Ribbon Dancer by ash Ribbon Dancer by ash
Dougbtn suggested we go to Brighton Pride, a gay and lesbian festival, to photograph the fairies. So I whipped out the trusty neopan and provia (trannies on trannies, you might say) and caught the train down to Brighton. The weather was a bit grey when I left London but Doug assured me "it's always sunnier in Brighton". Sure enough, five miles out of Brighton the sky darkens and we hit the rain, it's lashing it down. Like the slacker I am I skulked around in the town center drinking cocktails until the sun came out, so to speak. I ended up getting to the carnival at about four in the afternoon, having escaped the rain but not the mud. There were still probably five to ten thousand people there, and the light, as you can see, was fantastic. Ended up having a great time as well as managing to take the occasional pic. This shot was taken in the early evening.

impromptu naked lesbian mud wrestling huh? And ash skulked about town for the afternoon? Now I'm disappointed not only in that I wasn't there, but that ash possibly missed this!!! :D (Big Grin) ;) (Wink)

I can only assume that Ash brought the rain with him as it was fine until 10 mins before he arrived. See Ash, we always look after friends, it was really nice to see you, sorry I didnt have the foresight to bring wellies for you. The snatch squads tried to drag Ash off for an orgy but they were fought off valiantly. Next time you'll have to stay for the (very long) parties after ;-) (Wink)

All these shots are lovely. I cat wait until we all get our impromptu naked lesbian mud wrestling shots back rofl
