5 Reasons Why We’re Celebrating Brighton Pride
1. We’re Brighton Born and Bred
As a Brighton-based business, with genuine Brightonians in our team, we love anything that celebrates our amazing city. Brighton just ain’t like anywhere else and we feel that our LGBTQ+ community is a big part of that.
2. We support LGBTQ+ Rights
Yep, we believe that love is love no matter your gender. We’re all individuals, we’re all different and yet we’re all part of a global community that needs to work together to make the world better for all of us. Brighton Pride is part of that; Brightonians coming together to show their support and belief in equal rights for those who identify as LGBTQ+.
3. We think it’s important to highlight discrimination
It’s a sad thought that the LGBTQ+ community still faces so much discrimination globally, even at home here in Brighton. Well, it shouldn’t be ignored. Highlighting the discrimination that people face is the first step in putting a stop to it. Some of the destinations we send travellers to don’t exactly have squeaky clean records when it comes to LGBTQ+ discrimination. In fact in some, it’s still illegal.
4. We believe we can help
So why do we sell destinations that discriminate the LGBTQ+ community? We believe that boycotting places because of their views doesn’t change anything. For us, travel is all about broadening your mind – we’re firm believers that interacting with local people in a meaningful way broadens their minds as well as our own. We believe that through meaningful travel experiences, we can make the world a little better for everyone.
5. We love a good party
Yeah alright, this is a pretty big draw for us! We really do love a good celebration, with plenty of music, dancing and, er, just a few drinks. Ahem. Now, whose round is it?
