Pride month may be over, but one of the UK’s most popular pride events is set to take place this month – Brighton and Hove Pride.

Celebrating the LGBTQ+ community, the event is the first since 2019 after being canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And it’s set to be a big one as the event celebrates its 30th anniversary with the theme ‘Love, Protest, and Union’.

The annual event aims to eliminate all forms of discrimination against LGBTQ+ communities and raises funds each year for the Rainbow Fund and Pride social impact fund.

The celebration includes the eagerly-anticipated pride parade as well as a line-up of entertainment, with previous acts including the likes of Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Dua Lipa, and more.
