Trevor Edwards, has been recruited onto the Pride in Brighton & Hove team as Parade and Messaging Project Officer. Trevor comes with considerable experience as he has been working with Pride London since 2005, and their Chief Steward for the past two years.
Trevor was one of six strong applicants to respond to Pride’s advertisement to oversee this year’s Pride Parade and messaging. He will be working alongside Pride’s home team and the lead trustees for the parade and volunteers and starts immediately.
Commenting Pride chair Robert Clothier said: “This is a brilliant appointment and considerably strengthens our team. He starts immediately and will hit the ground running. He brings significant experience from our London cousins and, as a Brighton resident understands only too well the importance of the parade and the messaging to the LGBT community and the city as a whole.”
Trevor Edwards said: “This was such a great opportunity and I am relishing the challenges ahead. We will want to make sure that the Pride and (No) Prejudice themed parade is worthy of Pride’s coming of age birthday.”
