To celebrate LGB&T history month we have received permission to have a screening of the Bafta and British Independent Film award winning film Pride. This is the heart warming and extraordinary true story of an unlikely alliance between LGBT activists and a Welsh mining community in the 1980s. It's the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers 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. The activists are not deterred. They decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners, 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.
