About the Pride 💬


  • Based on the inspirational true story.

Set in the summer of 1984 - Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is on strike.

  • Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM)

''I've had a lot of new experiences during this strike. Speaking in public. Standing on a picket line. And now I'm in a gay bar. Well, if you don't like it, you can go home. As a matter of fact, I do like it. Beer's a bit expensive, mind. But, really, there's only one difference between this and a bar in South Wales. The women. They're a lot more feminine in here. What I'd really like to say to you tonight is thank you. If you're one of the people that's put money in these buckets, if you've supported LGSM, then thank you, because what you've given us is more than money. It's friendship. When you're in a battle against an enemy so much bigger, so much stronger than you, well, to find out you had a friend you never knew existed, well, that's the best feeling in the world. So, thank you.''

Paddy Considine as Dai Donovan

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.

''Sometimes you have to attack to push forward, and that's exactly what we're gonna do.''

Ben Schnetzer as Mark Ashton

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 minibus to make their donation in person.

''Welcome, ladies and gentlemen. To the gays, to the straights, and to the as yet undecided. Welcome to the Electric Ballroom, for this, the first ever Pits and Perverts Benefit Ball.''

Ben Schnetzer as Mark Ashton

''Back in our miners' lodge in Wales, we have a banner. And it's old. It's very old, maybe a hundred years. And it's this, two hands together joined like this. Well, I tell you now, you've worn our badge, 'Coal not dole,' and when the time comes, you have my word on this, we will wear yours. Shoulder-to-shoulder, hand-to-hand.''

Paddy Considine as Dai Donovan

And so begins the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership.

''Don't give it all to the fight. Save some for home.''

Paddy Considine as Dai Donovan

''Say not the struggle naught availeth, The labor and the wounds are vain, The enemy faints not, nor faileth, And as things have been they remain. If hopes were dupes...''

Pete Seeger - Solidarity Forever

When the union's inspiration through the workers' blood shall run,
There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun;
Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one,
But the union makes us strong.
Solidarity forever,
Solidarity forever,
Solidarity forever,
For the union makes us strong.



Billy Bragg - There is Power in a Union

There is power in a factory, power in the land
Power in the hands of a worker
But it all amounts to nothing if together we don't stand
There is power in a union

Now the lessons of the past were all learned with workers' blood
The mistakes of the bosses we must pay for
From the cities and the farmlands to trenches full of mud
War has always been the bosses' way, sir

The Union forever defending our rights
Down with the blackleg, all workers unite
With our brothers and our sisters from many far off lands
There is power in a union

Now I long for the morning that they realize
Brutality and unjust laws can not defeat us
But who'll defend the workers who cannot organize
When the bosses send their lackeys out to cheat us?

Money speaks for money, the Devil for his own
Who comes to speak for the skin and the bone
What a comfort to the widow, a light to the child
There is power in a union
