Best Pictures of Drag’on Boat Party at Brighton Marina for Pride Brighton News

PRIDE may have been canceled this year, but there was still a chance to celebrate.

A Drag’on Boat Party was held at Brighton Marina on Sunday, an afternoon of Pride fun.

Three well-known drag artists from Brighton performed live and there were performances by professional dance groups.

Andria Rudy, Events Consultant, said: “It was a really lovely event, it was so nice to see so many children and families there. It went incredibly well, we are very happy to the way it went and the weather even held up for us.

“It was a real community wellness event. They really are professional comedians, you know, the whole audience was bursting with laughter.”

Dave Lynn, star of the reality show Faking IT, hosted the party and was happy to perform in his hometown during Pride Month.

“Our own little pride,” he said. “After all it’s Brighton and who doesn’t love Brighton? It will be a really fun afternoon and I’m really excited to be able to work with my fellow drag artists.”

He was joined by fellow drag queens Portia De Fosse, a seasoned West End performer, and Snow White Trash, who came armed with his saxophone. Video: Andria Rudy RP.

Snow White Trash said: “Brighton Pride can be canceled but the pride lasts all year round and I can’t wait to celebrate in the marina.

“The day will be filled with music, song and dance and lots of lipstick and false eyelashes.”
