Queer Book Club: 'But I'm a Cheerleader'

Join us for a special Valentine's Day themed screening of the comedic classic But I'm a Cheerleader! Megan lives a quiet suburban teen life until her parents start to worry that she is lesbian. They ship her off to a gay conversion camp to 'fix' her, not anticipating that Megan will learn to celebrate her sexuality and maybe even find true love.  For February, we are taking a break from books, but there will be a short essay to read and discuss before the film screening.
