Film Friday: But I’m A Cheerleader

I’m starting a new column to share some of my favorite older movies! First off is But I’m a Cheerleader  It’s about a high school cheerleader whose parents send her to a conversion therapy camp to “cure her lesbianism.”  Besides being hilarious and ridiculous, the set on this movie is amazing. I mean, the bathroom wall is made of daisies. It’s this magical mix of colorful Barbie suburbia and so over the top. Such a colorful movie! Did I mention Natasha Lyonne and Rupaul are in it? It’s currently streaming on Amazon Prime if you want to watch!


In keeping up with goals I’m reading as many books as I can get my hands on. Though the classics hold my heart, I’m braving the waters of modern literature and forcing myself to take a dip. And wow, there’s a handful of beautiful, fresh writing out there released this year. Here is my current list. What books are on your radar? 1. The Goldfinch | 2. The Luminaries | 3. The Two Hotel Francforts | 4. Tomorrow There Will Be Apricots | 5. The Lowland
