                   ANNUAL REVIEW OF 2018
Brighton & Hove Pride - THE UK'S BIGGEST PRIDE FESTIVAL ANNUAL REVIEW OF 2018 - "Historic, inspired and unparalleled - Tickets for Brighton Pride
Firmly established as the UK’s biggest Pride Festival, Brighton Pride attracts a diverse demographic
audience from across the UK, Europe and the World.

2018 continued to see Brighton Pride’s reputation as one of the UK’s leading campaigning
and community fundraising Prides grow. Supporting our local charities and good causes is the
cornerstone of our Pride – a ‘Pride with Purpose’ – and in 2018 our fundraising of £250,000 means
over £705,000 has been raised over the last six years.

Pride is singularly the most popular visitor attraction in the City’s event calendar, with benefits not only
for community groups and charities but also the wider city services, tourism and commercial venues’
profits. An estimated £20.5million is spent in Brighton & Hove businesses over the Pride weekend.

Pride is not just a weekend of parades and parties for the City, but also a time when family, friends,
neighbours and the city itself, recognises, celebrates and promotes tolerance and diversity within all
our communities.

We must thank our statutory partners Brighton & Hove City council, Sussex Police, Fire & rescue, the
NHS, our commercial supporters and all the volunteers who help make Pride happen.

Why Does Pride Matter?

    Probably the most frequently asked question when it
    comes to Pride must be “Why do we need a Pride?”

    Given the huge improvement in equalities over the last
    decade with protections written in to law and a legal
    recognition of our relationships, then it is understandable
    that some people, including those within the LGBT
    community, might think that we’ve won the fight for
    freedom. However in eight countries across the globe
    homosexuality is still punishable with the death penalty,
    while a further 70+ imprison citizens because of who they

    Brighton Pride will continue to raise awareness of the
    plight of Global LGBT communities who do not have the
    same freedoms that we enjoy in the United Kingdom.

Community Engagement Meetings
                     As part of Pride’s ongoing community engagement a series of
                     meetings were held on a regular basis in the lead-up to Pride 2018.

                     These meetings were specifically for the community groups and
                     organisations that took part in previous Prides or were planning to
                     take part in Pride 2018.

                     Pride has also been engaging with the LGBT Community groups
