The Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum (LGBT CSF) will be joined by the Village Metropolitan Community Church this year to deliver some of the activities taking part within the Access Tent/Area for Accessibility Matters at Brighton Pride.
Free activities will include art workshops, card readings, temporary tattoos, and trained helpers if anyone needs a listening ear.
Billie Lewis, Volunteer Chair of the Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum said, “We are delighted that The Village MCC are working with us this year at Pride. They were instrumental in the delivery of the Soul Sundays during our B.Right.On Festival at the Phil Starr Pavilion. Their experience and commitment to positive community development and cohesion is infectious and must be applauded.”
Rev Michael Hydes of the Village MCC said, “As a church rooted in the LGBT+ community, serving the LGBT+ community, we call for a world where we can all live free of discrimination. We believe that if we are to empower all of our community, and not just some of our community, that accessibility really does matter. The Village MCC is proud to be working with Accessibility Matters at Brighton Pride this year.”
The Brighton and Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum (LGBT CSF) works in partnership with Brighton Pride to facilitate all aspects of accessibility at Brighton Pride on Saturday 5th August 2017.
This will include the Access Tent and general access issues to Preston Park for the Deaf, elderly, disabled community.
