Brighton Pride takes place from 5-7 August 2016. The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community event has become the UK’s biggest Pride festival with nearly 300,000 people participating in the celebrations across the city last year.

This year’s event, themed ‘Carnival of Diversity: Uniting Nations’ is expected to a attract huge numbers of participants, spectators and visitors from across Sussex and further afield for what according to Tourism South East is the biggest event and tourist attraction in Brighton. MW Solicitors employees will be participating in the Community Pride Parade in an open top bus this year and have a community stand in the Park.

MW Solicitors is a proud supporter of the LGBT community across its network which includes branches in Brighton, Hove and Worthing.  MW Solicitors ranks as one of the best law firms in the UK for its diversity practices especially with regard to the diversity of its own workforce.  Our employees represent the best of the communities they live and work in and we offer expert legal services to those who live and work in those communities who require our assistance.

MW Solicitors Chief Information Officer and LGBT Officer David Fazakerley stated “MW Solicitors is Proud to continue its support of the Brighton Pride Festival and LGBT Community this year as we did last year and to support the organisation with its legal needs.”

Last year’s Brighton Pride Festival raised a record breaking £100,000 for LGBT and HIV organisations and good causes across Sussex. Beneficiaries included Allsorts Youth Project, Lunch Positive, LGBT Community Safety Forum, MindOut, Peer Action and Clare Project.

Paul Kemp, Brighton Pride Community Interest Company, said: “Brighton 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. We are delighted that MW Solicitors are supporting the event once again as they provide crucial legal services and advice to the organisation.”
