Has Brighton Pride really been cancelled?

No. No it hasn’t

Since The Brighton and Hove Leader ran their report last week, rumours that Pride 2015 has been cancelled have gained a lot of traction.

Rumour had it that Brighton had its government funding for Pride cut, and that the city council simply couldn’t afford to stage an event of that scale. Until now, the truth remained a full-blown Scooby Doo mystery.

No no no, we'll be having none of that thank you!

No no no, we’ll be having none of that thank you

But, because we’re super nice and all do liberal arts degrees (and have nothing better to do with our 32 hours free time per working week), we can confirm that Brighton Pride 2015 will be going ahead, and will take place on August 1st and 2nd.

Not only will business continue as usual, but 2015 marks the 25th anniversary of Brighton Pride, meaning that the shorts get shorter and the nights get longer (yes that is basically a quote from Chicago).

We will all be there in our rainbow unitards to celebrate Brighton’s renewed consummation. We suggest you buy your tickets for the gun show ASAP.

Hooray for Gay!
