PRIDE is a British comedy drama, set in 1984, about a group of London based lesbians and gay men who travel to a small Welsh village to support the striking miners.


Occasional strong language ('f**k'), as well as a number of discriminatory terms, including 'queer', 'poof' and 'dyke'. The use of these words as insults is not condoned.


Verbal and visual sex references include sight of men in a club wearing 'bondage' clothing, including one with a ball gag in his mouth, and a scene in which women roar with laughter as they find a dildo and some porn magazines in a bedroom. The images in the magazines include strong sexualised nudity, but the images appear only briefly and in a very clearly comic context.

Further issues include some drug use, with one character occasionally smoking joints. There is also very mild violence, including a clash between miners and police with angry shoving and shouting, and a scene in which a brick and lit fireworks are thrown through a shop window, but no one inside is hurt.
