BRIGHTON and Hove will be painted red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple, as it shows its Pride this weekend.

Neil Vowles reports on what the 160,000 party revellers can expect in 2014’s version of this great celebration of the LGBT community.

THIS year’s Pride will be the most accessible in the country and in the event’s history.

Organisers have put special focus on making sure it does not exclude the elderly, the hearing or visually impaired and wheelchair users.

In a symbolic gesture to mark the inclusivity of the event, 50 members of the Brighton and Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum will lead the parade today in a cavalcade of golf buggies.

The forum’s chairman Billie Lewis said putting disabled people at the front of the queue was an important symbol that Pride was for everybody.

He said: “We have worked very hard to make sure this will happen and we are confident that this will be the most accessible Pride in the country.

“We hope other events will look at what we have done and use us an example.”

After months of public consultations and discussions, organisers have come up with a range of innovations to help make attending Pride as easy as possible for those with accessibility issues. The centre of support can be found at the access tent at the northern end of Preston Park, which will treble up as a safe space, an information point and a place to report hate crimes.

Visitors will be able to help themselves to a BSL (British Sign Language) takeaway, where interpreters will be made available for 30-minute slots to accompany people around the park.

Hydraulic lifts will help people in and out of their chairs or on to changing beds, while charging facilities for up to 16 mobility scooters will allow people to top-up their support vehicles for 30 minutes.

A freedom pass, the first of its kind to be developed in the country, will allow those with access issues to let support staff know discreetly of any needs they might have allowing them to get to facilities and services they need.

Mr Lewis said: “The freedom pass gives guaranteed access and takes the stress out of people’s day.”

The innovations have been met with approval by one of Brighton Pride’s best-known supporters, Eastenders star June Brown.

In a message of goodwill to all at this year’s Pride she said: “I am absolutely delighted that the elderly are being appreciated by the younger generation in this year’s Pride and are now able to join with you in your day.”

Isn't that a pretty picture? Enjoy Pride, everyone who decides to go. As for the 'straight families festival' suggestion - whoah! Now I bet THAT would be fun! Anyone for a bit of face-painting and cream tea?

The glorious omnipotent being may, however, still make it drizzle later if the chap in the crotchless lederhosen keeps waving his Bratwurst around in the beer tent.
Homophobic religious leaders will be presently constructing increasingly elaborate fairy tales to explain the somewhat disappointing lack of divine retribution...pausin

It's a real shame that people have to come from all over the country to do something that they wouldn't dare do in their own home town.

Homophobia encompasses a range of negative attitudes and feelings toward homosexuality or people who are identified or perceived as being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). It can be expressed as antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, or hatred, may be based on irrational fear, and is sometimes related to religious beliefs.

The behaviour you are so ashamed of happens every weekend in Brighton. Heterosexuals mainly on Stag and Hen do's. Pierced nipples and thongs are a regular feature.

PS - 'This morning after Pride'...bit difficult as Pride in Preston park didn't even start until this afternoon so your 24 hrs early with your example.
I'm talking about two or three years ago, actually. Anyway, as you wish in this matter, you obviously enjoy being some kind of self-appointed apologist in this matter.

Anyway, leave me alone please, I'm watching "Joe" on Sky tv and it's a really good film: I suppose you think that's sad and pathetic - no doubt, according to you, I'm automatically therefore some kind of lonely, miserable, friendless soul - probably in some poxy bedsit chomping KFC? (!)

(At least I said it first!)

Enjoy Pride.

Why does it all come down to sex for these people? The way they dress, act, the things they do, its all about homosexual sexual practices. Very few people object to gay sex these days but it's totally wrong for it to be so public.

You'd think it was an adults only fetish night based on how some of the people are drsesed.
Why?? because shut the f*ck up, thats why!

I don't think anything of the sort. You are the one judging. Your first comment about pride today was "I feel sick" I am far from a 'self-appointed apologist' and don't enjoy spending my Saturday evenings having cyber-spats with people, but when I was flicking through pics of pride and read the sort of bile that you wrote I had no choice but to react. You don't know what it's like to grow up gay whether you like it or not and get bullied and ostracised at school and work and be thrown out of your family home. To feel sick yourself at being attracted to the wrong sex and feel disgusted with yourself. I'm assuming you haven't had to go through that and then need days like this to get the support, love and acceptance from the kind of people who attend this event? No, I didn't think so. I will leave you to your film. I have watched it and agree it's a good one. Also you have now made me fancy a bucket of KFC which I will take alone in my flat actually, where I live just by myself.

I think it's pretty homophobic when someone says they 'feel sick' my friend. Secondly, by using the spandex metaphor you are stereotyping and showing your ignorance. Finally, to accuse someone of being a 'straightophobe' is quite ridiculous. Only a homophobe would come up with a term like that for someone who is making valid arguments to obvious prejudice and intolerance. For the record there is nothing wrong with wearing spandex anyway. I only wish I could squish into some.

I never said I felt sick my friend, in fact, having read your post above I feel sorry you had to deal with a lot of cr*p in your life, however, you need to try harder when dealing with others who don't agree with you, labelling them homophobes is simply lazy.

Anyway, you try to enjoy the rest of the evening

People are allowed to be intolerant of bad behaviour even if it's from the LGBT community you know without some prat labelling them as a homophobe all the time.
'People are allowed to be intolerant of bad behaviour even if it's from the LGBT community'

You are intolerant full stop. Such a nasty and negative soul. I imagine you have those little white bits at the corner of your mouth, where froth has formed and made a little home.

You need to read properly my dear. I didn't lable YOU a homophobe. You attacked me for 'disagreeing' with 'Youlikemyjug's who's actual first comment today was "I feel sick" You sir need to read everything here to get a full understanding of what people are saying before you attack them. You accused me of being a 'Hetrophobe' for responding to a clearly homophobic comment. Finally this has nothing at all to do with people not agreeing with me, this is about standing up against ignorance. I did not 'Lable' you as a homophobe, ironically here you labled me. You are the person who called someone a prat and a hetrophobe. Who's the labler here?

Well it was a fun day and evening out - and I see all the saddo's are still here, tapping away disapprovingly... The irony is probably not ONE of them has even left their smelly bedsit today, and rather spent the entire day complaining about something that has had no impact on them whatsoever. Kind of like when you go to a safari park and you're in the baboon enclosure, and something spooks one of them and then they all rush around screaming as though it's the end of the world. At least they have an excuse, they're just monkeys and are not capable of reason. Go back to picking fleas off of yourselves - don't worry, the world is NOT coming to an end, the sun WILL rise again tomorrow, and then there will be an article on seagulls or something and you can all once again take to your keyboards and whinge about it all day long. I'm back out for a pint in Kemp Town - have a nice evening, little monkeys!

Kind of like when you go to a safari park and you're in the baboon enclosure, and something spooks one of them and then they all rush around screaming as though it's the end of the world. At least they have an excuse, they're just monkeys and are not capable of reason. Go back to picking fleas off of yourselves - don't worry, the world is NOT coming to an end, the sun WILL rise again tomorrow, and then there will be an article on seagulls or something and you can all once again take to your keyboards and whinge about it all day long. I'm back out for a pint in Kemp Town - have a nice evening, little monkeys!

"I think it's pretty homophobic when someone says they 'feel sick' my friend. Secondly, by using the spandex metaphor you are stereotyping and showing your ignorance. Finally, to accuse someone of being a 'straightophobe' is quite ridiculous. Only a homophobe would come up with a term like that for someone who is making valid arguments to obvious prejudice and intolerance. For the record there is nothing wrong with wearing spandex anyway. I only wish I could squish into some."

So, two accusations about someone being a homophobe - why did you later wriggle and claim that you had done no such thing?

Firstly, being nauseated by homosexuality isn't a homophobic act because it isn't extreme or irrational to have those feelings. We cannot help what our body tells us.

Second, it is how people respond to their feelings against gays which gives rise to criminality. Incitement to violence or negative discrimination is what the law says is 'wrong'.

Thirdly, why should punching a gay for being gay be any worse than punching a blonde for being blonde? Why are gays given that extra 'protection' under the law?

Finally, misusing the accusation not only devalues it but actually gives rise to it being a badge of honour for some heteros who are delighted and relieved that they don't like gay people.

Live & let live and avoid judging others is a good foundation for a free society. Freedom of conscience, religion speech and assembly are all essential for a liberal-democratic and tolerant society.

Freedom is: The freedom to have an opinion without being called a bigot or mentally ill (suffering from a phobia). Freedom to follow your own faith provided it does no harm to others (taking offense is a choice). Freedom to act according to your own conscience even if it may not agree with another. Freedom to exercise your choice or religion without persecution. Freedom from being prevented from continuing to work or carry on in our chosen profession because you exercise of the essential freedoms.

Some people believe that the homosexual lifestyle is wrong. Some do not. Some follow a faith that teaches following a homosexual lifestyle excludes them from blessing or may even exclude them from eternal reward. Some people believe homosexual behaviour is against nature and is an aberration. Not all.

Live and let live. Avoid judging and remember tolerance goes both ways. Diversity means accepting differences without thinking only your way is right.

Some people may believe pride goes before a fall. No matter what you may be proud of. All are equally susceptible to pridefulness.
