Trans* Pride Brighton 26-28 July 2013

In only 8 weeks Brighton will host the UK’s first ever Pride event celebrating gender diversity. We are a not-for-profit, non party political community group, here to inspire and promote inclusivity of all trans, intersex, gender variant and queer people to help us make a real difference. By promoting equality and diversity through visibility, we will educate and eliminate discrimination we face, and also to celebrate our unique history and gender diversity.

 

As a proud member of the comittee for Trans* Pride Brighton 2013, I’m very excited that all preperations are going well and we are looking forward to what promises to be a truly wonderful and memorable event

 

Unfortunately however we’ve been let down by some local organisations who we had hoped would be more supportive of the event, and as a result we are having to re-evaluate our resources and redouble our fundraising efforts.

 

While we’re all working very hard to make this event happen for the community, we need your help and we need it now! Please consider donating whatever you can, no matter how small, sharing and encouraging others to do the same. Every little helps!

 

Also, any fundraising initiatives such as sponsored swims, cake sales or similar would be warmly welcomed. Please get in touch through transpridebrighton@gmail.com if you’d like us to provide you with headed sponsor forms or fundraising resources.

 

For one-off donations in the meantime, however, here is out Go FundMe page. Please share and distribute widely.

  1. Greetings from Chicago! There is a restaurant in Brighton that I know the owner – Hasan of Pomegranate – who might help. I owned a restaurant with him in Austin, TX. He doesn’t know I am trans* yet, as I haven’t seen him in ages. If you see him, tell him ‘Miguel is transgender’, and that you got this ‘from his father’. You might get something out of it. Best of luck to you on the Pride Event. I will be in Paris at that time and may try to sneak over for a few days if I can.

    Cheers

  2. Having just moved here from London, I’m well excited by all this – but it’s a bit confusing as to what’s going on, and how to get in on the event.
    There’s no addresses for pubs or places to meet here.
    We need ALL the info, clearly listed, and with only a month to go, less of the TBC please!
    This is constructive criticism I hope – not intended to moan!
    Thanks and well done – but lets get it sorted out CLEARLY PLEASE!!

  5. If I had not just spent a fortune at Sparkle I would be coming to this at the drop of a hat. Still thinking of finding a way down for the 27th to show my support. Good luck with this weekend and i will mark it in to my next years calendar of events for sure! X

    • the airline was bankrupt and closed and walked away, tried to that is. He explained he was getting people to divert us to other airlines. Took four hours to process us all. I flew out at 9 at night with 35 minute transfer in Atlanta which I barely made. Got into Cities at just before midnight. Baggage was lost. Never found, no one responsible for it

    • Last night I dreamt I was inside the body of a man who had elected to die by paddling a punt-style craft through shark-infested waters. Guess these water dreams are in equal parts lack of Stella Artois and the Copenhagen summit.

    • You are just the Queen of Top Tips, Vix! (That rhymes.) How do you know this stuff? Why don't I know this stuff? Well, I do now, thanks to you!The boots are heavenly, as is your button hook, a perfect pairing! I love your frock, and as always you put the outfit together with consummate Vix style.Good news about finding a suitable nursing home for your dad, I'm sure he will be more settled there.
