Event Description

Let’s get cozy! Join Mycelium in a screening of queer cult classic “But I'm a Cheerleader”. In this 1999 American satirical romantic teen comedy, Natasha Lyonne stars as Megan Bloomfield, a high school cheerleader whose parents send her to a residential in-patient conversion therapy camp to cure her lesbianism. We’ll laugh, cheer, and find ourselves in queer cinema. After the screening we will have a quick debrief to reflect on the film, SOGEICE, and queer and transness. 

 

Mycelium Description 

Mycelium is space for queer & trans youth 16-29 across what is currently known as BC, where we gather to center healing, pleasure, and justice in our lives as we envision and create a world liberated from HIV & Hep C stigma. 

We are committed to reducing stigma related to HIV & Hep C and to building communities where we feel safe talking about the highs and lows of sex, drugs, relationships and all the things that bring us pleasure. 

 

Land Acknowledgement 

Mycelium events take place on traditional, unceded territories of various First Nations in what is now colonially referred to as ‘British Columbia’. We hold this fact in our hearts and actions throughout our work at Mycelium. Our team is committed to an ongoing process of learning what it means to do work on this land in a way that brings us closer to Indigenous Sovereignty.  

Mycelium offers online and in person programs organized by coordinators based on the traditional, unceded territories of the
