Glitter, a whistle, a rainbow flag – what does our Pride Parade mean?
A banner, a placard, a loudspeaker – what is there left to protest about?
Pink Fringe presented Parade Protest Perform, a performance trail through Brighton that sets the queer heart of the city beating across the Pride weekend. A rebellious dancer, a surreal performance artist, a living legend of queer theatre and an intellectual bearded drag queen are playfully provocative about what Pride means in 2011 in their own parade through the streets.
Co-produced with The Nightingale (nightingaletheatre.co.uk).
Supported by Arts Council England through the Grants for the Arts Scheme.
