Brighton Pride is proud to support the first ever Disability Pride in England, taking place in our wonderful city of Brighton & Hove on Sunday the 9th July 2017. Disability Pride will be a proud celebration of the disabled community with a day of performances including live music, street food, education, arts and comedy at the heart of our city.
An important milestone in the battle for acknowledgement and acceptance of those living with disability (visible or invisible) within Brighton and Hove’s community, Disability Pride has been organised by Jenny Skelton whose own daughter Charlie had suffered disability discrimination at a venue in the city during Brighton Pride 2016. Discrimination against the disabled is sadly still a reality for many in the community and Disability Pride aims to address the issue as we come together to support each other in a wonderfully positive way this July.
Jenny said “There has never been a Disability Pride event in England before and I am sure you will agree that there is nowhere better than Brighton to hold the very first one. We are excited to be running our event at the same time and date as Disability Pride New York City as well as a similar Disability Pride event in Switzerland and Italy.”
