August events: Brighton Pride

Brighton & Hove, East Sussex

At Brighton Pride you can enjoy a risqué drag act, dance till your heart’s content and eat fish ‘n’ chips by the sea all in the same day.

Brighton Pride needs no introduction. Every year this coastal town is painted all the colours of the rainbow as thousands flock here to promote LGBTQ+ equality and celebrate its unique culture. If nothing else, Brighton Pride is about the freedom to express yourself, so don’t be surprised if some festival-goers take this to the extreme at the Horse Meat Disco.

Generally, this is not the place to play shy, especially if you find yourself front row in the Legends Cabaret Tent during one of their ferocious drag acts. Of course, the best demonstration of this community’s pride in its individuality is the Parade itself, when the streets become a sea of colour and character. Even if you’re not actually taking part, it’s well worth a watch.
