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 theBrighton Rainbow Fund for whom we have raised over £1,236,000 in the last seven 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.

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.

Pride marks a significant event in the calendar for me and many of the global LGBTQ+ community. Pride Month is an opportunity to celebrate LGBTQ+ communities around the world, showing how far we’ve come by bringing people together in friendship and love, whilst acknowledging there is still work to be done. This year, I’m proud that Delta and Virgin Atlantic are part of Brighton Pride; an event that is all about championing diversity and celebrating our differences, acknowledging that we should all feel proud of who we are, no matter how we identify or who we love.

“Brighton & Hove Pride is the anchor for all the campaigning, celebrating and fundraising that has happened over the last 30 years. I feel it’s important to see this year as an opportunity to reflect and applaud everything that Pride has achieved, the inequalities that it highlights and still fights to overcome.
OneFamily is an active supporter of Brighton & Hove Pride and the community projects it funds. It means a lot to us to be a part of something so important and we’re proud to have been involved for many years.
We might be socially distanced but now is definitely the time to get up, join in and make some noise. In fact, I think we have a duty to celebrate Pride this year – as loudly, proudly and as colourfully as we can!”

Teddy NyahashaCEO, OneFamily

Pride is always one of the most exciting and important events of the year. We’re delighted to once again partner with Pride, and be part of City Angels, so that everyone can move smoothly and safely around the city and get the most out of their weekend. Happy Pride, everyone.

Brighton Pride is one of the highlights of our calendar each year, and we’re always incredibly proud to stand in support of our LGBTQ+ community – it’s truly a time to celebrate diversity, and the strength of being yourself. We’re delighted to be able to play our part, as Tesco is here to serve the Great British Public, in all its wonderfully diverse glory.
