But I'm a Cheerleader

"A Comedy Of Sexual Disorientation."

"But I'm a Cheerleader" is a satirical romance from the end of the second millennium and takes its inspiration from stories about homosexual conversion therapy. Megan is a perky cheerleader in her senior year of high school as well as in a relationship with Jared, a high school football player. However, she soon realizes that she would prefer to watch her squad-mates over kissing Jared. When coupled with her vegetarianism and fondness for Melissa Etheridge, people begin to think that she's a lesbian and seek to reform her at True Directions, a "reparative therapy camp."

At the camp, Megan is prompted to admit that she's a lesbian, despite having a traditional Christian upbringing. The camp's program forces campers to admit their deviancy, engage in traditional gender roles, and having straight intercourse. While dealing with the craziness, Megan meets Graham, a lesbian who went in order to avoid being disowned.
