About the Film
It’s the summer of 1984 – Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is on strike. At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But there is a problem. The Union seems embarrassed to receive their support. But the activists are not deterred. They decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a mining village in deepest Wales and set off in a mini bus to make their donation in person. And so begins the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership.
Just watch it
The best film I have seen in a long time.
It is life changing, you will cry, you will laugh and you will find friends among the characters. Pride reminds you what pride is actually about and make you want to do something, demonstrate, march or quit your life and do something amazing. I sound like I am hyping it up, probably but I loved this film and it’s my review!
A beautifully crafted film
An outstanding movie that tells a little known story which cries out to be heard far and wide. It is a fitting tribute to some amazing people who fought against social and industrial decay, adversity and prejudice. Above all, it's a great human story.
Thank you for making this movie, to the cast for such sensitive and entertaining portrayals, for reminding me of my formative years, of the struggles better people than I made so that I can be who I am today, and for making me shed tears of remembrance for those good friends untimely departed.
Fantastic portrayal of a wonderful event in history
