Trans Pride Brighton – streaming to 50,000 viewers

I’ve spent the past 7 months working with Trans Pride Brighton to organise their first ever livestream Pride event. Trans Pride Brighton has been going since 2013 and is the largest Trans Pride event outside the USA. This year’s online festival showcased the work of trans, non-binary and intersex performers and activists to an audience of 50,000 people. We even made it onto the Twitch homepage!

You can read our manifesto, and an overview of Zoom’s privacy and security violations, on Medium.
