    Wow, that's going to be a pretty full-on introduction to the place! I used to live there so know it pretty well, but funnily enough I've never been to Brighton Pride! Hopefully will be better than London, since they have the event in the park to go to.

    I WISH! I miss Brighton Pride. Look for my friend Stephen, he and his friends have a business called Buff Builders and they'll all be out!

    It will be packed everywhere, best bet is to just go to Old Steine & St James's St/Marine Parade area and check out what looks good! Doctor Brighton's on the Grand Junction Road (near Thistle Hotel Brighton) is usually a good bet if you're just looking for a pub, but as I said--expect queues!

    Well I haven't lived there in years, and never was much of one for the scene, but as far as Pride goes I am only planning on going to the park and then home, I'm not hitting the bars/clubs. I assume Revenge is still there, that was the bigger of the clubs, then there's a few nice bars along the seafront.

    Bear in mind the park isn't that close to the town centre/seafront though - you'll have to drive or get a train!

    Not necessarily, we walked from the park back down to the seafront--it's not all that far, less than half an hour.

    Yes, he and a few of his work-out partners realised they were all contractors (Stephen's an electrician, another is a plumber) so they do home reno projects in just denim cut-offs and hardhats! lol

    I did like the London pride though.

    Every Pride/Mardi Gras I ever went to was shit.

    A bit like NYE - big anti-climax.

    Besides which, I'm not proud of being gay. Not in the slightest bit ashamed, but definitely not proud.

    Actually, maybe I am a bit ashamed by muscle maries dancing about in broad daylight in tiny knickers with their bulges showing when there are kids about ... and dirty bastards getting up to all sorts in the trees behind the portaloos, again, in board daylight and, again, when there are kids about (that was Finsbury Park, '97 to be precise).

    Those were the days. Twenty quid to stand in a muddy field and watch Steps "perform"?

    No ta.

    To those who did, what was it like?
