BEYOND 'THERE'S ALWAYS A BLACK ISSUE DEAR' is a documentary short about the black LGBTQ experience in 1980s and '90s Britain.

Injury detail

There is strong language ('f**k'), as well as uses of 'bloody' and 'arse'.

Interviews with LGBTQ black people feature frequent verbal references to their experiences of historical racism, homophobia and transphobia, including aggressive and violent racism. Discriminatory terms include 'nigger', 'wog', 'poof' and 'batty man'. The film does not endorse discriminatory behaviour. A brief reference to suicide occurs when a man talks about the loneliness of being both black and gay as a teenager in the 80s and says that he believed at the time that the only way out was to kill himself. There are verbal references to people in a club smoking marijuana.
