Pride (15) film screening

February 26, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

As part of LGBTQ+ History Month we are screening Pride!

Pride is a British comedy-drama based on a true story about a group of lesbian and gay activists who lend their support to striking miners in Wales.
Set in 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.
