background is a bright turquoise wall.

As part of our strand on queerness and religion, You Gotta Have Faith, we bring you classic queer rom-com But I’m a Cheerleader on the 20th anniversary of its release. Natasha Lyonne – of Orange is the New Black and Russian Doll fame – stars as Megan Bloomsfield, a high school cheerleader whose strait-laced friends and family suspect is a lesbian. To ‘cure’ her of her lesbianism, Megan is sent to a Christian conversion therapy camp, where she defies the rules, meets a series of kooky queer characters, embraces her sexual orientation, and falls in love. Other notable cast members include Clea DuVall, Michelle Williams, and RuPaul.

Tickets are priced on a sliding scale £0-£8 depending on what you can afford. To book, please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.
