The annual Pride Community Parade is the biggest and most exciting visual event in Brighton & Hove’s calendar bringing the whole community out on to the city’s streets as over 400,000 people participate and watch the spellbinding spectacular of our hugely successful “Carnival Of Diversity” as it winds it way through the city centre.
We are thrilled to announce that, in celebration of our 30th anniversary, the LGBTQ+ Community Parade theme for 2020 will be ‘Back To The Future’.
Building on last year’s ‘We Stand Together’ campaign, a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising that ignited the global Pride movement, and as a reaffirmation of our commitment to campaign for global LGBTQ+ equality, ‘Back To The Future’ will celebrate the pioneering activists of our past as well as looking to the Future and the continued strive for equality for LGBTQ+ people across the world.
The ‘Back To The Future’ theme encourages intergenerational conversation and a recognition of the heroes and icons that paved the way for the rights we have today, and we will continue to raise vital funds for our local LGBTQ+ and community projects.
This year there will be a judging panel of local creatives and dignitaries awarding prizes in categories such as Best Creative, Best Costumes, Best Use Of Recycled Materials, Best Global LGBTQ+ Theme.
Each year we are really excited to see some of the innovative and spectacular creations parade entrants come up with to interpret our theme and whilst on every other weekend of the year a feather boa and a rainbow wig might suffice, for Pride 2020 we are really hope that they pull out all the creative stops to ensure their group stands out and gets it message out. And there is also the prestige of their group could win its category.
