Trans* Pride Brighton 2014

Please share your pictures and videos of Trans* Pride Brighton so we can properly archive this year’s 1st ever Trans* Pride march in Europe and the 2nd ever Trans* Pride Brighton. Thanks!

Some more coverage of our Trans* Pride Brighton weekend event, from Latest News. Please share! Still buzzing from such a feel-good event. Thanks to everyone who made it and we hope to see the rest of you next year!

BRIGHTON TRANS from ITV News Meridian

A very positive segment about this year’s Trans* Pride Brighton which was on ITV news yesterday, with comments from committee members Sarah Savage and Fox Fisher, as well as Caroline Lucas. 

What an incredible weekend, with perfect weather and loads of happy smiley faces. We should all be extremely proud of ourselves!

Great to have some coverage on Pink News.

We also have journalist Freddie McConnell visiting from The Guardian, and ITV was also at the park yesterday interviewing people for a segment on the news today. 

Our first ever Trans* Pride March, was a heart-felt success. We anticipated around 100 people for the march, and we were emotionally overwhelmed with the people who turned up, with banners, acapella songs (thanks Rainbow Chorus!), instruments playing soundscapes, friends & allies. It was extremely special and a great way to kick off our main event day, Pride in the Park at New Steine Gardens. You can read about it here in Gscene online.

Also, in the park, we are pleased to report 1923 unique visitors. Way more than we anticipated. You can read about Pride in the Park here.

Today is the last day of our three day event, with a BYO picnic & BBQ at the beach directly down from the New Steine Gardens, from 12 midday. Look for the Trans* Pride flags.

Fox & Lew will be filming for a My Genderation video to document this year’s event.

*IMPORTANT NOTICE* PRESS / MEDIA

If you are wanting to take photographs, film or interview people to help promote Trans* Pride, thank you very much for taking the time to do so.

Due to the vulnerability and stealth nature of some Trans* people, we ask that you are extra considerate today. 

All PRESS, please check in with Fox Fisher, who is handling all media today. You will have a quick briefing and be given a PRESS lanyard. 

Fox: 07540 697509

Anyone who does not wish to be photographed, please make yourself known to anyone wearing a PRESS lanyard. 

Anyone wishing to speak to the PRESS to share personal stories and anecdotes about what Trans* Pride means to you, please do so. 

Thanks very much

Tshirts, Tote-bags, magnets, badges and stickers! Loads were bought last night at the AWESOME film night. See everyone outside the Marlborough Pub at 11.30 for a 12 midday march up St James Street to The New Steine Gardens for a 6 hour park event!

Melodies to march to!

We’re really looking forward to the Trans* Pride march on Saturday, starting outside The Marlborough Pub (4 Prince’s Street) at 11.30am - and to speed us on our way, the fantastic Rainbow Chorus will be performing as we gather!  

The only LGBT Choir in the South of England, the Rainbow Chorus is a community choir that aims to provide an enjoyable and supportive environment for LGBT members to sing together, make new friends and develope their talents.  With music from soulful spirituals to some stirring marching songs, they’ll send us off with a spring in our step!

(If you’re interested in singing, the Rainbow Chorus is on the look out for new members - please check out this page for more info)
