Brighton and Hove Pride Unveils Branded Bus

Brighton Pride, in partnership with Brighton & Hove Buses, have unveiled the first officially branded Pride Bus.

Now in general circulation and daily use all around Brighton, you can ride the Pride bus on a variety of routes across the city.
The bus honours local legend, drag queen and fundraiser Phill Starr, who passed away in October 2005..

Phil performed on stages across the world for more than 50 years and also raised thousands of pounds for charity. His last show was at the cabaret bar Legends, in the New Europe Hotel, Marine Parade where he had also been the first performer 14 years earlier.

Paul Kemp, director of Brighton Pride said, “We are thrilled that Brighton & Hove buses have joined other prominent City businesses to support Pride in our City in this our 25th Anniversary year. This is just the start of an ongoing relationship that includes a dedicated bus and shuttle service from the Pride campsite as well as exciting all year round promotional activity with the Pride bus.

Nick Hill, Head of Commercial Development for Brighton & Hove Buses said, “We are proud to promote diversity in this vibrant, wonderful city and are delighted to help celebrate 25 years of Pride in such a colourful way.”

Brighton Pride is held on 1 August. Tickets are available online.

Libby is a 30-something Londoner, who spends more time reading picture books than is seemly. She became a bi activist entirely by accident, but now she can't imagine living any other way. In the event of an emergency, she'll have a large gin and tonic, thanks.
