Well, that was a day to remember! Natives Group employees coated themselves in glitter, sequins and sea-themed sass; joining thousands of others on the streets of Brighton to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community, as part of the Brighton Pride parade 2018.

This is the third consecutive year Natives Group (a Brighton born agency) have had a presence at Brighton Pride, raising money for a charity which is linked in some way to the LGBTQ+ community. This year we have raised, and will continue to raise, money for Mind, which is a mental health charity that supports people globally, as well as in Brighton. 

This year the Natives went for a sea-themed float, getting their underwater groove on as they pumped out iconic tunes (think RuPaul, Pink, Little Mix and Tina Turner); giving the people of Brighton a party to remember. The atmosphere was electric and it was great to see the city so busy, as communities came together to show their support and celebrate equality.  

Be sure to check out our Instagram page, where we shared what Pride meant to our employees, during the build-up. Anyways, here are the best bits from our Brighton Pride float!

Ok, here we go:

Happy Pride from Natives Group.
