Our Pride season was kick-started by the first ever Hastings Online Youth Pride, which we took great pride in hosting and included a range of incredible acts including the awe-inspiring headliner, Travis Alabanza. If you missed it, Hastings Online Youth Pride is still available to watch here.
18th July saw the incredible Trans Pride Brighton’s Online Festival. Allsorts has had a presence at Trans Pride since the beginning and we can't wait to see everyone there again and be involved with Trans Pride 2021, when it is safe to do so.
We were very excited to participate in Brighton & Hove Pride’s spectacular summer digital festival (31st-2nd August), where we were highlighted in the Virtual Community Parade, and heard from two of our new Youth Presidents, and CEO Katie Vincent.
Although we have and will continue to wave our pride flags throughout lock-down, we will unfortunately see a drop in fundraising income due to the cancellation of the annual in-person pride festivals across Sussex. If you would usually attend Pride but couldn't this year as a result of COVID-19, please consider helping us by donating to Allsorts this pride season. Your generosity is deeply valued and goes a long way in supporting LGBTU+ young people at this difficult time.
We wish you all a fabulous, reflective and safe Pride Season and can not wait to see you all again at next years’ Pride Events!
