Denise Morris previews for us a 2014 film called “Pride” that will be featured at an upcoming DSA (Democratic Socialists of America) event. It’s the summer of 1984. Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.
On November 20 at 7:00 pm, Portland DSA Presents "Pride" at the Clinton Street Theater! A discussion with members of the labor and queerfolk caucuses will follow.
