In 2014, I went to the cinema (those were the days!) to see a film called Pride. I knew only a handful of details about the true story and the figures it portrayed but by the time the closing credits scrolled, I was left with the realisation that, though a fictionalized version of events, I had watched something very important. The events explored in Pride, which is available to watch on Box of Broadcasts, the story of a group of LGBT activists who threw their support behind the cause of the 1984-85 national miners’ strike and raised thousands of pounds in funds for a small mining village in Wales, is not taught on any school curriculum but is a vital part of British history, culture, and society, and a story that everyone should know. At the centre of the group, named ‘Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners’ (LGSM), was its co-founder Mark Ashton, a dynamic and impassioned activist who dedicated much of his tragically short life to improving the lives of others.
