Description 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 the following year a vast contingent of miners show up to repay their comrades with their show of support.

    It took me more than 3 and a half hours to watch this movie because I kept replaying the scenes with Andrew Scott in them.

    Brilliant film & the 80s was a bad time for the LGBT community & miners here.

    I was a bit disappointed with the film. Was really hoping to like this film. I know its base off true events but there was lot of bad cliche and stereotypes in this film. Oh well.

    If someone told me' burn in hell or god hate you, I just take it as a joke. I don't take it seriously. I don't give a shit about your manner. I do whatever I want. I don't care about other that much. So my mum always told me I am selfish and stubborn. God hate no one. I care about myself, my love ,my family , the children, the good people and the animals. I don't care about someone who hate other without reason.

    I don't understand why do some people hate LGBT? There is no reason to hate them. I grew up in a middle class family and we live in country side. I never heard about LGBT till I was 17. I encountered two lesbian couples and one is our distinct relative( I didn't know the term Lesbian at that time). I never heard talking bad about them from my family or from other people. May be we just simply live our life and we don't think too much about other and we don't judge other. When I attend the university in Big city and I learned so many new things. I knew what LGBT mean. I never felt it is disgusting since the first time I heard about it .Honestly I love them. I think their love is more special or something that is diffrent. I heard some antigay talking too. What things taught or made them to think gay is disgusting? I hate people who hate gay. I think most people in our country behave like outsiders in concern with LGBT.

    I really enjoyed this movie,it was like another piece of the past came back to remind us what they were fighting in the past,because they really believed in what they were fighting not like today feminists and LGTB(for the record I'm not generalizing things I'm just disappointed by they methods,they forgot their ideals) because today in this crazy and illogical world full of discrimination,terrorist attacks and greed we need each other more than in the past and despite the fact that I'm not a gay person I feel close to this people because I know what means being judged by a stereotype without having the chance to prove what you really are.Also it was so weird seeing Imelda Staunton playing the nice lady instead of the wicked one.

    Not a great trailer - brilliant film. Funny yet serious, political yet genuinely heartwarming, I could not recommend it higher, I wish that there were some bi and trans characters, but then it's based on real life so if there weren't any in that group then sound. It is one of my favourite films of all time and if you're not sure whether or not to give it a try I would encourage you to do so.
  • Peio Maldonado 2016-07-11 06:08:32
    I cried with this film, it is amazing :)... More films like this please...
  • foreverVanney 2016-07-10 18:35:08
    I loved this movie, it's funny and heartfelt and best of all: based on a real story. Though the characters are of course fictionalised, and they were amazing. I would really recommend it if you like to have a good laugh (which is seldom enough in gay-themed movies)
