     “Pride” is the July film shown by the Social Justice Committee at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 2000 S. Solano.  Based on a true story, the film depicts a group of lesbian and gay activists who raised money to help families affected by the British miners’ strike in 1984.  The union was reluctant to accept the group’s support due to the union’s public relations’ worries about being openly associated with a gay group.  “R” rated for occasional strong language and two scenes of a sexual nature.  Film starts at 7:00pm in the Library, free popcorn, donations accepted.
