Selected and introduced by LGBT Youth Scotland Borders Involved Group, this now well-loved film tells the story of the activists who in 1984 formed Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners, in solidarity with the miners strike.
“We love Pride because it shows how the miners and LGBT group supported each other, overcoming their differences to fight against oppression. It’s empowering in that It shows how far we’ve come in campaigning for LGBT rights, and importantly, it’s funny too!”
