The Pride Community Parade 2017 ‘Carnival of Diversity – Summer of Love’ celebrates the landmark 50th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales

The annual Brighton Pride Community Parade is the biggest and most exciting visual event in Brighton & Hove’s calendar bringing the whole community out on to the city’s streets as over 200,000 people participate and watch the spellbinding spectacular of our hugely successful ‘Carnival Of Diversity‘.
This year’s Summer Of Love Community Parade, supported by Gatwick Airport, will be the most spectacular UK Pride event of 2017, a festival like no other, a campaign to inspire, a party to remember and a fundraising weekend to be proud of.
Previous participants have included Brighton Pride’s partners and sponsors, American Express, Net Natives and One Family, local community groups, representatives from political parties and faith groups, the NHS, the blue light services – Police, Fire and Ambulance, the Girl Guides, Scouts, trade unions, as well as major corporate brands such as Virgin Holidays showing their support for diversity, and a sensational selection of dancers, performers, musicians and artists.
Over the past 4 years Pride has raised £310,000 for the Rainbow Fund and local good causes.
