Join us for this film screening/fundraiser to celebrate IDAHOBIT 2016 (International Day Against HOmophobia, BIphobia & Transphobia) – all funds raised support Goulburn Valley Pride, Greater Shepparton’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer & allies social-support group.
Synopsis: Its 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.
