Pride is a 2014 comedy based on a true story. The film depicts a group of UK lesbian and gay activists who worked to help miners and their families affected by the lengthy miners' strike in 1984. The alliance was unlike any ever seen before and was ultimately successful. This is an inspiring story that highlights the importance of solidarity between unions and social justice movements, but also the absurdly funny bits that might crop up as the two learn about each other!
