One of the UK’s biggest pride events is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Brighton Pride was back on the streets of the south-coast city on Saturday, after being cancelled for the last two years due to Covid.
A large parade set off from Hove Lawns at 11:00 BST weaving its way through the streets of the city. Global superstar Christina Aguilera is the headline act at a concert on Saturday evening, with Paloma Faith headlining on Sunday.
A Brighton Pride spokesperson said: “2022 will be a joyous commemoration of the brave trailblazers, campaigners and supporters who shaped the Pride movement in the city and helped us achieve the LGBT+ equality we all enjoy today.” The first Brighton Pride was held in 1973 but it did not return to the city again until 1991. The event usually attracts crowds of about 250,000 people.https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-sussex-62441276
