Brighton Pride are excited to announce global superstar Mariah Carey to headline Pride in the Park
The singer, who has had 19 number one singles and sold more than 200 million albums, will play Pride in the Park on Saturday 1 August.
The three-day event runs from 31 July to 2 August. On Sunday, The Pussycat Dolls – who recently reformed – are the headline act for Sunday’s event.
Chris Jepson, from the festival, said Mariah was “a huge LGBTQ+ ally, Mariah is truly the template of the modern pop performer and will perform at the two-day FABULOSO Pride in the Park on Saturday 1st August and we are delighted that this performance will mark the first time they have ever performed at a Pride event in the world.”
“We are beyond thrilled that Mariah is joining our LGBTQ+ celebrations for our 30th anniversary.
Mariah is a staunch LGBTQ+ ally and having her perform at Pride really helps us highlight our campaigning for LGBTQ+ equality to a global audience.
Mariah is headlining the main stage but there are loads more artist announcements to come. Watch this space for more great LGBTQ+ performers and allies over the coming weeks.”
2020 is the 30th anniversary of Brighton & Hove Pride culminating in a weekend of campaigning, celebrating and fundraising for LGBTQ+ and community projects in Brighton & Hove over 1st & 2ndAugust 2020.
Pride is a celebration of how far we have come but it is also an ongoing campaign for those marginalised communities at home and abroad who still suffer persecution on a daily basis. Our fundraising events will ensure that we continue to raise vital funds for our local LGBTQ+ and community projects.”
