Latest Group CIC, in partnership with Brighton & Hove Pride and supported by Peter Tatchell, are proud to present a fantastic new LGBTQ+ festival, FilmPride.
Brighton & Hove Pride is one of the biggest Pride festivals in the world, and The Guardian describes it as “The country’s most popular LGBT event”.
The Pride Arts, Culture and Film programme runs from 22nd July – 4th August 2019 and includes the Stonewall50 exhibition at the Jubilee Library, exhibitions by LGBTQ+ artists at the Black & Minority Ethnic Community Partnership (BMECP) Centre in Brighton as well as displays and installations across the city, and we’re thrilled that FilmPride will become an exciting new addition to this diverse programme.
FilmPride will run from Sunday 24th July to Sunday 4th August 2019 and will showcase some fantastic, not-to-be-missed events:
