About the film: Set in the summer of 1984 - Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) 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. 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 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. Award nominations: PRIDE received the a nomination for Outstanding Film at the 26th annual GLAAD Media Awards and three Dorian Award nominations from the Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association - including film of the year.
