Brighton & Hove Pride has announced LGBTQ+ venue Legends will once again sponsor the Cabaret Big Top, which is the sequinned sensation at the heart of We Are Fabuloso in Preston Park, for Pride’s 30th Anniversary in August.
Hosted by Brighton Belle, Miss Lola Lasagne, the Legends Cabaret Big Top features a smorgasbord of the very best of the UK’s LGBTQ+ cabaret scene and is your first stop for a riotous celebration of queer, camp entertainment!
In a statement, Brighton & Hove Pride said: “Legends’ support for Brighton & Hove Pride is the epitome of Brighton’s community spirit and we are delighted that new team are continuing their support for our official fundraiser for the Brighton Rainbow Fund.
“From their financial support of the Legends Cabaret Big Top to their own fundraisers for the Brighton Rainbow Fund, Legends are perfect example of how a venue’s support can make a real difference.”
Paul Kemp, managing director of Brighton Pride CIC, said: “We are truly grateful for Legends’ continued support for Pride and the community as a whole, and wish the new team the very best of luck in this iconic venue. Huge thanks also go to Stephan Richards (AKA Lola) who always arranges a stellar line-up that makes the Cabaret Big Top one of the weekend’s top destinations.”
Erica Hann, co-director of Legends, added, “We firmly believe that who you love or how you identify should never be a barrier to opportunity. That’s why Legends is proud to continue the support of Brighton & Hove Pride – one of the UKs largest and most successful Pride festivals.”
Brighton & Hove Pride is the UK’s biggest Pride Festival operated by Brighton Pride CIC, a not for profit community interest company. All tickets revenue raised goes directly to the operational and running costs of producing the Pride Festival, LGBTQ+ Pride Community Parade, Pride Village Party and community fundraising for the Brighton Rainbow Fund and Pride Social Impact Fund.
Pride has raised over £946,000 for the Brighton Rainbow Fund, the Pride Social Impact Fund, Pride Cultural Development Fund and new Pride Solidarity Fund in the last six years. The Brighton Rainbow Fund has a remit to receive donations and to use them to give grants to LGBTQ+ and HIV groups and organisations in Brighton & Hove. The Pride Social Impact Fund benefits local good causes giving grants to a range of local groups.
