Every year since 2013 Trans Pride Brighton & Hove has hosted the largest protest for trans liberation in Europe, with over 10,000 people attending. The first Trans Pride Brighton was the first Trans Pride event to take place outside of America. As well as the main protest march and park event, the annual Trans Pride Brighton festival has a wide programme of other events, typically including an after party, a film festival, art events, open mic nights, gigs, sporting events, and gaming events.
In 2022, we opened the Trans Pride Centre; a community centre for empowering and supporting the local and wider trans community and providing a venue for organisations, workshops and services. Our aim is to promote equality and diversity, to advance education, and to eliminate discrimination against trans, intersex, gender variant and queer people.
We seek to provide a safe and welcoming space for trans and nonbinary people, their friends, families and allies to gather, seek advice and information, and find necessary services. We aim to inspire all TNBI people by celebrating trans lives and gender diversity; to educate and eliminate discrimination by promoting equality and diversity through visibility, and to celebrating our community’s unique history.
We host a number of organisations and services at the centre, including Navigate’s Binder Library, weekly TransSober support groups, our own young adults’ club and a section of the Museum of Transology protest sign exhibition.
