The Pride Community Parade theme will remain Carnival Of Diversity with Uniting Nations being the 2016 campaigning theme reflecting the wonderful diversity global communities and Pride’s on-going commitment to campaigning for global LGBT+ rights.
“Pride has evolved over the years with more communities coming together to celebrate every aspect of our city, regardless of sexuality, race, gender, age or ability. It’s important not to go back to themes that trivialise the important message behind the Pride Celebration and to highlight the lives and struggles of LGBT+ people across the world as we strive for equality for all”
2015 was a record fundraising year for Brighton Pride with £100,000 raised for community good causes and 200,000 people enjoying the biggest community parade to date.
