Trans Pride Brighton is the oldest and still the largest event of its kind in Europe. Our first Trans Pride was held in July 2013 and we now expect more than 10,000 attendees every year.
The last in-person event in 2019 was a week-long festival of gender diversity, featuring a movie night, a record auction, a fun run, club nights and more. We host the largest march for trans rights in the United Kingdom, and The Marlborough has acted as a starting point for the march.
During the pandemic we have moved our Trans Pride online, which has enabled us to reach an even greater audience, with more than 50,000 unique viewers for the live stream.

Please note we welcome applications from the trans, non-binary, intersex and gender-variant community.
