Brighton Pride 2016

It is safe to say Brighton was bursting with pride this weekend with the celebrations leaving a trail of glitter and colours in its wake! No wonder with an estimated 300,000 people coming together from all parts of the world and taking part in this year’s Pride, which is said to bring in £18m into our local economy.

Organisers have said Pride this year has become “more important than ever” after the Orlando shootings, which was commiserated with a minute’s silence at the festivities. Director Paul Kemp has said; "Brighton Pride 2016 will be more important than ever and I ask all allies and friends of the LGBT community to come out and stand shoulder to shoulder with friends and family to stand up against all hate crime." In spite of the terrible events that occurred earlier this year, the mood this weekend was very much fun filled and celebratory.

Public stewards such as local ambulance groups, fire service crew and police officers joined in too by marching in uniform, decked with colourful garlands. Sussex police went one step further and sent out a huge message by emblazing an entire van in pride colours to show their support for the LGBT festivities.

We at Howlett Clarke are extremely proud to be part of the Brighton community and thoroughly  enjoyed all the celebrations that took place.
