“You see what we done here. By pledging our friendship. We made history.”

Cosy up this WinterFest for a screening of Matthew Warchus’ warming and rousing 2014 film ‘Pride’. On Thursday 25 July, in your favourite, my favourite, everybody’s favourite Rowdy Library. Kicks off at 4pm and there will be SNACKS.

It’s Summer 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power, and the National Union of Mineworkers are 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. But the only problem is the Union seems too embarrassed to receive their support.

NOTE: this event is autonomous (for LGBTQIA+ students only thanx!)
