As the city and LGBTQ+ communities reel from the announcements over the last few days affecting key community events and milestones in our LGBTQ+ lives it was announced that Trans Pride Brighton 2020 is cancelled.
This message from the Trans Pride Brighton Committee was released this morning.
‘It is with great sadness that we must announce that due to the COVID-19 situation the committee has made the decision to cancel Trans Pride Brighton 2020.
Members of our trans, non-binary and intersex community are often vulnerable and can have health issues that would put them at more risk from COVID-19 and with this in mind, we must all act as a community to protect every one.
Even though Trans Pride Brighton is still months away, we feel that making the decision to cancel early will allow people to alter their plans.
The whole committee is dedicated to making Trans Pride Brighton 2021 happen and we will use the time to focus on how best to support our community.
We appreciate your understanding.
Until next year. ‘
