ORGANISERS of Brighton’s biggest party have revealed what the theme of next year’s event will be.

The UK’s biggest Pride festival is encouraging revellers to take part in “a fantastic and fabulous celebration of who you are” with the theme of “Fabuloso”.

This year’s event saw tens of thousands of people take to the streets to mark 50 years since the 1969 Stonewall Inn uprising that ignited the Pride movement.

An array of colourful outfits were on show as revellers lived up to the fitting theme, “Generations of Love - Celebrating 50 years of campaigning with Pride”.

For next year's festival organisers have worked with trans activist Fox Fisher to create new branding and say it will incorporate “representation from all our diverse communities”.

A spokesman said: “Fabuloso will set the fantastical tone for our infamous, annual Pride LGBTQ+ Community Parade, which features an array of city charities, community groups, local businesses, blue light services and official Brighton and Hove Pride partners.

“This free and much-loved colourful carnival of diversity will kick start Saturday’s festivities and lead the way to our main community fundraising event at Preston Park.”

The weekend of performances at Preston Park was headlined by Kylie Minogue this year.

This year "Fabuloso: Pride in the Park" will take place on the weekend of August 1 and 2, and will again host main stage attractions as well as other established attractions such as the Legends Cabaret Tent, Queer Town, the BAME stage and dance tents.

Organisers have also promised several “new, diverse and immersive experiences” with visitors told to expect “Queer theatre, spoken word, political speakers’ corner, pop and alternative cabaret, the trans Fabuloso stage and Sundays community day featuring Queer artists and performers who span the 30 year period since Brighton and Hove Pride began”.

The popular Pride Pleasure Gardens in Old Steine and the Pride Village Party in Kemp Town will return on Friday, July 31.

A spokesman said: “Alongside the weekend festival, various events will take place across the city in the lead up to Brighton and Hove Pride including a 30 Years of Queer exhibition at Jubilee Library and a host of soon to be announced diverse cultural experiences, supported by the Pride Cultural Development Fund.

“For all you hound-lovers out there, rest assured, the Pride Community Dog Show will also return for fun and frolics at Preston Park in the weeks leading up to the main event.”
