Trans Pride is celebrating it’s fifth birthday this year, and organisers have estimated more than 2,500 people took part in the flagship march.

Green Party Co-Leader Caroline Lucas tweeted her support to the event, following a solidarity message from Green MEP Keith Taylor:

Other Green Party figures were present at yesterday’s events, including Convenor of the Green Group on Brighton & Hove City Council, Phelim Mac Cafferty and the Green Party’s LGBTIQA+ spokesperson Aimee Challenor (both pictured above).

Trans Pride is a charity based in Brighton & Hove run by volunteers, which organisers a series of events in pursuit of trans liberation, as well as the annual Trans Pride protest march. Protesters braved braving the rain, and throughout the rest of the day were addressed by speakers, poets and musicians.
