Partners

Our Partners share many things in common. Most importantly we share a passion for Brighton Pride and it’s ethos of equality and the celebration of diversity.

Brighton Pride CIC relies on sponsorship revenues to help fund our events that fundraise for the Rainbow Fund for whom we have raised over £705,000 in the last six years.

The range of Brighton Pride events offer brands and corporate partners excellent opportunities to support the LGBTQ community but to also reach and target engaged consumers in large numbers across multiple platforms. We can deliver varied campaigns for brands with different objectives that include sampling, engagement, branding, direct response and even direct sales. We offer campaigns that can run all year long or focus activity during the Festival weekend.

Our dedicated commercial partnership team will work with prospective partners and their agencies to deliver with our wealth of experience of working with everyone from major financial brands like American Express, to travel companies like Virgin Holidays, large consumer companies like Unilever or local businesses, ensuring the team provide the best possible return on investment for partners of all sizes.

Opportunities are available at all investment levels including headline partner, premium partner and partner levels. We offer set packages or we can create bespoke offers.

Brighton Pride was a day to remember. We were overwhelmed by the hundreds of thousands of people that turned out to watch the parade and the joyous almost carnival-like

Mark Anderson,Managing Director, Virgin Holidays

Our involvement in Brighton Pride was something that was very important to me to do and to get right, both professionally and personally. I firmly believed it was the right thing for the business to do and I, especially, wanted to support Brighton Pride as I understood how well it was perceived by the LGBT and local community having been so many times before. So I guess it was a bit of a leap of faith. But you and the team have been incredibly supportive with good advice and suggestions, and as a result, this was a fantastic thing for us to have done. We have had unparalleled feedback, engagement and coverage.

“We are really excited to be continuing our support of Brighton & Hove Pride and look forward to what will be a spectacular showcase that really celebrates the diversity of the city.
“As a Brighton employer it is great to be able to support a local event that so many of our employees and their families enjoy and take part in.”

Simon MarkeyChief Executive, OneFamily

We’re big supporters of Pride in our City. It brings so much energy and vibrancy to the city, and always attracts a great crowd. Not only are we happy to assist with transport provisions but we’re delighted to join in with the celebrations and that our Pride Bus can help promote such a fantastic festival

Martin HarrisManaging Director, Brighton & Hove Buses.

Following the success of last year’s Pride, Gatwick Airport was once again pleased to be partnering with Brighton Pride in 2016 for what was another wonderful celebration. Gatwick enjoys close links with the Brighton community and has been a strong supporter of Brighton Pride. With Gatwick just 30 minutes away by rail, we look forward to welcoming many of the international visitors who will once again be flying in to Gatwick from the more than 220 destinations Gatwick serves and continuing our ongoing association.

This year marks the 11th year that our colleagues will participate in the Community Pride Parade. At American Express we have a long-standing commitment to building a diverse workforce and inclusive workplace where all colleagues can thrive. We’re looking forward to being part of what promises to be another spectacular and colourful showcase of the city’s diverse community.”
