2014 : 78 Countries : Freedom To Live


Pride & Hove is proud to stand beside the global community as we campaign for the Freedom To Live. Today in the UK, after decades of campaigning by the LGBT community, we finally have legal equality but across the globe there are still 82 countries where is criminalised.

For them there's no , no equal rights, no freedom for equal love. There is only beatings, rejection, state sanctioned persecution, prison sentences and, in some countries, the death sentence. This is a state of affairs we cannot stand by and watch. We must act as a global community and stand with solidarity with those in the 82 countries where homosexuality is a crime and say no more.

Now is not the time for hatred, now is the time for love. For the freedom to live as one chooses, regardless of sexuality or gender. Brighton & Hove Pride is a Pride with purpose, campaigning for the freedom to live. Stand beside as we stand beside those LGBT communities across the globe and help make equality a reality. Not some day, but today.
