I spent this summer in London, and during my stay I went to Brighton to visit my cousin. Coincidentally, that same weekend the Brighton Pride for the LGBT community took place – and my cousin was performing in it! The pride is one the biggest events in Britain and has an estimated audience of over 150,000 people. This was HUGE!
So, here are 10 things I loved about the Brighton Pride:
1. The Dancing Queens
These queens danced away for over 3 hours. Well who needs a pause when you are swaying to a noble cause?!
2. The Men Who Knew Their Hair
All I can say is that the Cross-dressing fashion industry isn’t far away!
3. The Oldest Gay Man In The Village
Age is just a number, anyways!
4. Counting Colours In The Rainbow
Just an example of the many vibrant spectacles.
5. When Kinky Got A Whole New Definition
Move over girls, there is a new sexy in town!
6. The Mommy, Momma and Me March
We don’t choose our family, it’s God’s gift to us… and it makes us VERY proud!
7. The Fight Against The Phobia
The march addressed all the countries that had criminalised homosexuality.
8. The Hope For Change
The entire human race survives on hope and they are NOT any different.
9. Eye Candy
10. To Say The Least, Music Makes Us One
“I hope someday you will join us, and the world will live as one.”
