The Brighton School of Samba are seeking sequined, glamorous and fabulous Drag Queens to join their  ‘Ala Travesti’ (Transvestite group) on this years Pride Parade.

The Brighton School of Samba (GRES Cidade Brilhante) was formed in May 2007 as a non-profit organisation. Created in the traditional structure of the Rio Samba Schools, Cidade Brilhante is committed to community values and an inclusive policy. The School brings a taste of the vibrant Rio Carnival to the streets of Brighton for members, audiences and the wider community.

Colours chosen this year are navy, turquoise, gold and white. So as long as your outfit is suitably audacious and in keeping with their colours you can join them on the parade, strut your stuff and shimmy to the sizzling hot samba beats they will be playing!

If you want to be involved in their Pride parade as a non-performer, they’d love to hear from you too!

Help is needed with costume-making, stewarding and some cyclists’ pedal-power for the mobile PA system.

Beyond Pride 2013, if you would like to be a regular dancer with the Brighton School of Samba, go along to one of their dance workshops?

If you can’t dance, you can drum by joining their drumming workshops.
