Pride - Questionable Censorship in the US

British Film About Gay Activists Gets Cover Change

Pride is a British film based on a true story from the 80's that is rooted in the gay/lesbian community. However, it appears that references to that background are not overly welcome in the plot description of the final US DVD.

On the website of CBS, the original is still online:

PRIDE is inspired by an extraordinary true story.  It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families.

On the backcover of the US DVD we can see an alternate version that omits the gays and lesbians:

PRIDE is inspired by an extraordinary true story.  It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group who decide to raise money to support the strikers’ families.

Also, the picture on the back was adjusted and a large banner in the background with the text "Lesbians & Gays support the Miners" has vanished. The "Gay" on the t-shirts stayed at least. Looks like the distributor is quite proud to release that film...
