Screening of Pride: Ruskin College, 16th Oct @ 6pm
To mark the end of the series of events at Ruskin which have celebrated the 30th anniversary of the 1984-85 miner's strike, I've organised a screening of the hit film Pride for 16th October. The film unpicks the important role of the support group Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM) in supporting the strike and local mining communities. On the night we will hear from Mike Jackson (one of the original founders of LGSM and now Secretary to the group) and Bridget Bell and the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign. The event is free and all are welcome to attend the screening and contribute to the panel discussion afterwards. The event will fundraise, via donations, for the hardship fund for trade union students at Ruskin College.
