It’s the summer of 1984 in England. Margaret Thatcher is in power and more than 20,000 miners are on strike. A group of London-based gay and lesbian activists, who are also threatened by Thatcher’s policies, offer financial assistance to the miners’ families but are rebuffed by the Miners’ Union. Undeterred, the group sets off to a small village in Wales to offer direct support to a community. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all. Inspired by a true story, PRIDE is funny, touching, and uplifting food for the soul.
