‘But I’m a Cheerleader’ will be screened at the Flat Rock-Hendersonville Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays get together on Feb. 6.

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. — The Flat Rock-Hendersonville Chapter of Parents, Family and Friends of Lesbians and Gays will screen “But I’m a Cheerleader” on Feb. 6, 6 p.m. at the main branch of the Henderson County Public Library, 301 N. Washington St.

“But I’m a Cheerleader” is a cult satirical romantic comedy which tells the story about Megan Bloomfield, an apparently happy heterosexual high school cheerleader. However, her friends and family are convinced that she is a lesbian and arrange an intervention, sending her to a residential inpatient reparative therapy camp to cure her. There Megan soon realizes that she is indeed a lesbian and, despite the therapy, gradually comes to embrace her sexual orientation.

The event is free and the public is invited. Youth under 17 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
