It’s time for a glorious Summer Of Love in 2017 as Brighton Pride celebrates the landmark fiftieth anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales with a life affirming Carnival Of Diversity and spectacular weekend long Pride Festival.

Brighton Pride’s 2017 Summer Of Love will be a stunning celebration of our LGBT+ community and supporters, bringing together the best of Brighton & Hove under a giant rainbow flag. A festival like no other, a campaign to inspire, a party to remember and a fundraising weekend to be proud of, Brighton Pride’s Summer Of Love will be the most spectacular Pride event of 2017, filled with joy, love, and pride.

The Brighton Pride Festival on Preston Park on Saturday 5th August 2017 is a glittering and truly inclusive community celebration that delivers an unforgettable day of Pride. A unique community fundraising event, the Brighton Pride Festival has enjoyed amazing performances from international stars including Sister Sledge, Carly Rae Jepsen, Fatboy Slim, The Human League, Fleur East, Alesha Dixon, Ella Henderson, Boy George, Alison Moyet, Paloma Faith, and Ms Dynamite amongst others.

Described by The Guardian as “the country’s most popular LGBT event” the Brighton Pride Festival is a vibrant celebration of all that is wonderful about Brighton & Hove’s diverse community, with visitors from across the globe enjoying its spectacular celebrations.

The 2017 Brighton Pride Community Parade on Saturday 5th August 2017 is a Carnival Of Diversity, an opportunity to reflect the fabulously diverse and unique communities whom we are lucky enough to share our city with. Forever surprising, always engaging and constantly educating, 2017’s Carnival Of Diversity will fill Brighton & Hove’s streets with love, light and laughter as the colour and cohesion of our communities combine to create a explosion of life-affirming brilliance throughout the Brighton Pride Community Parade.

Not just a time to party, the Pride Festival and Parade are a chance for us to come together as a community to declare our unity as we continue to face the challenges by those around the world who would take the LGBT+ community back to the days before decriminalisation and equality. Together we can keep moving forward, celebrating, campaigning and connecting with Pride.

Join us in August 2017 for Brighton Pride’s Summer Of Love and our sensational Carnival Of Diversity and help us declare, fifty years on from the decriminalisation of homosexuality, love wins.
