Brighton Pride: Thousands flock to city for parade and music

Brighton Pride

Thousands of people lined the streets of Brighton during the Pride parade.

This year's event commemorates the 50-year anniversary of the Stonewall Inn uprising in New York, which ignited the Pride movement, while also recognising the ongoing campaigning work for equal rights.

With that in mind, this year's theme celebrates "Generations of Love".

Kylie Minogue is headlining the festival on Saturday with her end-of-tour finale, at Preston Park.

The colourful carnival took a revised route through North Road, for one year only, because of ongoing regeneration works in the city.
