Britain’s favorite seaside LGBTI festival, Brighton Pride, has chosen its theme to celebrate its 25th anniversary. An expected 160,000 participants and spectators will be part of the Brighton Pride Community Parade in early August next year.
And the theme will be Carnival of Diversity.
Organizers hope those in the parade will be inspired to create a ‘creative, lively, uplifting and empowering visual showcase in the city’.

NYC Pride announced the official theme for Pride 2014: “We have won when we’re one.” The 2014 theme is a reminder that inequality still exists both at home and abroad. Our work is unfinished until all members of the LGBT community, in all parts of the world, can enjoy the freedoms and protections they rightfully deserve.
Bearing this theme in mind, NYC Pride will host its annual calendar of events in June, commemorating the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. “In 2013, we saw monumental change with the downfall of the Defense of Marriage Act, but that should not deter us from fighting for total marriage equality.
In a country that is supposed to be united, we continue to live in the ‘Fractured States of America.’ We have not won until we’re one, both at home and across the globe,” said Chris Frederick, Managing Director.

Organizers for this year’s gay pride in the charming seaside village of Brighton announced their theme for this year’s celebration, Pink News reports:
The theme for this year’s Brighton Pride has been announced as “Gay Icons,” which organisers hope will inspire parade-goers to create costumes ranging from Lady Gaga to Alan Turing. The celebrations will be held in Preston Park on Saturday 3 August, marking the 21st anniversary of the event.
…Paul Kemp of Aeon Events said: “There are so many important and influential people for us to celebrate as a community. They range from the most spectacular and celebrated stars of stage, screen and music to those who have changed the lives of the LGBT community and furthered equality through politics and sheer bravery.”

Brighton and Hove locals are to be asked to choose the theme of the city’s 2012 Pride event. Following a local call for suggestions, the two themes chosen for the run-off are The United Colours of Pride and Triumphs and Tragedies for the event, which will take place on 1 September.
The United Colours of Pride is an international theme focusing on the rainbow flag emblem. It will raise awareness of countries where gay and transgender people face widespread discrimination. Organisers say the theme would lend political impact without detracting from the carnival atmosphere and colour of the Parade.
United Colours of Pride was suggested by Helen Jones, director at MindOut LGBT mental health project in Community Base in Brighton.
