Flying the flag to show police support

First published in News by

Sussex Police has announced that it will be showing its support for Pride “more publicly than ever” this time around.

The Pride flag will be flying at Brighton’s John Street police station and for the first time police cars will be showing the rainbow colours.

Brighton and Hove divisional commander Nev Kemp said police had been working hard for months with Pride organisers in order to make sure as many people as possible get to have “an enjoyable and safe weekend”.

He said the force aimed to “keep disruption to the local community to a minimum” while maintaining a visible presence with officers on the beat to “reassure and keep people safe”.

A warning has also been issued to anyone planning unlicensed and unofficial outside parties to celebrate the momentous weekend.

Sussex Police will be hosting a stand in Preston Park attended by LGBT officers and volunteers while Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne will also have a stand.

Important details

Tickets for the park and pledgebands for the street party can be bought at Preston Park and ticket booths in Marine Parade outside Harry Ramsden's and in the Old Steine close to the junction with St James's Street.

More discrimination shown by the police.

Isn't it time they showed a bit more respect for heterosexuals, rather than sucking up to this lot?

And what's the betting that someone will be arrested for 'homophobia' just because they express a dislike towards events like this?

A day out with lots of burly shaven headed men celebrating their culture whilst getting off their faces on drink/drugs, i thought you'd love it Stevo as it sounds like March For England (but without all the supressed anger and threats of violence).

The LGBT community have won and the homophobes have lost - Excellent.

I'm not aware of any supressed anger during the MFE - the marchers sing their joy about being English, and the UAF filth express their racist anger towards the English.

However, the residents of B&H will be forced to supress their anger at Pride, because any expression of that anger will be deemed 'homophobic' and liable to prosecution.

According to some, it's 'homophobic' to complain about street/road closures.

Pathetic, eh?

I don't mind pride, actually, but I haven't been since 2012 due to it now coinciding with my annual holiday in Spain.

Enjoy your day, sweetie x

Sounds like the gay community people has carte blanche to do what they like in public.
I've never understood why gay men are able to do what they do in public spaces like Dukes Mound without any action whereas if a heterosexual couple are seen in public it results in arrest.
It seems that cruising and public sex is OK if it involves gay people but if it involves heterosexuals it's treated as a crime.
If i went down to Dukes Mound area on the seafront with a lady friend and had sex I doubt I'd be handed free condoms and left alone. Same as if I committed a sexual act with a lady in bushes at Preston Park.

Absolutely right. What the 'Gay' boys are allowed to get away with is ridiculous. The Police and the Council are turning a blind eye to Drug taking, Buggery, Exhibitionism, Public nudity, Sex and immorality.

I think you will find the Police target heterosexual doggers at places like Devils Dyke.

Brighton PRIDE:
Nov 2012 quotations:
Brighton & Hove has the highest rate of HIV infection outside of London.
Stephen Nicholson, NHS Sussex’s lead commissioner for HIV and sexual health in Brighton and Hove, said the figures were a crude estimate. He said HIV infection rates were not equally distributed across the city and the vast majority of cases were among the city’s gay population.

What's there to be proud of?

But it DOES affect our lives.

The 'gay community' which decided to inflict itself on B&H for no apparent reason brought problems for everyone.

Our police have had to deal with a massive increase in petty and trivial offences relating to 'homophobia'. Our council has to deal with spurious claims of 'homophobic' bullying in our schools whenever the word 'gay' is used in school. The incidence of drug use is increased in B&H thanks to the gays, and they occasionally murder each other.

So don't give us any sh*t about something that doesn't affect us straights.....the gays have ruined B&H, and it's time the silent majority stood up this.

Brighton PRIDE: Nov 2012 quotations: Brighton & Hove has the highest rate of HIV infection outside of London. Stephen Nicholson, NHS Sussex’s lead commissioner for HIV and sexual health in Brighton and Hove, said the figures were a crude estimate. He said HIV infection rates were not equally distributed across the city and the vast majority of cases were among the city’s gay population.

But it DOES affect our lives.

The 'gay community' which decided to inflict itself on B&H for no apparent reason brought problems for everyone.

Our police have had to deal with a massive increase in petty and trivial offences relating to 'homophobia'. Our council has to deal with spurious claims of 'homophobic' bullying in our schools whenever the word 'gay' is used in school. The incidence of drug use is increased in B&H thanks to the gays, and they occasionally murder each other.

So don't give us any sh*t about something that doesn't affect us straights.....the gays have ruined B&H, and it's time the silent majority stood up this.
Your whole straight vs gays argument is incredibly stupid and boring. We're all human. We're all capable of living side by side despite different interests and beliefs. I'm a gay man, but very few of my friends are also gay. I have friends that are Christian and don't exactly agree with what I do, but we're friends anyway because sexuality does not and should not matter in this day and age. Yes there are drug users, yes there is anti-social behaviour (I have personally never been cruising - I much prefer the comfort of a bed!) but it's nothing straight people don't do so I find your post quite hypocritical if we're generalising entire communities here. Drugs, murder and anti-social behaviour have NOTHING to do with sexuality, and everything to do with the person themselves. I never inflicted myself onto this city either - I was born here, and I'm definitely not going anywhere. Especially not for the likes of you. I'm a Brightonian, I'm gay. And there is absolutely nothing you can do about it.

My point is that the problems gay people 'inflict' on this city are no different or worse than the problems straight people 'inflict'. But I don't want to argue, I don't want to preach equality to people that are never going to change their views for the better.

Well, it's not like plenty of notice isn't given now is it. People are well aware of when and where Brighton Pride is. If I ever have children I will take them to see the parade, and I will teach them to love and respect people and the decisions they make. Nobody should ever be made to feel like a second class citizen, especially not just because they don't agree with and conform to another persons beliefs.

British Police are supposed to be impartial and swear an oath to uphold the law and act as custodians of the law. Yet they prance around waving rainbow flags in unison with a group of people of a particular sexuality.

I have nothing personal against homosexuals but the Police have lost their minds or else they are being used as a political stunt backed by a nefarious government and the evil European Union. People need to wake up to this blatant propaganda.

The Police have become a national joke and Sir Robert Peel who founded them must be turning in his grave. The Argus moderators can delete this post but freedom of speech will NEVER DIE.

Dressing up as a baby is a fetish which nobody bar a few bored mumsnet **** have ever condemned. Homosexuality was once illegal, and still is in some countries. People are being imprisoned, beaten and murdered for something they had no choice in, for something they cannot change even if they wanted to! That's why Pride is still important. We need to show other countries that equality is the best policy! :)

As far as the 'public indecencies' side of it goes I also can't stand the thought of men doing it in public. Fair enough a few decades ago when it was illegal to be gay and a LOT of men were in the closet and in sham marriages thus meaning the only places for them to meet were public toilets and bushes. These days it is not acceptable, we all have homes to do it in. And if not we shouldn't have ANY trouble finding someone with a home to do it in. I've never set foot on Dukes Mound with sexual intent and neither should any other man. It's just not necessary anymore!

You know what they say about arguing with fools? They will beat you with experience! It really worries me that people have such skewered, warped ideas about what gay people are like. I'm concerned for the children of these people who express such unsubstantiated views on gays. And news flash: most pedophiles are straight! Not gay! To say there is a correlation between being gay and being a pedophile is dangerous and moronic!

Try not to admit in public that you don't even have the intelligence to debate with fools.

The children of heteros will learn from experience what the gay 'community' in B&H is like.

No-one has claimed that all pedos are gay........but have a look at the appalling figures among the Catholic church ;-)

I am not that keen on homosexuality,gypsie

I could give reasons that may or may not seem logical to others,but they are my reasons and are as valid as anybody elses surely?

I left Brighton with my family 12 years ago and have never been back because in my opinion at the time, Brighton was going downhill and there were too many of the above factions.
I doubt that there are less now.
I don't miss Brighton and I doubt that it misses me.
Spain and its culture suits me far better.

No, you're not a bigot when you can explain why you hate whatever it is you hate.

My negative views on gays/muslims/scroung
ers./travellers/mult
iculturalism/ etc can all be explained by my observance of reality.

I love Brighton, but that is diminished by the actions of low-life scum who seem to delight in their squalour and filth.

I'm currently on my third holiday in Spain in a village untainted by commercialism. I love the way of life here enjoyed by the Spanish. They are family-orientated, respectful, friendly - everything that the real English used to be......and no-one brags about their orientation.
