Disability Pride Brighton ran for its second year on Saturday 14th July 2018 with the amazing Alison Lapper, the Mayor of Brighton & Hove, Councillor Dee Simson and Chair of Disability Pride, Jenny Skelton, opening the event. Disability Pride Brighton started in July 2017 by Jenny Skelton after one of her daughters suffered an upsetting incident of disability discrimination the previous year.
Speak Out and Thumbs Up had a stall at the fantastic event and even managed to be on TV! The sun was shining and everyone has such a great day listening to the live music, the wonderful speeches and watching all the performances.
Anyone who has a disability or impairment and their friends, unpaid carers, professionals and allies are all welcome to this event – see you all there next year!
