Pride Month is here and we're celebrating! In I Eat Movies #10: No Camping! - The Boys in the Band (1970) / But I'm a Cheerleader, the movie consuming duo feast heavily on Friedkin's groundbreaking adaptation of Mart Crowley's deeply moving and controversial stage play. Featuring one impassioned performance after another, Mike and Dino discuss the criticism the film faced on its representation of gay individuals and who each member of the band we identified the most with. For dessert, we cut into our first offering from the 90s with an indie lesbian tale that casts a satirical spotlight on gay-conversion camps and religion with its tongue firmly implanted in cheek. Choke full of hilarity, heart, a dope indie rock soundtrack and the fabulous RuPaul in a rare non-drag role, what's not to love? Also, Dino visits Fire Island and doesn't know what to do with Jim Parsons while, Mike hails 1999 for something more than Clinton being acquitted. All this and more in our cheer-raising salute to the LGBTQ community!
