Brighton & Hove Pride prepares for 30th Anniversary
After two years of not being able to celebrate Pride in our city, normal service is being resumed for the summer of 2022. All your favourite main events are back on schedule, including the Pride Community Day & Dog Show, Pride LGBTQ+ Community Parade, the all-weekend Pride Village Party and the two-day official fundraiser for the Brighton Rainbow Fund, We Are Fabuloso supported by yahoo!
Pride Community Day & Dog show
Sun 24 July
The annual canine highlight where proud owners pamper their pooches, this is one of Brighton Pride’s most wonderfully accessible events. Get ready to celebrate our four-legged best friends with a day of fun and barking frolics, as dogs and dog lovers come together and shine.
Pride LGBTQ+ Community Parade
Sat 6 Aug
The Pride LGBTQ+ Community Parade is one of the undisputed highlights of the Brighton & Hove Pride weekend and is a glorious showcase of the city’s charities, community groups and small businesses as well as our invaluable emergency services, the NHS and statutory partners.
It stands as probably the biggest and brightest event on Brighton & Hove’s calendar, with over 300,000 people thronging the city’s streets to participate in and watch the parade of community and campaign groups, and the all-singing, all-dancing carnival of colour as it wends its way from Hove Lawns to Preston Park for We Are Fabuloso, the official Brighton & Hove Pride charity fundraiser.
Brighton & Hove Pride’s 30th anniversary has offered a perfect time to reaffirm their campaign commitments. Following consultation with community groups and activists, and to make the Pride LGBTQ+ Community Parade more diverse and inclusive for all, several changes have been made for 2022.
With community at its heart, and a theme of ‘LOVE · PROTEST · UNITY’ this incredible event will bring the city together to remember, to celebrate and to campaign.
Described by The Guardian as “the country’s most popular LGBT+ event,” WE ARE FABULOSO supported by yahoo! will run over two days with a main stage featuring world class artists including Christina Aguilera, Ella Henderson, Todrick Hall, Raye, Bimini and L Devine on Sat6th Aug, followed by Paloma Faith, Jake Shears, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Cat Burns and Björn Again on Sun 7 Aug.
Featuring over 100 LGBTQ+ artists, other areas of the park will see the return of the Gaydio Dance Tent headlined by Gorgon City, the Legends Cabaret Big Top with it’s always legendary line-up, the QTIPOC Stage hosted by The Cocoa Butter Club, the DIVA Dance Tent, the Brüt Dance tent and a host of other tents, cabaret stages, amazing live music and community areas to create a festival that celebrates the diversity of our community and delivers an unforgettable Pride experience.
Pride Village Party
Sat 6 – Sun 7 Aug
The Pride Village Party in Brighton’s famous Kemptown sees businesses across St James Street and Marine Parade come together to celebrate Pride, and raise extra funds for the Brighton Rainbow Fund and Pride Social Impact Fund.
Brighton & Hove Pride is the UK’s biggest Pride Festival, and operated by a not for profit community organisation. It has raised over £936,000 for the Brighton Rainbow Fund, Pride Cultural Development Fund and Pride Social Impact Fund in the last seven years.
