If you would you like to perform on the main stage at Trans Pride Brighton 2018, or at the DIY night gig, then this is for you! This is a day dedicated to the empowerment of all trans, non-binary, intersex, gender-variant and gender-queer people, and an opportunity for you to take part in an event that makes a real difference.

 

Requirements for the main stage at the park are:

  • The performances will take place on Saturday 21st July 2018, in allocated slots between 1pm and 6pm.

  • For poetry and spoken word, the work should be a celebration of trans and gender identity.

  • Your work should show trans and gender identity in a positive light.

  • Cisgender artists are welcome to participate in partnership with trans artists (but the more trans members you have, the greater your chances to get on stage).

  • Local performers will be given preference and trans people from BAME (Black, Asian, and minority ethnic) communities will be given priority.

  • Pop (or mainstream music style) bands will be given preference on the day stage

  • All content for the day event in the park must be family friendly (i.e. no swearing, discussion of adult themes, or nudity).

Requirements for DIY Night Gig stage are:

  • The performances will take place on Saturday 21st July 2018, in allocated slots between 7pm and 11.30pm.

  • This is a DIY gig for “loud and proud” post-punk, metal and similar genre bands, where Trans content will be given preference – but anything goes, try us!

  • Local, unsigned bands will be given preference, with trans people from BAME (Black, Asian, and minority ethnic) communities given priority.

  • Cisgender artists are welcome to participate in partnership with trans artists (but the more trans members you have, the greater your chances to get on stage).
