Trailer:

 

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, and later sets off in a mini bus headed for a mining village in deepest Wales

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.
