Brighton Pride’s first ever ‘Ambassador’ has been chosen to march at the front of this year’s community parade.

Danny Dwyer, the organiser of Bear- Patrol, received the most nominations in the first selection round. Bear-Patrol is a social networking group for bears and their friends and in the short time they have existed have raised close to £50,000 for the Sussex Beacon and local good causes.

Pride’s second Ambassador will be announced in the June Gscene.

• Do you know someone in Brighton who volunteers for an LGBT or HIV organisation, donating their time to helping others?

• Do you know someone in Brighton who has made a difference to the lives of local LGBT people?

• Is there someone you are proud of who makes a fantastic contribution to the local LGBT community?

Now is your opportunity to say ‘thank you’ and acknowledge the contribution these quiet heroes make to ‘Gay Brighton’.
