Brighton Pride 2015

Well what a weekend to remember! I have had an absolute blast over the last few days in Brighton celebrating Gay Pride with T and a few other friends, the atmosphere all weekend was amazing! Brighton turned in to one massive rainbow with the amount of colourful costumes, flags and decorations that were surrounding everywhere and with music flooding all of the streets, everyone was in the party mood!

On Saturday we arrived in Brighton to swarms of people all crowding around the clock tower waiting to watch the parade travel down North Street, and everywhere I turned I saw nothing but beaming smiley faces, the atmosphere was buzzing! 11224684_919778774727678_8284826855464020231_o

People were crowding every single area, standing on window sills, sitting on top of bus stops and telephone boxes, and everywhere you looked up you could see residents in their homes in North street all hanging out of their windows dancing away.

The parade was phenomenal, and it seemed to go on forever as well, so many different groups and companies all supporting the festival, evidently making huge efforts to make their floats look bright, bold and colourful. I believe photos would not have done the parade enough justice so I made a short video below for you to watch. If you can’t watch the embedded video below then click here for the direct link.

Once the parade had finished, we head over to Old Steine to collect our wristbands for entry to Kemp Town where St James’s street and all surrounding roads had been closed off for a huge 2 day street party. All bars and restaurants made a huge effort to decorate their buildings and set up stalls in the street selling food and drink. We visited Neighbourhood and sat in their sun-trap garden and then continued down the street to Rock Place where we saw Brighton Rocks smashing out old funky grooves!

Later that evening T was Djing at The Pavilion Tavern on North Street with a few other people for his Neon Pride event which ended the day off nicely, needless to say that the next morning I definitely needed a hangover cure or even the ‘hair of a dog’ to get me going for round 2 on Sunday!

On Sunday we all went back to Kemp Town with our weekend entry wristbands and were all immediately amazed by how busy it was again! The atmosphere and happy vibes was so overwhelming you couldn’t help but join in and have a boogie, all of the streets were jam packed full of crowds all dancing and singing along to the entertainment.

Four hours later, with a few Gin and Tonics then a tasty Chorizo sausage burger inside of me, it was time for us all to call it a night, by late evening the music had calmed down and brighton was left to slowly calm down after the fantastic, energy filled weekend. 11844949_919778364727719_6281809579144664358_o
