Deborah Espect, festival director of FilmPride, said: “We’re very excited to be returning to We Are Fabuloso for Brighton and Hove Pride and thrilled to be also screening a selection of our films at Duke’s at Komedia and The Ledward Centre.

“We have films in every genre including a special showcase of LGBTQIA+ horror short films on a range of topics, made by independent filmmakers from all corners of the world.

“We’re celebrating all aspects of queer life our passions, our fights, our struggles, our unity and differences.

“And to make our festival more accessible, all our films have English subtitles and a BSL interpreter will be present to sign our introductions and Q&As with filmmakers.”
