A collective rooted in music, intersectionality and art
We are dedicated to connecting the island diaspora from the Indian Ocean to the Caribbean and celebrating our ancestral heritage and culture in a safe space.
We aim to ignite conversation, awareness and draw attention to the details of intersectionality that often go unrecognised or forgotten. Run by Queer brown and black creatives in Brighton and London representing their Mauritian, Dominican, Jamaican, Brazilian roots, with the team ever growing, we are looking to use this space to create, teach and learn from one another in today's society.
Still not sure what we are about? Come to one of our events :)

BRIGHTON PRIDE 2022
Brighton Pride was an opportunity for us in so many ways. Pink Islands was started with the the intention to bring Mauritian culture to this event as a means of celebration of our lesser known identities. With COVID last year resulting in no Pride I became dedicated to creating a Queer party space in Brighton where we could enjoy our music instead. This year after being accepted to walk on the Brighton Pride parade representing Mauritius and with no funding and a very small team behind the vision I was ever more determined to see the impact that would be made once we had the platform to present ourselves to the (Brighton) world.
