Trans Pride Brighton need your help! This year was our 5th anniversary and we need help to make next year another amazing event.

How do we run Trans Pride Brighton year on year and make it such a great event?
How do we ensure it continues in the spirit of what all Prides ought to be?

  • corporate-free
  • non-hostile
  • safe
  • inclusive

You may not know, but last year we ran at a loss. We cannot afford to do that again this year. So we are asking for you final push so we can make the figures add up.

Please help us by donating any amount – even a couple of quid will do! Without your ongoing support this event would not be happening. Remember, this is your event, your community, YOUR PRIDE.
