Brighton Pride 2022

Christina Aguilera confirmed as Saturday headliner at Brighton Pride 2022

This year’s Brighton & Hove Pride is hotting up to be a scorcher with Global Superstar Christina Aguilera confirmed to headline the Saturday!
Legendary pop icon Christina Aguilera has been announced as the headline act for the 30th anniversary Brighton & Hove Pride celebrations on Saturday 6th August.

Hot on the heels of receiving the Music Icon Award at 2021 People’s Choice Awards, the Grammy Award-winning superstar will perform a Pride exclusive show at Brighton & Hove Pride.

Christina has been a long-time ally of the LGBTQ+ community. From helping raise funds in the fight against HIV/AIDS to advocating for marriage equality and speaking out against anti-LGBTQ bullying, she consistently uses her global superstar platform to share a message of hope and inspiration to those who have been marginalized simply because of who they are.

In 2019 the six-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter was the recipient of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Ally for Equality Award and in a 2017 special love letter to the LGBTQ community, Aguilera said, “The LGBTQ community has never had it easy, the struggles each one of you faces daily on an individual level and on a broader political and cultural level are unimaginable, yet you keep fighting, you keep moving forward trailblazing and beating all odds with love always in your hearts.”

Paul Kemp, Director of Brighton Pride said,
“As we celebrate our (delayed) 30th anniversary, we are really thrilled to have secured an iconic star and LGBTQ+ ally such as Christina Aguilera to perform at the Preston Park Pride festival, our main fundraiser for the Brighton Rainbow Fund. It’s going to be ‘Beautiful’.”

Paloma Faith is also confirmed as headliner on Sunday 7th August for We Are Fabuloso, Brighton & Hove Pride’s official fundraiser for the Brighton Rainbow Fund.
In 2020 she was the recipient of the Attitude Honorary Gay Award commenting, “I’m absolutely thrilled… [The LGBTQ community] just feels like my community. From school age, I’ve had friends who are gay men or girls who aren’t particularly bothered about labelling their sexuality; that’s how I’ve grown up. It’s something that’s part of who I am.

“When I hear homophobia, I take it personally. It feels like I’m defending myself.”

Paloma is also not afraid to use her status as a public figure for good and, as an outspoken feminist, has spoken out on gender inequality in the media and music industry. She also revealed that she refers to her baby as “they” as she raises it in a gender-neutral environment away from what she believes as the harmful effects of “celebrity culture”.

We Are Fabuloso is the UK’s biggest LGBTQ+ Pride event with community fundraising at its heart.
