Storyline

In 1984 20 year old closet gay Joe hesitantly arrives in London from Bromley for his first Gay Pride march and is taken under the collective wing of a group of gay men and Lesbian Steph, who meet at flamboyant Jonathan and his Welsh partner Gethin's Soho bookshop. Not only are gays being threatened by Thatcher but the miners are on strike in response to her pit closures and Northern Irish activist Mark Ashton believes gays and miners should show solidarity. Almost by accident a mini-bus full of gays find themselves in the Welsh village of Onllwyn in the Dulais valley and through their sincere fund raising and Jonathan's nifty disco moves persuade most of the community that they are on the same side. When a bigot tries to sabotage the partnership with a tabloid smear Mark turns it back on her with a hugely successful benefit concert to which most of the villagers, now thoroughly in tune with their gay friends, turn up. The miners are defeated and return to work but at the Pride march ... Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

In the final scene shot outside the Houses of Parliament and set in the late 1980s, Portcullis House is shown in the background. The building was not commissioned until 1992 and only opened in 2001. Also, the Terrace of the Commons is shown in the background of the same scene with marques on it. These would not have been installed in the 1980s and were a later addition. See more »

Quotes

[Explaining Why Lee and Carl Have Been Illegally Arrested]
Jonathan: A police officer has the right to stop you if - that's the important word here - *if* he has reasonable grounds to believe a crime is gonna be committed.
Dai: Are you absolutely sure about this?
Jonathan: Police harassment, dear. I could set it to music.
Sian: And if he does?
Jonathan: Then he must formally charge you within 24 hours of that arrest. But reasonable grounds means concrete evidence that can stand up in court. It doesn't mean he doesn't like the look of ...

Truly uplifting, great fun and a moving story
3 September 2014 | by (Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

The film, so appropriately named, delivers a moving story about Pride, friendship and solidarity. When I wasn't laughing at the incredible performances from the top cast, I was crying at the emotional and moving story that runs through the film.

This so easily could have slipped into a tragic or an over politically charged story, but instead and to its benefit is so beautifully written and balanced. The clear messages come through hand-in-hand with side splitting humour all in the right places and never over done.

Simply wonderful and a credit to the British Film Industry and all the fine home-grown talent on display.

Bless you all
