Supporting LGBT Young People at Brighton Pride

In 2022 Brighton Pride returned to the city, celebrating its 30th anniversary after two years of Covid cancellations. The huge event took place on a blazing-hot August day with the theme of Love, Protest and Unity. 300,000 LGBT people and allies from the city and all around the world packed the streets for the iconic parade and events. 

As ever TDC's Youth Team were present with a Youth Welfare station just outside Preston Park. The shady spot offered young people at Pride space to chill-out, charge phones and rest with their friends and was used by hundreds of young people out celebrating.

We also gave out essential supplies for a day out in the hot weather including free food, water, sunscreen, hand sanitiser and menstrual products. 16 of TDC's trained youth workers were also on hand, offering extra support if needed, helping to make the event more accessible and welcoming for LGBT young people experiencing this much-missed Brighton celebration. 


"A massive thank you. Can you be my new mum? This is so lovely. You're literally a lifesaver."
