Once A Year on Blackpool Sands is a triumphant, comedy-drama based on real events, regarding an extraordinary night in Blackpool 1953, several days after the Queen's Coronation. Tommy and Eddy (Macaulay Cooper and Kyle Brooks) are coal miners and secret gay lovers who spend their holiday at a quirky bed and breakfast in Blackpool, along with a few other "alternative" members of society. Together, they summon up the courage to do the first fabled walk towards Gay Pride. Written and directed by Karlton Parris, this true story offers a rare glimpse into an underrepresented era in LGBTQ history. Touching and poignant, Once a Year on Blackpool Sands offers up a portrayal of the lives of working-class gay men and the women who supported them, in a time when homosexuality was a crime.

This video was cheaply produced. Very bad quality video. The accents are hard to understand for an American audience. No subtitles in American English Available. I would Not recommend even renting this DVD.
