Brighton Trans, Non-Binary and Intersex Conference 2019 postponed

The Brighton Trans, Non-Binary & Intersex Conference, provisionally scheduled for July 18 and 19, 2019, will not go ahead this year.

IN the past, the conference has been facilitated by Brighton University, but earlier this year, it was put out to tender. The successful bidders were Trans Pride Brighton and Hove, who felt the conference was a key part of the Trans Pride season.

Unfortunately, due to health and personal issues with some of the Trans Pride committee and trustees, the difficult decision has been made to cancel the conference as organisers felt they did not have the capacity this year to allocate the amount of time and attention needed to deliver an international conference on this scale.

A spokesperson for Trans Pride, said: “We’ve had several health and personal issues and it is in the light of this that we’ve had to make the difficult decision to cancel the conference. We wanted to make sure that we could give it the time and attention it needs to make it a success, which given our current commitments, we can’t in good conscience do because we don’t have the capacity. We hope that the conference will be able to go ahead in future years and that this valuable resource can return for 2020.”

The Trans Pride march and main event takes place on Saturday, June 20, 2019.
