Striking With Pride: United at the Coalface…

A few of us have contributed to this new Sky documentary on today ‘Striking with Pride: United at the Coalface.’  I gave them some photos of The Bell and of Pride 1987 to use. 

“‘Striking With Pride: United at the Coalface’ is a brand-new Sky Original feature documentary, exploring the unlikely alliance forged between the gay men and lesbians of London, and the striking miners of South Wales, between the 1984 and 1985 London Prides.    

Made famous by the 2014 BAFTA award-winning film Pride, this is one of the most unexpected and uplifting love stories ever, not between two people, but between two communities who – seemingly worlds apart – found common cause and compassion for each other in the face of immense challenges and changed the course of history for queer people in the UK.    

Everyone loved the film, but the real story behind the script is much richer and more powerful than you could ever imagine, and the legacy of these events is still felt to this day, forty years on since the 1984/1985 Miners’ Strike.”

Available on Sky and Now TV.
