Brighton & Hove Pride 2021 – UPDATE
Tues 04 August 2021
As we approach what would have been Pride weekend, we are devastated that we cannot put on the spectacular Pride festival and celebrations we had planned, and advocate that the need for community has never been stronger.
Although for many Pride is a celebration, for us Pride has its roots in protest and campaigning, and as our hard fought for LGBTQ+ human rights are slowly being rolled back in parts of the world and more anti-LGBT discriminatory legislation introduced, it is essential we come together to demand full equality and decriminalisation of LGBTQ+ people worldwide.
We recognise the huge impact the pandemic has had on all local businesses and if you are out in the city this weekend would ask you to support our LGBTQ+ venues that are there for you all year round, many of whom are fundraising for The Brighton Rainbow Fund and other essential local charities.
We would like to thank everyone who has purchased a Pride ticket for their understanding and support, and we can’t wait to bring Pride back in 2022 better than ever, celebrating and campaigning for LGBTQ+ communities and rights around the world.
