Putting campaigning at the forefront of Pride, this week also saw the launch of our 2019 campaign #WeStandTogether, a call to action for all in the LGBTQ+ community and our allies to stand up to all types of discrimination as we celebrate Pride and the advances in equality and inclusion over the last 5 decades.
#WeStandTogether confirms Brighton & Hove Pride’s commitment to raising awareness of intersectionality, the overlapping of social identities and how discrimination against one ultimately represents discrimination against all.
Look out for the street banner campaign across the City from 22nd July.

Through the Brighton Rainbow Fund we have been able to support the Rainbow Hub and Community Safety Forum on their shared premises in Kemptown which provides a safe space for individuals in the LGBTQ+ community seeking up to date help, information or guidance.
A third of black, Asian and minority ethnic LGBT people (34 per cent) have experienced a hate crime or incident based on being LGBT in the last year, compared to one in five white LGBT people (20 per cent).
