More than 15 years after its initial release, Jamie Babbit’s lesbian teen romance But I’m a Cheerleader (featuring Clea DuVall and Natasha Lyonne and set in a gay rehab camp) feels as fresh and gloriously defiant as ever. In the intervening years, Babbit – one of the few out lesbians working in Hollywood – has continued to make popular work imbued with the same queer spirit and strong female-focussed storylines. Whether working with LGBT content or not, Babbit brings a gleefully queer eye to features like The Quiet, Itty Bitty Titty Committee, and Addicted to Fresno, and to TV such as Popular, United States of Tara, The L Word, Girls and Looking. We’re thrilled to welcome Jamie to discuss a career that runs from early acclaim in LGBT fests with her winningly quirky short films, to creating space for original voices within the heart of Hollywood’s film and television industries.
