SYNOPSIS

It’s the summer of 1984 – Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is on strike. At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But there is a problem. The Union seems embarrassed to receive their support.

But the activists are not deterred. They decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a mining village in deepest Wales and set off in a mini bus to make their donation in person. And so begins the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership.

QUEERmdbINFO
Eleven groups of Lesbian and Gays Support The Miners (LGSM) were founded throughout the UK in 1984. "Pits and Perverts" taking place at the Electric Ballroom in Camden, London, became their biggest fundraising event. In return miners' labour groups began to support the LGBT community.
