Lez-ssentials But I'm A Cheerleader

Leigh and Ellie dive into But I'm A Cheerleader for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. But I'm A Cheerleader is a 1999 movie about gay conversion camp starring Natasha Lyonne and Clea Duvall. Leigh and Ellie love this movie in all it's CAMP-y glory and have a lot to say about the Pepto Bismol colored outfits, finding their root, Andre living his best gay life and the ridiculous cast including RuPaul and Michelle Williams. Lez-ssentials comes complete with a But I'm A Cheerleader drinking game because every lesbian movie should be accompanied by heavy drinking. This episode also comes with an original Lez-ssentials song based off of the movie. "Mommy Dearest." Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode. Leigh Holmes Foster (@lshfoster) and Ellie Brigida (@elliebrigida).
