The LGBTQ+ movement in the UK has fought bruising battles for equality. Are Your Proud? combines rare archive footage with interviews from across a spectrum of activists celebrating the progress achieved through movements such as Pride, and asking questions about the future of the Pride celebrations which take place in locations right across the UK.
This screening will feature a post-show Q&A with director Ashely Joiner, who will be joined by LGBTQ+ activist Joan Burnett.
