Eastbourne’s first ever Pride event is being welcomed by the town’s MP.
Caroline Ansell believes the event being organised by Bourne Out LGBT in July next year, will be a boost for the Sunshine Coast.
Commenting, Caroline said, “Mardi Gras Eastbourne will be a colourful new event in the town in the summer season.
“I was in Parliament on the launch night, but I have been in touch with the organisers about their plans, which include live music in the park at the close of the Parade featuring an Abba tribute band – music that is one of my all-time favourites.
“This Mardi Gras positively reflects the diversity of our town and I'm sure it will be a success for all involved.”
