Brighton, Hove and District Labour Party is looking forward to celebrating Brighton Pride which is such a special event in our calendar.  Equality is close to our hearts and we are proud of our record on fighting for equality and we remain determined to challenge discrimination where we find it.  We must also remember that in some parts of the world LGBT people are subjected to even greater persecution and injustice than that which was eradicated here a generation ago.

Labour is committed to strengthening the law on homophobic, biphobic and transphobic hate crime, tackling bullying in schools and working towards the decriminalisation of homosexuality worldwide.

 

Peter Kyle, MP for Hove said;

 

"As Hove’s first openly gay MP I’m proud to be able to represent the LGBT communities and show how far we have come and what we can achieve. I’m over-the-moon to be in a position to be able to be a loud and effective voice for all sections of the community and I will endeavor to continue to push forward boundaries and show the next generation that nothing is impossible. Enjoy Pride weekend – I hope it’s the best one yet."

 

Councillor Warren Morgan, Leader of Brighton and Hove City Council said;

 

"Under my leadership the city council will celebrate the LGBT contribution to the city year round, and work on ensuring all are safe, respected and included. Have a great Pride weekend and thanks to all those who make the weekend such a success.”

 

Nancy Platts, Chair of Brighton, Hove and District Labour Party said,

 

"I'm proud to join the Pride parade and my thoughts are with the LGBT communities in other parts of the world, where they are unable to enjoy the freedom to openly express their love and still have to win the fight for equal rights."

We are proud to live in a City that celebrates diversity and our trans community. No-one should be held back or discriminated against because of their sexuality or gender identity.

Despite the great strides we have made, there is more to do to ensure that equality is reflected across our society. For the trans community in particular, we need to go much further to stop transphobic bullying; we need to strengthen the law on transphobic hate crime and ensure gender identity is respected and supported in schools, workplaces and across society. The city council under Labour leadership will continue to take forward the work and recommendations of the Trans Scrutiny Panel, of which the new council leader Warren Morgan was a member.  The Labour Party are looking forward to joining the parade on Saturday to show our support and we wish our trans community a happy Pride event!

In reaction to the news that Brighton & Hove City Council has decided that the Brighton Wheel will not have its lease renewed, Councillor Warren Morgan, Leader of the Council and the Labour and Co-operative Group, said:

In my personal view, and as a councillor for the eastern part of the seafront, I would have hoped that there was room for two such attractions in Brighton and Hove, and the Wheel has become a familiar part of the Kemp Town skyline. However, lease agreements were signed under the last Administration and they must be respected.
