RISE in the Pride parade for the first time!

On Saturday 5th August we took part in our very first Pride Parade.

undefinedRISE arching at the Pride parade in Brighton 2017.

RISE staff took to the streets of Brighton with local colour guard dance troupe, the Southern Knights.

It was a great success and RISE was greeted by huge cheers, and even a thank you hug from a spectator! 

We’d like to say a huge thank you to the Southern Knights and their fabulous flags, which made us and our pink banner easy to spot on the BBC News and Channel 4 News!

The Southern Knights are a Performing Arts, Colour Guard and Cheerleading organisation based in Brighton & Hove.

They are one of the largest and most successful colour guards in the UK and have won 22 national titles, so it was a real honour to walk the 12,000 steps of the parade with them!
