Aesthetica Magazine sent this email to their subscribers on June 11, 2024.


 
It’s estimated that 2,000 people attended the UK’s first Pride march,
which was held in London on 1 July 1972. Today, Brighton & Hove Pride
is the largest parade in the UK, with nearly 500,000 taking part each year.
Events like this not only bring people together and celebrate how far we’ve
come, but also fight against discrimination and prejudice faced by the
community around the world, paving the way for a better future.
