After sheepishly attending his first Pride march in London, Joe ‘Bromley’ Cooper (George MacKay, Femme) finds his tribe with a gloriously eclectic group of gay activists, galvanised by their outspoken leader Mark Ashton (Ben Schnetzer, The Book Thief). Identifying kinship with another marginalised community facing the hardships of 1984 Britain, they become ‘Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners’ to fundraise for striking miners. Making tracks in a minibus to the close-knit Welsh village of Onllwyn, the gang embark on an emotional journey and forge a trailblazing friendship – which proved transformative for LGBTQ+ lives in the UK for years to come.

Returning to cinemas in celebration of both its 10th anniversary, and Pride month itself, Matthew Warchus’ moving comedy-drama is a celebration of queer joy in the face of towering adversity, and a powerful historical document of working class life under Thatcher’s power. Featuring a who’s-who of British acting talent – including Imelda Staunton (The Crown), Bill Nighy (Living), Dominic West (The Affair), Jessica Gunning (Baby Reindeer), Paddy Considine (Dead Man’s Shoes) and man-of-the-moment Andrew Scott (All Of Us Strangers) is an out and proud modern classic.
