Time to come out of the closet

Pride tells the story of 20-year-old closet gay, Joe, who hesitantly arrives in London from Bromley for his first Gay Pride march. He's taken under the collective wing of a group of gay men and lesbian Steph, who meet at flamboyant Jonathan and his Welsh partner Gethin's Soho bookshop. Not only are the gay community being threatened by Margaret Thatcher’s government via Clause 28, but the miners are also on strike in response to her pit closures, and Northern Irish activist Mark Ashton believes gays and miners should show solidarity. Almost by accident a mini-bus full of activists find themselves in the Welsh village of Onllwyn and through their sincere fund raising and Jonathan's nifty disco moves persuade most of the community that they are on the same side. When a bigot tries to sabotage the partnership with a tabloid smear Mark turns it back on her with a hugely successful benefit concert to which most of the villagers, now thoroughly in tune with their new comrades, turn up.
