The Pride Community Parade 2020 is not yet on sale. Please register your interest here.

The Pride LGBTQ+ Community Parade is one of the undisputed highlights of the Brighton & Hove Pride Festival weekend and is a glorious showcase of the city’s charities, community groups and small businesses as well as our invaluable blue light services and statutory partners. It is one of the biggest and brightest events in Brighton & Hove’s events calendar, with over 300,000 people pouring out onto the city’s streets to participate in and watch on as an all-singing, all-dancing carnival of colour wends its way from the Hove Lawns to the main Pride festival site.

In 2019 we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Inn uprising that ignited the Pride movement with our theme ‘Generations of Love – Celebrating 50 years of campaigning with Pride’.

We will continue to put campaigning for global LGBTQ+ rights at the front of our parade highlighting diversity and inclusion with representatives of BAME and trans communities and the fabulous Prancing Elites, a black male dance troupe from Alabama. Our campaign placards this year will feature LGBTQ Heroes who have devoted their lives, passion and energies to advancing our global LGBTQ+ rights.

Every year, participants include Brighton & Hove Pride’s partners and sponsors, local community groups, representatives from political parties and faith groups, the NHS, Brighton Housing Trust, Sussex Police, East Sussex Fire & Rescue, the Girl Guides, trade unions, and a number of major brands showing their support for diversity, alongside a selection of performers, musicians and artists.

Flamboyant, vibrant and colourful, the Brighton & Hove Pride Community Parade is a show-stopping spectacle not to be missed. With this year being the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising that ignited the Pride movement the parade promises to take on this uniquely global message – translated into an array of eye-popping technicolour magic, look out for our 50m Rainbow Flag the symbol of pride. So, be sure to find yourself a good spot on the packed pavements from which to watch as the spectacle goes by. In addition to the music, floats, bands, costumes and dancing – the parade will carry the message of love, unity, and support for the worldwide LGBTQ+ community that is at the heart of everything that Brighton & Hove Pride stands for.
