I am waiting and looking forward very much to seeing it. As I mentioned in a thread yesterday, it was gay folk (including trans and dragkings) that started the whole PRIDE thing off after the Stonewall riots. In the case of the film you mention I think it reflects that LGB & T folk have just as much a social conscience as 'normal' (whatever that is) left wing or liberal folk do

I have know several gay miners (now most have died of mine related illness NOT AIDS as some would have say) and they lived in great fear of being found out back then. One man I know who goes to a club I sing at was imprisoned for being gay at one spell and he was in a long term relations with him partner (who recently dies after them being together for 35 years!). Thank heavens people are willing to stand up and be heard eh?
