Brighton Pride is back and will be as fabulous as always! Here’s a handy little Patch approved round-up of highlights for you all… 

On Thursday 1st August, Charles Street Tap will be hosting Rupaul’s Drag Race sensation Pixie Polite who will be joining award winning icon Mary Mac for a special bumper show from 8pm. 

Friday 2nd August sees every bar in Brighton bringing you an opening party for the weekend, so I suggest go and support all of your favs, if you’re a visitor head to the St James’ Street or Marine Parade area, to find all of the action and there will be plenty! 

DILF will be hosting their Pride opening party at the ABOVE club later on in the evening. 

Saturday 3rd August starts with of course, the parade, all through the city centre streets before it arrives at Preston Park ready to kickstart all of the entertainment across six different areas, with myself DJing in the VIP area before taking over from all of our fabulous drag queens at Legends’ Miss Jason Cabaret stage. l plan to keep you all dancing before everyone heads over to watch park headliners; Girls Aloud after Billy Porter and Sophie Ellis Bextor, So buzzed for this!

On Sunday 4th of August the street party will get proceedings started all along Marine Parade with DJs galore, whilst St James’ Street centered stages will feature the likes of Sally Vate, Marsha Mallow, Davina Sparkle and many more outside of the Queens Arms, Marine Tavern, Bar Broadway, The Bulldog and Tiki Hut. 

On Sunday, the Preston Park party sees the return of the Naughty 90’s stage starring Rozalla and Livin Joy, and the Polyglamorous stage will return with the amazing Princess Superstar.  

On the main stage expect to see Gabrielle, S-Club and Mika finishing your evening off before we all head back to Legends for the ultimate Sunday Funday afterparty with 20 performing queens and the club for partying until 5am Monday morning! Phew! 

Exhausted already but so excited! Happy Pride! Be safe, be proud, be gorgeous.
