Zalfie, burping pop stars and rainbow dogs: Here’s why Brighton Pride is the best place on earth

Some experiences you just never forget and one of them is Brighton Pride. We’re a million percent sure that it’s the happiest, most free and most love-filled day in the world and that’s something that everybody should grab a piece of at least once in their life. But don’t take our word for it. Here’s why everybody’s going crazy over Brighton Pride:

1. The Parade

From cheeky to emotional to downright insane, Brighton Pride parade is a sight to behold

2. The outfits

The imagination of some people is literally unbelievable. You have to be so creative to put some of these costumes together… and brave to wear them all day in the blazing sun.
