PRIDE is inspired by an extraordinary true story. It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all

    I remember the press the Mail and the Sun and others tearing into the miners. They and thatcher treated these hard working tight knit communites as the enemy from within. Nothing has changed, the media the establishment have always needed groups to set up as the bogey man.

    An absolutely AMAZING film; I was spellbound throughout. I shed tears of joy from start to finish; joy in the overwhelming power of the unity created between these two very different groups through their very similar experiences of overt oppression and marginalisation wielded by the ignorant masses. The message, whether expressly intended or merely inferred, that in times of political bullying, those groups bullied and held down will unite, and good will prevail, came through with bells and whistles; the power of a united oppressed is massive!

    Why wasn't this on the dvd as an extra? There were NO extras on the dvd which is a shame. This would've been a real plus.

    Fabulous movie. Well acted and a great story. See…doesn't matter what one's orientation is, when it comes down to it, we can all pull together if the passion is there.

    I have just watched one of the funniest and moving films I have EVER seen. This film is fantastic and very touching. I urge you all to watch it. Here is the preview. It is based on true accounts of how the miners and the gay community came together. What a wonderful testament to humanity.I come from a mining community, in Ystalyfera just 7-8 miles away from where the film was shot. My my father, and grandparents were all miners. And as I am a gay man, this film was very profound for me.

    I rented this movie a few hours ago.  It is brilliant.  It is very enjoyable.  And it's a true story.  Quite frankly, every gay should see it and so should every straight ally.
