Stop by Burdine Hall (room 116) on Thursday, Nov. 9th for a free screening of the film “PRIDE.” Doors open at 5 p.m. and the movie begins at 5:30 p.m. A Q&A will follow the movie.
About the film: Inspired by an extraordinary true story of solidarity and unity, “PRIDE” takes place in the UK, during the summer of 1984. Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike. Prompted to action, a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists raise money to support the strikers’ families. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.
The event is hosted by the UT Texas State Employees Union Staff and Faculty Organization and the Pride & Equity Faculty and Staff Association.
