My dear friend Jonathan is being played by Dominic West in the new film Pride. We used to work together in the men's tailoring department of English National Opera. Our cutter was Roxie who is one of my tailors interviewed on pages 11 & 12 in It's Not the Job, It's the Cabbage: The Lives of Tailors

The film opens in London on 12th September and features some old favourites like Bill Nighy and Imelda Staunton 

And do watch this film made in 1987 about the real events, featuring Jonathan as a young, handsome fund raiser and his partner Nigel compering their fund raiser with Bronski Beat (who apparently played at the party for the press opening last night)
