This story centres on a small, Welsh, mining town, Dulais, during the time of the miners' strikes and the support and financial aid they received from the Lesbian and Gays Support the Miners group. The bond formed between these two differing groups is at once hilarious and touching as they overcome their differences to fight for a shared cause. The film, 'Pride,' gained national recognition when it hit our screens, not only winning a BAFTA but making over £4 million for the UK box office. The film brought a previously unknown story into the public domain, preserving it as an important event in British social history. This book is a fully authorised tie-in which relates the story in full, giving extensive interviews from many of those involved. The accounts relayed offer an eye-opening perspective of a chain of events which began to bring the LGBT community, wider acceptance in Britain.
