This year’s Brighton and Hove Pride Parade’s theme of ‘Generations of love’ was a fantastic fit to the university, as it celebrated LGBT+ identities across generations to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Inn uprising that ignited the Pride movement.
The university’s presence was organised by the Equality and Diversity team and supported by SouthCoast Conferences, with Print Services designing and producing the vinyl for our fantastic rainbow bus. More than 60 students and staff members joined the university’s Parade, our best attendance to date, with plenty more spotted cheering in the crowd.
This year, the university's LGBT+ Staff and Student Societies and allies were joined by Vice-Chancellor, Professor Debra Humphris, Director of People, Julie Fryatt and PVC Education and Students Professor Ruth Whittaker in our best attended parade to date.
Professor Humphris said: “Following our Stonewall success this year, it is essential for the university to continue to play its part in Pride as a symbol of our institutional support for the LGBT+ community.”
