Pride is an undoubtedly important (and extremely fun) event that is celebrated in various locations around the world each year. However, 2019 held even more significance as it marked 50 years since the Stonewall uprising.
Pride Barcelona decided to split their celebrations into three main spaces, a Pride Village section which hosted LGBTI talks, activities and a large restaurant area. Alongside this, there was a main stage section which showcased music, DJs, performances, dance competitions and competitions between the best Drag Queens.
Finally, in keeping with the theme of family, Pride Barcelona hosted a Pride Kids section where there were activities and events for families and children to enjoy. As well as these spectacular celebrations, there was the extremely important Pride march.
Living, working or visiting Brighton and Hove around Pride leaves you with an exceptionally special feeling. The vibrant seaside city is electrified with excitement as people prepare for what was described as ‘the country’s most popular Pride event’ by The Guardian. People unite to watch the huge, colourful parade weave its way through the city, starting at Hove Lawns and ending at Preston Park for the ‘UK’s biggest Pride festival’ Pride in the Park. In addition to this, there is the Village Party, where you can find entertainment, live performances, drag acts, DJ’s, singers and more. It’s such a spectacular sight to see the seafront full of people enjoying themselves, dancing and uniting. However, the party doesn’t stop there! On the Sunday, the party continues, and you’ll be able to catch more special live acts, entertainment and more. Here at The Stag Company and Fizzbox HQ we’re celebrating Pride by hosting a Pride-themed company summer games which will go on for the two weeks leading up to Pride. We’ll then celebrate with a Pride-themed buffet. Catch us strutting our stuff around the rainbow coloured streets of Brighton this weekend!
