01It Was Too Hot20200802The first of two short stories specially written to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Brighton and Hove Pride.

Brighton and Hove Pride's theme for this year’s online-only festival is Fabuloso - a fantastic and fabulous celebration of who you are. The schedule will be tied together by live presenters from a purpose built studio in Brighton and will feature performers and highlights that were already planned for Pride In The Park as well as archive footage of iconic acts from past years.

1: It Was Too Hot by Lesley Sharp
Veronica (Ronnie) reluctantly accepts Stephanie's invitation to join the Moss family's Pride Pool Party. Her first impressions reinforce her reservations, but Ronnie hasn't bargained on finding first love over a bag of spilt cherries.

Fidget by Colin Bytheway
Janet hasn't seen Luke for 9 years and is hoping to catch a glimpse of her son in Brighton at the annual Pride Parade - a pilgrimage she makes every year. Friendly octogenarian Roy is in the crowd and offers to keep an eye out too. They become friends and, as Roy's health gradually deteriorates, he encourages Janet to enter Fidget in the Pride Dog Show. Fun and distracting though this is, will it help her to find Luke? Surprisingly, the answer will come over a pot of Earl Grey tea.
