Eastbourne Mardi Gras / Pride 2017

Photos from a spectacular LGBT+ friendly event

We had a really great time at the first ever Eastbourne Pride, it was an amazing day, very well supported despite the rather dodgy weather. We only stayed for a couple of hours, but so pleased that we went. I've been to Brighton Gay Pride many times and the Hastings Gay Pride launch party last year, but it was my partner Helen Kedward's first ever LGBT / Gay Pride event! :) With us we had our friend Karen and our dog Squid!!! Hope they have an even bigger and better Eastbourne Pride next year!!!

The event was supported by many local people and organisations including Wyntercon, Eastbourne Buzz, Stephen Lloyd MP, Pentacle Drummers, Stix Drummers, Bourne Out LGBT, East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust Recruitment, Eastbourne Police (Especially SC2935 who posed for so many photos!!!) and many, many others!!! A special hello to RachelBlackmoreblogsx and her friends who posed with Squid The Dog and of course Robbie C. Stedman who sat with us and posed for some great photos!

People appearing in these photos means they were at the event, it doesn't say anything about their sexuality, they may be part of the LGBT community, just straight supporters of them or even just people coming along to join the party!!!
