Join us after-hours at the Millennium Gallery for a film screening of PRIDE, followed by a special Q&A.
PRIDE is inspired by an extraordinary true story. It's the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers' families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.
This screening of the film is part of LGBT History Month
and Museums Sheffield’s 2018 Protest & Activism
season marking the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act.
Pride is suitable only for people aged 15 and older. No one younger than 15 will be admitted.
