Pride screening benefitting Equality Texas

Pride

Pride, released in 2014, tells the true story of LGBT and union activists in England working together against a common foe: Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. As Thatcher works to bust the power of the mineworkers’ union, the London LGBT activists reach out to support the striking miners and their families in a tiny rural Welsh town. It’s touching, timely and will also screen as part of a fundraiser for Equality Texas at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 27 at the Angelika Plano at the Shops @ Legacy, 7205 Bishop Road, Plano. $12 tickets in advance or $15 at the door.
