5 Ways To Celebrate Brighton & Hove Pride

Pride Flag blowing in the wind against a blue but cloudy sky

The annual Brighton & Hove Pride Festival is dedicated to uplifting the LGBTQ+ community and celebrating wonderful diversity. Widely considered to be one of the best pride festivals in the world, the colourful, fun event takes place in the vibrant coastal city during the weekend of 6-7 August 2022.

On GayAdultChat – the UK’s most popular gay phone chat line service – you can connect with genuine guys 24/7, and make plans to meet up at the Pride Festival.

Whether you’re gay and proud, exploring your sexuality, or supporting a LGBTQIA+ friend or family member, here are 5 ways to help get you into the spirit of love, joy and self-expression during this spectacular celebration…

  1. Educate Yourself

If you want to enjoy a fully immersive Pride experience, educating yourself about the origins and history of Pride is a great place to start.

Research the Stonewall Riots in Greenwich Village, New York, and learn all about the movement that paved the way for modern day LGBTQ+ rights.

Binge watch LGBTQIA+ movies, TV shows and documentaries, and read some of the popular non-fiction queer culture history books. Check out the most important pieces of literature, including The Gay Revolution: The Story of the Struggle (Lillian Faderman), We Are Everywhere (Matthew Riemer & Leighton Brown) and Transgender History: The Roots of Today’s Revolution (Susan Stryker).

  1. Attend Brighton & Hove Pride

Lots of cities all over the world host Pride parades during the official Pride Month of June, with additional celebrations held in July, August and September. The Brighton & Hove Pride Festival – to honour the fearless trailblazers of the gay rights movement and the LGTBQ+ community – has long become an iconic must-attend event.

The theme for 2022’s 30th anniversary Brighton & Hove Pride LGBTQ+ Community Parade is ‘Love – Protest – Unity’. The parade is the highlight of the weekend, and showcases an all-singing, all-dancing colourful carnival that is supported by many of the city’s community groups, charities and small businesses.

If you’ve made some new friends, on the UK’s busiest gay phone chat line service, you can arrange to hook up with them at the Pride Village Party in Kemptown. Have fun exploring the lively bars, venues and entertainment zones together, and enjoy performances by musicians, DJs, artists, and outrageous and flamboyant drag queens. Whilst you’re immersed in the real sensory experience of Brighton & Hove Pride, you’re likely to rub shoulders with 300,000 people, including famous celebrities and influencers.

If you’re not able to attend the unmissable event, you can always host your own at-home Pride Festival. Get together with family and friends for a ‘Love – Protest – Unity’ themed party. Hang up colourful decorations, serve tasty rainbow coloured finger foods and cocktails, and turn up the volume of your favourite disco anthems.

  1. Support LGBTQIA+ Arts & Culture

Another great way to develop an understanding of the LGBTQ+ experience is through the medium of arts and culture. You can visit an LGBTQIA+ art gallery or museum, watch a marathon of influential movies, and read and discuss queer current affair topics that reflect on the evolution of Pride and what it symbolises for all people, with your friends.

  1. Become An Ally

Not everyone in the LGBTQIA+ community has experienced the expression of sexuality as a positive milestone life event. Loved ones don’t always respond in a supportive and nurturing way to a declaration that they may find surprising, confusing or uncomfortable.

To celebrate and honour Brighton & Hove Pride, consider sharing your personal experience with others who may be going though an emotionally charged time. You can become a LGBTQIA+ ally by getting involved with a community organisation or cause that you care about. Donate your time and energy by volunteering, or commit to raising money for the Brighton Rainbow Fund and Pride Social Impact Fund.

  1. Connect With Like-Minded People

You don’t have to miss out on the fun, if you live quite a distance from Brighton and are not able to attend the iconic Pride Festival this year. Connect easily with like-minded people via phone or text. Once you create a profile on GayAdultChat you can flirt and enjoy live 1-2-1 gay chat with thousands of real men all over the UK.

During the weekend of 6-7 August 2022, send flirty messages to every hot and horny gay, bi-curious and straight guy who catches your eye, and explore the possibilities. The more messages you send, the quicker you’ll be able to fill up your personal dating voice mailbox. As the service is private and totally anonymous, you can let go of inhibitions and fully express your sexuality, and sexual desires.

Top Tips On How To Text Guys

Man lying down smiling and texting

What with being stuck at home, we’re having to find new ways to date and get to know people.

If you’ve never tried it before, text chat can be a great way to get to know guys, and now you’ve got all this spare time, what else are you going to do?!

Here are our top tips on texting guys and getting that conversation started.

Don’t leave it ages between messages.

We’re not saying you need to reply as soon as you receive the message, you don’t want to seem overly keen! But just reply as and when you have a moment to sit and read what you’ve received.

Try and keep on top of your spelling and grammar.

You might not thing it’s important, but they might. If you’re really paying attention to what they’re saying and putting effort into your replies, they’ll know, and it’ll get you in their good books!

You can still flirt!

Even though the conversation is written down rather than face to face, you can still be cheeky and flirty. This is a good time to be using emojis so they know what your intentions are!

Text them first.

When you get up in the morning, maybe whilst you’re having your cuppa or eating your toast, send them a quick message to say you hope they have a nice day. It means a lot and will open up the communication channel for the day.

Don’t ghost them.

Vanishing off the face of the earth is one of the worst things you can do! Apart from being upsetting, it lacks respect for the other person. If you’re not feeling it and don’t want to take things further then do the right thing and tell them. (You don’t need to be rude, though!).


If you’d like to put these into practice with some new guys, then join our great text chat now!

Why Is Talking On The Phone So Beneficial For Your Relationship?

It doesn’t matter if you’ve only just met or if you’ve been together for years, talking on the phone will always further your connection as a couple.

Our chatline is based around talking on the phone to other singles and we believe this is the best way to get to know someone before you meet them.

You can get a good idea of their sense of humour and what makes them tick. You can hear their tone of voice so you’re more likely to be able to get your point across and have a decent conversation.

You’ll also get immediate replies if you’re chatting one-to-one, rather than having to wait ages for them to text back!

Hearing someone’s voice is a big part of how attractive you find them. Voices are very personal and you’ll get a much better idea of someone by talking to them on the phone.

There’s also much less of a chance of what someone says being misinterpreted, which may cause friction and arguments, as you can immediately discuss it and put your point across much clearer than you would via a message.

If you would like to get chatting to singles in your area, call Gay Adult Chat today!
