In 1978, when the push to decriminalise homosexuality has stalled, a group of activists decide they must make one final attempt to celebrate who they are. Led by former union boss, Lance Gowland, they get a police permit and spread the word. On a freezing winter's night, they cloak themselves in fancy dress, join hands, and parade down oxford street. But they have no idea that angry police lie in wait, and the courage they find that night will finally mobilise the nation.Written by

A great look back in time at how far we have come.
I am not Australian, but I was 20 in 1978 and very much remember what life was like for me as a gay man in NY. This film did an excellent job at recreating the mid to late 70s and what I'm sure life was like for many gay people all over the world.
The acting is excellent , the movie is extremely moving , and within the story there is much attention to detail when it comes to the lives and struggles of individual characters. I did not feel there was one false note in what I was watching. The movie is worth it alone to watch to see just how far we have come in 40 years.
