(2019 UK 97 mins)

It’s a tall order to provide a history of LGBTQ+ rights in 90-odd minutes, but this often inspiring documentary covers a lot of ground using choice personal testimonies and archive footage. The focus is predominantly British, tracing the origins of the Pride march and questioning its future … The final emphasis is on intersectionality and the need for further progress: it seems every breakthrough exposes the need for another. While not exhaustive, this is a thought-provoking watch.  Anna Smith, Time Out
