Brighton Pride: My August Photo #25

This photo was taken right at the beginning of the month at Brighton Pride, the annual festival celebrating equality and diversity amongst the LGBT community. This was taken during the colourful community parade. It started by the seafront and headed all the way through Hove into central Brighton, the streets coming alive with excitement and community spirit. It was a great day and already feels like ages ago even though it was at the beginning of this month. I included another photo of the parade for My August Photo #1 and this is one I had added to Instragram but not on the blog so here it is. It's easy to take these events for granted but we still need to fight for equality and diversity. Just a couple of weeks ago I witnessed a totally unprovoked racist attack on one of the Brighton buses. It's sad this still happens today especially in a multicultural town like Brighton. I'm a strong believer in equality though, let's live in hope and believe that one day it will be accessible for all. 

I'm posting a photo a day as part of #MyAugustPhoto. Have you got a photo you'd like to share? Come and link up :)
