Pride in London
'Hesitation'
1 September 2020 1 min 58s
Public Prison
by Syd Briscoe

While avoiding crowded public places is something we've all become used to in 2020, many LGBT people have been doing so for much longer. The source of their anxiety isn't disease, but a fear of abuse, outing, or even homophobic violence.

That worry is delicately realised in this understated film for Pride in London, directed by Chris Fowles. The nuanced exchange between a couple is skilfully drawn, as what's left unsaid explains a lot more than the non-specific refusals to go out with friends do. It's a masterclass in show, don't tell.

Since the number of anti-LGBT hate crimes in Britain has soared over the past few years, and a relentlessly transphobic media has only fanned the flames of hatred, it's infinitely reasonable for people to worry about more than Covid-19 as the world opens back up. With any luck, Pride in London's campaign will assure them that they're not alone.
