Brighton Pride 2015

THAT’S A quarter of a century of out and proud celebrations and visibility of our diverse LGBTI communities and the outstanding work done by our community groups.

To mark this important milestone, and in recognition of Brighton’s diverse and inspirational community, the theme for Pride in 2015 will be  ‘Carnival of diversity’.

With over 160,000 participants and spectators expected to attend and watch, the Brighton Pride Community Parade is a sensational celebration of every aspect of the LGBT community, its supporters and allies.

2015’s Carnival of Diversity will encompasses everything that has become iconic about the diverse, creative and open-minded community that makes Brighton internationally famous.

The community parade is the spectacle of the year and a chance for you to join with others in what is the liveliest, most colourful, uplifting and empowering visual showcase in the city.

Dulcie WeaverPride director Dulcie Weaver, said: The Pride Community Parade perfectly reflects the diversity of the city as organisations, businesses and community groups come together for a truly unique event.

“It’s essential that Pride continues to have campaigning message, so alongside the celebrations Pride will continue to highlight the plight of LGBT communities across the globe that are criminalised and denied the Freedom to Live.

“Thousands of people watch the parade every year and it is the best ‘shop window’ for community groups and business to get your message of support for Pride and the message of equality and diversity.

“As Pride celebrates it’s 25th Anniversary, there’s no better time to celebrate Pride in our City.”

For guidance of creative idea’s Pride participants will shortly be able to download a Parade briefing and attend creative workshops.

Parade entries will open early 2015 with discount for early entries.
