“But why do you need…”

[cw transphobia… and cis LGB people's abandonment issues?]

If you want to know why Trans Pride Brighton exists (and why our protest march was not a "parade", as PinkNews chose to describe it in spite of it being presented right from the outset as a protest march) then you need look no further than the comments on the PinkNews article about the march (the article itself is otherwise fairly innocuous).

A parade of angry cis men calling us names and whining about us "getting to have" our own pride event which we created ourselves without corporate support. These toxic comments are such a perfect illustration of why we needed our own Pride, and these commenters are a beautiful self-parody, thank you and good night.
