Episode 24: But I'm A Cheerleader
YASS we're finally discussing this *classic* of the queer film canon! It's not even our first with RuPaul! But in this movie, RuPaul wears a t-shirt that says "Straight is Great," which is hilarious enough in itself. But if you come for that, stay for the ridiculous gender roles, the pastel colors, the WILD dialogue, Melanie Lynsky's New Zealand accent, Power Team Natasha Lyonne and Clea DuVall, the Queer Vigilante, and like everything else. But also, conversion therapy isn't funny. Except in this movie. Discuss.
