  • Brighton Centre, Kings Road, Brighton

The UKS Biggest Pride Festival come back ! Quite simply the most spectacular, diverse, flamboyant and life affirming alfresco Festival. The UK’s leading Pride had something for everyone.

After positive community feedback on what was an exceptional and record-breaking year, Brighton Pride is delighted to announce the date for Pride weekend 2016 : Friday 5th – Sunday 7th August 2016. 

Brighton Pride will continue to celebrate with the hugely successful Carnival Of Diversity that perfectly reflects the diversity in our City.

Our 2016 campaigning theme is Uniting Nations, reflecting the UK’s favourite Pride festival’s on-going commitment to campaigning for global LGBT+ rights.

2015 was a record fundraising year with £100,000 raised for community good causes and 200,000 people enjoying the biggest community parade to date.

“Pride has evolved over the years with more communities coming together to celebrate every aspect of our city, regardless of sexuality, race, gender, age or ability. It’s important not to go back to theme’s that trivialise the important message behind the Pride Celebration and to highlight the lives and struggles of LGBT+ people across the world as we strive for equality for all”

Carnival Of Diversity will now remain as the main Parade theme, with Uniting Nations being the 2016 campaigning theme reflecting the wonderful diversity global communities with all the colour and vibrancy of Carnival.

It is a chance to celebrate the uniqueness of Brighton & Hove and the diversity and inclusivity of Pride in our City.

2016 Carnival of Diversity: Uniting Nations brings locals and visitors together once again for a Pride with purpose as we celebrate, connect, campaign and fundraise together in spectacular style.
