THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ANDRÉ is a documentary about the life and career of US fashion editor André Leon Talley.

Sex

There are moderate sex references, including to sexual lifestyles in 1970s New York.

Language

There is moderate bad language ('whore').

Discrimination

In one scene, Talley recalls a woman referring to him as "Queen Kong", and adds "I was like an ape". He is also clearly distressed when talking about this. Talley also says that people saw him as "a black buck", and there are also references to the prejudices he experienced when growing up in the segregated American South.
