I’m here to tell you guys about a film I am completely and utterly psyched for.
As some of you may know, I’m Welsh, and as many more of you know, I’m queer. This film is frighteningly important to me.
Way back in the 1980s under Thatcher’s government, the mining industry was under threat. Pride is the story of the LGBT activists who stepped up to the mark and raised money for mining families despite hostility and oppression.
The film explores a dated culture and an attitude prevalent even in contemporary society. What’s more, it explores a beautiful union of opposing communities, in a blunt, unashamed, humorous, way.
This film is so important. It’s a true story. It’s fantastic queer representation. And it comes out today.
THERE IS NOT ENOUGH HYPE ABOUT THIS FILM.
Go and watch this film, I beg of you.
If that doesn’t convince you, it’s even got Andrew Scott.
