Seen any good movies lately? Movies are one of the ways most of us explore big ideas. Join Grey Havens Philosophy once a month to talk about the big ideas in the films that make us think. 6:30 PM – 8 PM (Mountain Time, North America). More information below.

Registration is free or pay what you can! We will send you a Zoom link after you register.

This month we’ll be discussing “But I’m a Cheerleader” (1999).Rated R

Megan considers herself a typical American girl. She excels in school and cheerleading, and she has a handsome football-playing boyfriend, even though she isn’t that crazy about him. So she’s stunned when her parents decide she’s gay and send her to True Directions, a boot camp meant to alter her sexual orientation. While there, Megan meets a rebellious and unashamed teen lesbian, Graham. Though Megan still feels confused, she starts to have feelings for Graham.

Watch at home beforehand and then join us on Zoom for a thought-provoking discussion! You can watch But I’m a Cheerleader for free on Youtube – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cD4f6fH6Mk

We’ll be watching 2-3 clips and discussing as a group. Participation encouraged, but not required! Grey Havens is LGBTQ+ friendly, and we encourage a diversity of experiences, perspectives, and ideas in our discussions.

Grey Havens Philosophy is a Philosophy for Children and Communities (P4C) nonprofit based in Longmont, Colorado. For more information find us at greyhavensgroup.org
