Brighton Pride History
Brighton and Hove Pride started in October 1972 with a gay demonstration by the Sussex Gay Liberation Front. In July 1973, there was the first full Pride march in Brighton.
After this, Pride returned to the city in 1991 with a weekend’s worth of events that brought hundreds of people to the streets of the town.
Another significant milestone for Brighton Pride was its relocation to Preston Park in 1996.
In 2002, Brighton and Hove Pride agreed to include references to the transgender community, making this Pride celebration an event for the full LGBT community for the first time.
From fighting for important issues to celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community, since its founding back in 1972, Brighton Pride has been a place for people of all sexualities to come together and celebrate their differences.
