University of Sussex : The Brighton Pride

University of Sussex flies the flag for Brighton Pride

A rainbow flag flew on the University of Sussex's campus to mark the University's partnership with this year's Brighton Pride festival.
Brighton & Hove Pride festival is an annual celebration of the city’s LGBTQ+ community.
A rainbow flag was flown in May on the University of Sussex campus to mark the fact that the University is an official partner of the 2017 Brighton & Hove Pride festival.
Brighton & Hove Pride festival is an annual celebration of the city’s LGBTQ+ community, and is one of the major events in Brighton’s calendar.
Adam Tickell, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sussex, said: “The University has always valued diversity and equal rights.  Thankfully much has changed in the past fifty years since homosexuality was decriminalised, however issues of equality still exist today.          
“We’re supporting Brighton Pride because we stand for what Pride stands for – we both want to change things.”
The University celebrated its partnership with Pride by flying a rainbow flag and handing out rainbow‑coloured gifts as part of the annual ‘Deadline Day’ celebrations, when final-year students traditionally hand in their coursework.
Sussex alumni, staff and students will be joining the festivities on 5 August, and the University will have a float in this year’s Pride parade.
If you would like to ride on the float, walk in the parade or help out on the day, please contact the Events team on events@sussex.ac.uk. Limited spaces are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
