CGiii Comment

Sometimes...words [utterly] fail. 

If ever there was a 'documentary' made...that would make you feel embarrassed to be a member of the LGBT community...then, this is it!

Rather than offend...by [easily] ripping this apart...we shall resist and desist.

All we say is...drama queens do not make good activists. And, anti-semitic, transphobes should not be given - despite their faux apology - any [atoning] airtime whatsoever.

An ill-conceived, badly-managed, snowflake-drenched, more-cringe-than-worthy, vanity project.

Opening with the anti-LGBTIQ+ lessons protests in Birmingham, Pride & Protest refuses to shy away from the many issues faced by Britain’s LGBTIQ+ black and people of colour communities. We follow several activists during their day-to-day lives as they fight to hold onto their pride in a racist and homophobic society. Building up their profile, they speak out at Pride events and panels to push back against internalised shame and lack of representation. We also look into the lives of various queer folk – some more controversial than others – in the build-up to UK Black Pride, as they try to figure their place within the QTIPOC communities in the UK. Tackling issues from the politics of desire, self-care and found family, this documentary will leave you with much to debate.
