Southend-on-Sea Borough Council’s LGBT Forum (OUTreach) and Unison Southend Branch’s LGBT group are putting on a free screening of hit 2014 film Pride at the Beecroft Gallery on Monday 18 May.
Based on real events, Pride retells the formation of an unlikely alliance between a group of gay rights activists and a Welsh community torn apart by the 1970s Miners strikes. Taking on themes of prejudice, discrimination and solidarity, this is a film that will not fail to make you laugh, think and maybe even shed a tear.

Now, in a nod to the bond formed all those years ago – and to mark IDAHO Day (International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia) – the Council and Unison invite you to attend this fantastic, free cinematic event at the Beecroft Gallery lecture theatre. Popcorn will be provided and there will be an opportunity to network after the screening over a glass of wine or fruit juice and nibbles.
