Join us after hours at the Millennium Gallery for a screening of the film PRIDE, followed by a very 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.
The film will be will be followed by a very special Q&A with Welsh Miner and activist Dai Donovan and former Sheffield city councillor Sioned-Mair Richards, and Kate Flannery representing the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign and Friends of Edward Carpenter.
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.
Tickets £6, please book in advance.
