Parade To Celebrate 40 Years Of Rainbow Flag

Pride organisers want everyone to wear a colour from the Rainbow Flag.

Applications for the 2018 Brighton Pride ‘Carnival Of Diversity’ Community Parade are now OPEN!
The annual Pride Community Parade is the biggest and most exciting visual event in Brighton & Hove’s calendar bringing the whole community out on to the city’s streets as over 300,000 people participate and watch the spellbinding spectacular of our hugely successful “Carnival Of Diversity”.

Participants have included Brighton Pride’s partners and sponsors, local community groups, representatives from political parties and faith groups, the NHS, Brighton Housing Trust, Sussex Police, Sussex Fire services, the Girl Guides, Scouts, trade unions, along side major corporate brands showing their support for diversity, and a sensational selection of performers, musicians and artists including costumier extraordinaire Mandinga Arts, Brighton community choirs, Marta Scott Dance Company, Raw Samba and Samba Pelo Mar.


The overall theme for Brighton Pride 2018 is ‘Colour My World’ celebrating the 40th anniversary of the rainbow flag’s original eight colours of pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet representing, respectively: sexuality, life, healing, sun, nature, art, harmony, and spirit. The eight colours also vividly represent the diversity of our community. The Rainbow Flag reminds us that ours is a diverse community – composed of people with a variety of individual tastes of which we should all be proud.

Participants in the Pride Community Parade are encouraged to align themselves to a colour that they identify with and can express on the day to help make a riot of colour. This might be a colour that reflects your logo, uniform, flag or affiliation or just the colour that makes you feel fabulous and want to parade under.
