Based on true events, Pride is set in 1980s London, where a group of lesbian and gay activists decide to unite against their shared enemies: Margaret Thatcher, the police, and the press. They form a group called LGSM: Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners. The group travels to Wales to support the striking miners, but the journey – both internal and external – isn’t easy for everyone.
The activists and their enemies are portrayed by an all-star cast: George Mackay, Dominic West, Andrew Scott, Ben Schnetzer, Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Paddy Considine, and others. Their performances make for an emotional ride that leaves viewers feeling empowered and moved.
Here are fifteen of the film’s colourful stills, which accentuate the themes of diversity and unity.
