Happy holidays, from Trans Pride Brighton!

Trans* Pride Documentary Film by My Genderation 

Over the weekend of Trans* Pride 2013, we sold out of the batch of vests, tshirts and flags that Fox printed for Trans* Pride, Brighton.

Here’s a link to a print-on-demand site, which mean you can customise your item and have it delivered to your door.  

Fox will be printing another batch of colourful tshirts & vests as well as some flags in the near future.

Although the profit is small, every penny goes towards the making of My Genderation Documentary Films www.mygenderation.com 

Design by Fox at www.salutehq.com

Thanks for the photo, Rosa & Darcy.

Trans Pride Brighton - UK’s first trans pride! - was a huge success. It was wonderfully cheerful and friendly. There was a genuine sense of connection within the trans community and between the trans and the wider community. It was led from the incentive of the trans community establishing it is not a fringe of the LGBT community, but a thriving community in its own right as well. It was run on a very tight budget but still needs to raise funds to run. Please donate a little and pass on this message.

Press Article, leading up to the big event.

We have had a fantastic first ever Trans* Pride, in Brighton. Photos & Film uploaded soon.

"Broken Rainbow UK is delighted to be sponsoring Trans* Pride Brighton, as a charity we have been supporting the trans* communities for over 10 years with our national LGBT Domestic Violence helpline and other support and awareness services. We are very pleased to be able to extend this support to the self-organised celebration of Trans* Pride Brighton. We believe they will go from strength to strength in the coming years, if fact they have already started to attract visitors from outside the UK! Finally we would like to remind everyone that as well as being able to call our helpline on 0300 999 5428 whenever it is open, we also have a trans* specific service on Tuesdays between 1pm and 5pm when calls are answered by members of the trans* community.”, Federico Podeschi, CEO, Broken Rainbow UK.”

Important Announcement: Trans* March 2013

To all Trans* Pride Brighton attendees,

It is with a tinge of sadness we have to announce that due to time constraints and the level of detail and planning required to hold a safe Trans* Pride March, we realise this cannot be done this year.

The Trans* Pride committee assembled and begin planning at late notice just a few months ago and there seems to be a ridiculous amount of red tape and money involved with just walking together up St James Street as a large group. We thank you for your understanding on this matter and for your continuing support.

The Brighton & Hove Police support us fully in making this decision as being the right one for this year. This way we can concentrate on delivering a great first event at New Steine Gardens.

We fully intend to hold a march next year. 

We are still, however, holding a fantastic event in New Steine Gardens, on Saturday 27th, from 12.00-18.00, and it’s absolutely free. Enjoy music, poetry, and comedy, and browse the community stalls we have on site. We’ll also have a cluster of local businesses offering refreshments in the park.

Thank you once again,

TPB Team x
