PRIDE 2021 IS GOING TO BE FABULOSO !
PARADE THEME ‘OVER THE RAINBOW’ WILL CELEBRATE THE NHS, KEY WORKERS AND OUR LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY ORGANISTIONS
After the devastating decision to postpone this year’s celebrations, Brighton & Hove Pride are proud and excited to announce the new theme for next year’s LGBTQ+ Community Parade will be OVER THE RAINBOW, a fantastic and fabulous celebration of the heroes that have kept us safe through these difficult times.
On Saturday 7th August 2021, the Parade will highlight the terrific work and sacrifice made by NHS and key frontline workers as well as the essential community organisations that provide so much support throughout the year. It will also be a special year for Brighton & Hove Pride, as we will celebrate thirty years of campaigning, protest and a celebration of diversity in our great city.
Paul Kemp, Director of Brighton & Hove Pride said; “The Pride Parade has always been such a vibrant and colourful event that brings our communities together to celebrate diversity, inclusion and our unique city. Over the Rainbow celebrates the hope, spirit and unity of all our communities and we sincerely hope that Pride 2021 will be a time for everyone to come back together to celebrate our communities, amazing NHS Staff and key workers.”
The annual Pride LGBTQ+ Community Parade features an array of city charities, community groups, local businesses, blue light services and official Brighton & Hove Pride partners. This free and much loved, colourful carnival of diversity will kick start Saturday’s festivities and lead the way to our main community fundraising event Fabuloso – Pride in the Park on Preston Park taking place on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th August 2021.
Brighton & Hove Pride is a time to come together to celebrate and embrace diversity and inclusion in our great city. Our sole ethos is to promote respect within our community and support local charities and causes through fundraising. In the last six years we have raised over £920,000 for neighbouring charities, projects and community groups, distributed through The Brighton Rainbow Fund, Pride Social Impact Fund and The Pride Cultural Development Fund.
