Event description

Description

This event is prioritised for Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic people who are LGBT+ and over 50 but if you do not fit these categories you can still attend as we would like this event to be inter generational so younger Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic people also have the opporunity to attend.

Join our sessional worker Rachael this month to watch a free film screening of 'There's Always a Black Issue Dear' with the opporunity for a Q&A afterwards with the filmmaker Claire Lawrie.

Through first person interviews and archive material the film shares stories of growing up Black and Queer in 1970s and 80s Britain. Navigating youth in this period of cultural and political turbulence the protagonists tackled things their own way. London’s alternative nightclub scene provided sanctuary even if only for a moment Forerunners and fiercely individual, these rare & vividly recounted memories tell of a singular determination and of resisting definition, through dance, art, fashion and music. The film acknowledges the importance of family, whether a parent or a group of like minded friends ‘you needed somewhere to go' where you felt good about yourself'...

You can watch a trailer of the film below:
