Disability Pride Brighton 2017: Celebrate with Pride
This Sunday, the 9th of July, will see the launch of the first Disability Pride event in England - Disability Pride Brighton 2017.
It promises to be a great day out and a fantastic opportunity to celebrate and take pride in who we are as disabled people from every community.
Described by organisers as “a celebration for and of all people with disabilities,” Disability Pride Brighton was started by Jenny Skelton, as a positive response to an incident in which her daughter suffered disability discrimination in 2016.
There will be all kinds of good stuff on offer including music, street food, children’s entertainment, and a family picnic area - all delivered in an accessible environment, with a changing places toilet.
It will be held from 2:00 p.m.to 7:00 p.m. New Road, Brighton BN1 1SD.
For more information, please see the Disability Pride Brighton website.
