The Trans Community Area curated by Alice Denny returns to Pride Festival

By 10th May 2016 No Comments

An integral part of the Pride Community Village, The Pride Trans Community Area is a community lead initiative created from a working party of local community members and representatives of local Trans organisations.

Supported fully by Brighton & Hove Pride, the Pride Trans Community Area will be a celebratory and welcoming space, providing key information, points of reference and entertainment for and by Brighton & Hove’s wonderful Trans community.

After it’s sparklingly positive debut last year, the Pride Trans Community Area will once again be curated by local poet Alice Denny and is set to host a dazzling variety of live performances throughout the day. A truly joyous addition to the Pride Festival in Preston Park in 2015, Brighton Pride are delighted to welcome the Trans Pride tent back to our 2016 Carnival of Diversity as Pride continues to place the trans community at the heart of our city’s proud celebrations.

Alice Denney said: “I am chuffed and delighted to be involved in creating a Trans presence and safer space at Pride this year. I think all the hard work done by so many people last year involved plus the lessons learned from the very first event will make The Trans Community Area even more visible, welcoming and entertaining this time”.
