The PHIL STARR PAVILION, New Steine Gardens, Brighton, BN2 1PB provides a fully functional stage, light and sound system with heating and Licenced bar.
This ground breaking affiliation seeks to engage the city in the wide range of issues highlighted through the work of the Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum, as well as partner/stakeholder work.
LGBT History Month is an international month-long annual observance of LGBT+History and the opportunity to commemorate and remember the bravery of those who campaigned and spoke out over the years to help us achieve the freedoms and equality we enjoy today.
B Right On Festival
The overall aim of this three week project in Brighton is to promote unity, equality and diversity for the benefit of the city.
This is done by:
Increasing the visibility of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (“LGBT”) people, their history, lives and their experiences in the curriculum and culture of educational and other institutions, and the wider community in a safe environment.
Raising awareness and advancing education on matters affecting the LGBT community and its allies.
Working to make educational, lawful and other institutions safe spaces for all LGBT communities.
Promoting the welfare of LGBT people, by ensuring that the statutory authorities recognise and enable LGBT people to achieve their full potential, so they contribute fully to society and lead fulfilled lives, thus benefiting society as a whole.
