Families will be welcome as Pride arrives in Bognor Regis tomorrow.
The first of the town’s events aimed at promoting, supporting and celebrating the diverse LGBTQ+ community and their relatives and friends is taking place at Legends on the pier.
Bognor Regis Post is the main sponsor of the event.
Its editor-in-chief, Adam Cunard, said: “I’m proud to sponsor the first Pride Bognor Regis.
“As a newspaper, we seek to represent all those who live in the town and this backing is a reflection of that approach.
“I hope as many people as possible go along tomorrow to have a good time – and that the event will go from strength to strength in future years.”
The free fun will begin at 2pm and carry on until 10pm.
Drag queens Cherry Liquor, Aura Jay and Danni Dior and Guests will be providing the entertainment suitable for all ages from 3pm until 7.45pm.
They will be followed on the stage at 8pm by the Elton John Red Piano Tour tribute with a repertoire of the famous entertainer’s famous songs.
As well as the performers, rainbow face art and hair colouring will be on offer to get everyone in the mood.
The organisers are also grateful for backing from Coastline bathrooms, kitchens and tiles, of Queensway, in Bognor Regis.
More details can be found on the Official Bognor Regis Pride Party on the Pier Facebook page.
Any late offers of help will be welcomed by the main organiser, Sarah Boote-Cook, on 07933 946537.
