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.
