AN ACTIVIST who inspired Channel 4 TV series It’s A Sin will join the people this weekend to celebrate Pride.
Jill Nalder, Patron of Brighton-based charity The Sussex Beacon, will take part in the community parade on the charity’s Pride bus, which focuses on her commitment to the charity for over 30 years.
Her appearance follows the release of her new memoir, Love From The Pink Palace, which tells the story of her life and friends during the AIDS crisis.
At the height of the epidemic, Jill was supporting those who had contracted the virus, visiting AIDS patients in hospitals across London and taking part in fundraising campaigns to raise money to fund awareness and research projects.
Jill said: “I am very proud to be a Patron of The Sussex Beacon and very excited to join everyone on The Sussex Beacon Pride Bus.
“Having had a strong connection to Brighton for many years and knowing and loving more than a handful of its wonderfully colorful residents, I can’t wait to celebrate Pride in Brighton.”
The community parade, along with other Pride celebrations, returns to the city for the first time since 2019 after a hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Sussex Beacon, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, provides specialist care and support for people living with HIV.
