Inspirational comedy, Pride, tells the little-heard true-life tale of how a lesbian and gay activist group set about raising money to support the miner's strikes in the mid '80s.
It’s 1984 and a violent industrial dispute is spreading across the nation, but support for the miners is about to come from an unlikely source: a gay and lesbian activist group who fundraise for the miners' families. And when the Union rejects the gay activists' help, they decide to deliver their donation in person, travelling to a small mining town in the heart of Wales.
Pride stars Bill Nighy (Hot Fuzz), Andrew Scott (Sherlock) and Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake).
THE INDEPENDENT’S ELLA ALEXANDER SAYS: “A faith-restoring, heartwarming romcom about gay activists and striking miners.”
