DISABILITY PRIDE BRIGHTON 2021
Very sadly, for obvious reasons, along with other Disability Pride organisations, we have not been able to have a Disability Pride festival in 2021. They have all been such wonderful days, enjoyed by thousands of people, and we are sure that, at some time in the future, we will all be able to get together again. In the meantime, we hope that everyone is well and enjoying the summer months. Take care.
Please note that the Disability Pride 2020 Online Festival now showing is the Final Broadcast Version. However, there will also be a BSL interpreted and audio described version out soon because we feel it is essential that our events are accessible to ALL. We would like to thank the People’s Health Trust for their sponsorship. Here is link to the TV programme above.

Every disabled person knows how difficult, stressful and exhausting it is to complete PIP forms manually.
If you feel it would be far less stressful to be able to complete PIP forms online, please SIGN and SHARE this petition http://chng.it/tPFt5sPG

Today will be the First Broadcast Version of the Disability Pride Brighton 2020 Online Festival. It will be shown on Latest TV from 12 noon to 2.30pm and again at 2.30 to 5pm. You can also watch it on livestream on Latest TV and it will be put on our website as well as on Latest TV’s website.
We are calling today’s programme the First Broadcast Version because, although the film is not yet quite perfect, we still wanted to be able to show it to you on Sunday, 12th July, which was the planned date of our live festival.
The vast majority of it is subtitled but we have not been able to subtitle absolutely everything due to time constraints and some technical difficulties. There are also some teeny revisions needed.
As you probably know, we have always had British Sign Language performance interpreters at our festivals and haven’t they been amazing? That’s why we are disappointed that we have not been able to accomplish this so far, mainly because of social distancing.
There will be a Final Broadcast Version shown after we have worked on the revisions and all the subtitles next week but it still won’t include the BSL interpreters.
However, we absolutely promise that there WILL be a BSL interpreted version as well an an audio described version as soon as we can possibly achieve it.
There will be links to all the wonderful speakers, performers and organisations on our website and Facebook page tomorrow so you can find out more about the people involved in the film.
We will also be holding a Facebook watch party (woohoo!) in the next couple of weeks so that we can all watch it together.
Anyway, it is still an absolutely fabulous TV show which has been so much fun to make and I would like to thank every single one of the contributors or supporters very merry (merry?! – it’s not Christmas!) – very much.
Thank you, sleep well, keep safe, and remember that you are all truly amazing!
