Beyond 'There's always a black issue Dear'

© Claire Lawrie

Beyond ‘There’s always a black issue Dear’ explores and celebrates black LGBTQ identities and the influence that black LGBTQ culture has had upon fashion, fine art, dance, music and language - much of which has been appropriated by the cultural mainstream. The trailblazing cast vividly recall daring to be different as ballet dancing boys and make-up wearing, gender-fluid school days are described with humour and honesty. Their experiences shed new light on the UK in the 1970s and 80s and provide a snapshot of this vital historical period. The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion, chaired by Digital Curator Foteini Aravani. Panellists include Claire Lawrie (Film director) and Priscilla Igwe (Director of The New Black Film Collective)
