Are You Proud? ★★★

As well as asking us to be self-critical and reflect inwardly on our relationships to Pride and our identities, Joiner’s documentary reminds us that we do have so much to be proud of. Jubilant scenes from UK Black Pride and London’s Queer Picnic show that marginalised people can come together and celebrate Pride in their own inclusive way, rather than have pinkwashed consumerism drown out their voices. Are You Proud?, much like these events, is sincerely representative of the values of Pride: remembering who we are, where we came from, and how far we still have to go.
