All out! Dancing in Dulais - the real Pride

For those who have seen the film Pride, here is a documentary of the events that led to it being made. It is the story of how Lesbians and Gays created their own support group for the miners and formed an unlikely bond with a South Wales mining community.

As the blurb oin YouTube says: 'The South Wales miners' strike of 1984-1985 saw the formation of a curious alliance between a plucky group of young homosexuals from London and miners in Dulais Valley. In Dancing in Dulais, an initial wariness on the part of the young gays, the miners, and the miners' families gives way, through sometimes delicate interactions, to a loving and purposeful solidarity. The unembellished videography captures well this fascinating-to-witness union of two disparate yet ultimately kindred groups. The "Pits and Perverts" benefit concert features the Bronski Beat."
