The But I’m a Cheerleader: Director’s Cut is Coming Soon to Blu-ray!

A LGBTQ+ classic, this candy-colored comedy of sexual discovery chronicles the life of Megan (Natasha Lyonne) a typical teenager coming of age in anything but typical fashion. Megan’s super normal suburban existence is filled with friends, pom-poms and rah-rah enthusiasm… until her straight-laced parents (Mink Stole and Bud Cort) suspect that their “little poodle” may, in fact, be showing deviant lesbian tendencies!

In a complete panic, Megan’s parents elicit the of a rehabilitation camp called True Directions, run under the strict, all-seeing eyes of the sadistic anti-gay Mary (Cathy Moriarty). Megan dutifully gets with the deprogramming so she can quickly return to her life, but the presence of Graham (Clea Duvall) keeps her from forgetting who she truly is.

RuPaul, Melanie Lynskey, Michelle Williams, Eddie Cibrian, Katharine Towne, Richard Moll, Julie Delpy and more also co-star in this beloved comedy!

Halloween Highlights: 50 Queer Horror Flicks We Think Are Worth a Look – Part 1

If you’re the same kind of scare-seeking movie geek that I am, you’ll know that October is a time to light a few candles, turn down the lights, open up the windows to let in that fresh autumn breeze… before really setting the mood with some seasonally-appropriate scary movies! This month, I’m sure we’ll revisit some tried and true classics (think The Exorcist, The Shining, Rosemary’s Baby, the original Halloween). I have plans to finally bust open the Criterion Collection edition of Don’t Look Now I bought forever ago. Being authorities on all things gay-cinema, though, we at TLAgay.com wanted to put in a good word for some queer movies that don’t make the usual ranked horror lists. We came up with a selection of 50 different gay titles that are either direct horror movies or horror adjacent (suspense, mysteries, thrillers). Below, you’ll find the first ten movies – in alphabetical order – with new lists appearing each Monday in October. Keep checking back each week for the latest additions!

 

We tried to limit these to films that are currently available on our site – either on DVD or Blu-ray, or available via our On-Demand service. If a movie is missing from this list, chances are good it’s just out of print or otherwise currently unavailable/hard to access. This isn’t, as you’ll see, a definitive list of the greatest gay horror – that’s not what we were going for. This is just a sampling of some offerings that usually fly under the radar. Some are good, some are great, some are delightfully campy and ridiculous, some might be downright terrible, but they’re all available to help get your into the Halloween spirit!
