Brighton Pride

Brighton Pride will be a more sedate affair this year, with no parade and no big parties. But Pride month is still an important time to celebrate diversity and challenge inequality. And there’s still lots of fun things to do too!

Team RB wish you all a safe and happy Brighton Pride, however you celebrate it this year #loveislove.

You’ll find some great food and drink events taking place in August. From drag queens at the local to sparkly bottomless brunches and pride-themed drinks offers.

Ironworks Studios is a brand new Pride owned live performance space in the heart of the North Laine. Ironwork Studios have a jam-packed schedule of queer events, including local celebrities such as Alfie Ordinary and Boogaloo Stu, plays, cabarets, comedy and more. See more about Ironwork Studios Pride events.

The Pride carnival isn’t just about body glitter and a massive party. It’s one of the largest and most popular Pride events in Europe, and it’s a Pride with Purpose, raising £920,000 for community good causes in the past five years. That fundraising has been impacted with no Pride carnival for two years. So if you’d like to help support the cause, you can make a secure donation here. 

Every year local gin distillers Brighton Gin produce a limited edition design bottle to support LGBTQ+ and HIV charities through The Rainbow Trust. This year four bottles have been designed by local artist and founder of Brighton Trans Pride, Fox Fisher. The gins are released as a limited edition run of just 100 bottles per design and each one is signed by the artist with 9% of sales going to The Rainbow Trust. You can buy your Brighton Pride limited edition bottle of Brighton Gin online or from selected local retailers, Quaff and Good News.
