Film Review: “Pride”

pride-film Now available online: a short review of the recent UK hit film, Pride, which was originally published a few months ago in Red Pepper magazine.

I note that, despite some critics’ discomfort with Pride‘s feel-good tone, the filmmakers successfully make a few salient political points. It offers lessons on solidarity-building beyond identity-based justice organising, and an indictment of recent attempts to depoliticise LGBTQ rights movements. All of which, I believe, is worth celebrating.
