The Trans Pride Brighton parade kicked off earlier today with a sea of white, blue and pink flags taking over the coastal city. Trans women, men, non-binary people and allies turned out with the slogan #LwiththeT very much present.
No Repeat of London Anti-Trans Protests
Fortunately there was no repeat of the radical feminist campaigners who marred the London Pride event with their anti-trans protest. Crowds set off at 12 noon for the 1.3 mile parade ending in Brunswick Square where the main events are now underway. These include a range of music, spoken word, poetry, as well as community stalls.
The light cover of clouds kept the heat off the parade during their march and then the sun came out to play just as the fun started in the Square. Many also sent messages of support for the march via social media.
