This weekend in Brighton: Pride!

It’s happening, after all the fuss and fannying, Pride is happening and it’s on this weekend in Brighton, woop!

Ok, it’s ticketed where before it was free, but there’s some justification when you look at the line-up: Joe McElderry, 80s pop icon Sonia and BootyLuv will all be shaking their booties.

As before, it’s all going on in Preston Park, after the Pride Parade, which leaves Madeira Drive at 11am. Once the crowds have been whipped into a frenzy, the boys have squeezed into their Lycra and the queens have perfected their intricacies (probably with a little bit of masking tape) the party gets underway.

The main park event promises much – remember, you need tickets for Pride so don’t just follow the crowd as you did previously.

There’s a community village (for everyone); a BME tent (Black and Minority Ethnic – of course still for everyone); a cabaret tent (for the drama ones); and of course there’s the ‘Bears’ tent (for the hairy ones).

As well as the Live stage, you’ve the Go.Go Festival/Zhoosh Women’s Tent (helped along with Brighton and Hove’s very own LGBT social network ZhooshBrighton.

The Gay Men’s Chorus make an appearance mid-afternoon before the gloves come off and things ramp up in the early evening.

All the fun and a fair!

And there’s the usual heart-worrying fairground rides – I’d go just for that amazing old-time chair ride (see pic) as it beats even the fastest TurboMegabooster!
