About Trans Pride Brighton

Five Years

Trans Pride Brighton has been running since 2013 and providing a great day where trans people, friends, allies and family can meet and have an amazing time in a fun and safe space. This year was our fifth anniversary and we really celebrated!

Trans Pride Brighton and Hove is a registered charity in England & Wales (number 1162738). We are a grass-roots, community-led organisation staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers.

By promoting equality and diversity through visibility, we will educate and eliminate discrimination we face, and also to celebrate our unique history and gender diversity.

Trans Pride Brighton, now in its 5th year, had an amazing array of events in July.

As a registered charity run solely by volunteers, Trans Pride aim to inspire all trans, intersex, gender variant and queer people to help make a real difference by celebrating trans lives and gender diversity.

The Day In Pictures

 

Saturday 22nd July 2017, 12pm – Trans Pride Brighton, the largest celebration of trans, intersex and gender non-conforming people, started the day with a huge crowd of 2500 people all gathering at the Marlborough ready to join the official Protest March.

The march went peacefully along the seafront waving banners and chanting ‘Trans Rights are Human Rights’ before ending at Brunswick Square to join the events, community stalls, stage performers and caterers for the afternoon Main Park Event

The rain came at about 3pm, but didn’t deter everyone. The day carried on with the wonderful speakers, performers and the main band playing until the end. The nearly sold-out evening celebrations at the DIY gig and Tramfrau After Party ran until the late hours.
