Are you an ally with BSL interpretation or live captioning skills? We want to hear from you!

Volunteering Opportunities

Trans Pride Brighton will be taking place online on Saturday 17th July 2021, a day that is dedicated to the empowerment of all trans, intersex and gender variant people.

Last year saw the first ever Trans Pride Brighton online event, with over a dozen trans, non-binary and intersex musicians and spoken word artists performing to an audience of over 10,000 viewers throughout the day. And this year will be even bigger and better!

We are looking for cisgender allies with experience in BSL interpretation or live captioning / stenography to contribute to this exciting and inclusive event. If you are a professional in these industries we would be happy to list your organisation or company as a supporter of the event.

More information about the volunteer roles is available below. If you’re interested in volunteering or have any questions please drop us an email at [email protected].

BSL volunteers

BSL volunteers provide live interpretation during the online stream. Your interpretation will be included as an overlay on the stream broadcast.

Content to be interpreted will include:

  • live and pre-recorded musical / spoken word performances, with lyrics or transcripts provided in advance.
  • any other pre-recorded content, with transcripts provided in advance.
  • live commentary from the stream hosts in between performances.
  • any other live content.

Depending on safety guidelines and your availability, interpretation can either be done on location in Brighton or from your own home.

Caption volunteers

Caption volunteers provide live captions during the online stream.

Content to be live captioned will include:

  • live musical / spoken word performances, with lyrics provided in advance.
  • live commentary from the stream hosts in between performances.
  • any other live content.

Pre-recorded content will have captions prepared in advance, so will not need to be live captioned.

Depending on safety guidelines and your availability, live captioning can either be done on location in Brighton or from your own home.
