On July 23rd 2016 the annual Trans Pride in Brighton took place. This year it was bigger than ever with a total of 4500 people attending to the main event. The Protest march took place along the seafront this year and ended up in Brunswick Square.
The stage made a return this year complete with live music, poetry, speeches and more on the stage,this year the entertainment was hosted by the wonderful Romario Wanliss and Emma Frankland. Music from Tilly Braiance, Taylor Lucas, Ren, Screaming Toenail, the Chemtrails and Squid & the Krakens. Poetry was also provided from Dae Fletcher, Connor Byrne and Alice Denny.
This year the main event in the park was also bigger than ever. There were lots of stalls available this year representing local and national support groups youth support, relationship support, unions, local services, health & well-being and activism.
As always the atmosphere was amazing, a very welcoming accepting place. If you happen to be looking for a good place to have your first full day out presenting as you next year in the summer, I would highly recommend Trans Pride Brighton as that location. It was an amazing day and I for one cannot wait until next year.
