Brighton Station Manager Graham Thrower said:“There is a real feeling of anticipation at the station. Staff have been working hard behind the scenes to get ready, and will be joining in by dressing up and wearing glitter. We’re looking forward to a fantastic weekend and wish all our passengers a happy and safe Pride.”
GTR’s diversity champion and Operations Learning Manager Polly McGillivray will be celebrating at the festival.
She added:”Pride is such an important celebration. Personally, I have been very fortunate to be working with a company that wants to celebrate diversity with its employees and the LGBTQ+ community and understands the importance of Pride.”’
Paul Kemp of Brighton & Hove Pride CIC said:“We are expecting record numbers of people travelling from all over the UK and from around the world to attend Brighton & Hove Pride this year and we thank GTR for their work to support Pride and for their preparations to ensure everyone attending Brighton Pride can get in and out of the city with the minimum of disruption.”
