To celebrate Brighton Pride’s big birthday this weekend, we’ve decided to revisit some of the festival’s most iconic moments from the past 25 years.

Some 160,000 people are expected to line the streets of Brighton and Hove for the 25th annual Pride event later, the organisers have said.

The parade, including dance troupes, drag queens and campaigning groups and other organisations such as Sussex Police, will start at Hove Lawns.

The colourful procession, which began at 11:00 BST, will arrive in Preston Park in a couple of hours.

Brighton DJ Fatboy Slim will be playing in the Wild Fruit dance tent in Preston Park, and the cabaret tent will be hosted by Lola Lasagne.

Other acts appearing include The Human League, Ruby Rose and Ella Henderson.
