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.

    Can somebody please tell me what Marks jacket is (the khaki/greenish)? I like the slight rockabilly style of it and can imagine that is some sort of uniform jacket. But i never  saw one exactly like this, with the black collar and this used surface it looks so nice. Is it an original british uniform oder retro but new? Please tell me, i want exactly this one :)

    A biased view on the miners strikes that portray Thatcher as a horrible person and a monster when the mining industry had already been tanking before her administration began and was costing the government more money than it was putting out. While I think they should have tried to find a way to help the miners who lost their jobs, portraying her administration as a regime is offensive. The mining union leaders were not better than her. Even Arthur Scargill was a bad guy. While the premise isn't bad, the portrayal of Thatcher is one sided

    You can not judge people by what they get up to in bed,  we should all   Judge them on their merits as human beings and fighting big powers that to me is a power for change for good in this world , your not born with an aim in life you grow first become adult then you aim for your own destiny your own goals , the pitfalls you face are mean and cruel and you either fail or succeed you either live or die, only together we are strong only together will we succeed. The weak will fall by the wayside but only the strong will survive...

    I don't think it's as much as a comedy as it looks like here in the trailer. But anyway, this movie is wonderful, you're missing out if you don't go see it!
