Paul Kemp Director of Pride, said: “Dulcie Weaver and I are honoured to have received this award. 2015 was a massive year for Pride, celebrating 25 years of Pride in City. Not only was it one of the biggest celebrations the City has seen, but also brought many communities together to celebrate the diversity of Brighton and Hove.

“Pride only happens with the generous support of local businesses and national brands who sponsor Pride and help towards the costs of staging the biggest single event in our City.

“Thank you so much for this award, hope to see you all in 2016”
