Christopher Street Day - Pride Parade - Berlin - Germany

German Gay Pride Festival!

An annual LGBT celebration in downtown Berlin, the Christopher Street Day (CSD) Parade attempts to promote the rights of LGBT people. The history of the Parade's inception goes back to the "Stonewall Riots" during the late sixties on Christopher Street in New York's Greenwich Village. Held on the last Saturday of June every year, this event, while always serving as a memorial to those affected by the riots, is also a major celebration.

Berlin: The Biggest and Best!

The Christopher Street Day Parades typically consist of floats and walking groups, usually represented by members of the various LGBT organizations. Quite joyous and upbeat, the party tends to have a positive energy to it. It should also be noted that this has been the largest Gay Pride street party since 1993 and is just one of four major gay festivals held throughout the year: Kreuzberg Pride, Berlin Pride, Easter in Berlin, and Folsom Europe.

As part of the larger Berlin Gay Pride Festival, local hotels fill-up fast and it is recommended that you reserve a room as early as possible. Costs are always a concern for event ssuch as this and you may want to book your accommodations a little further out from the downtown core and take public transit into the city. For city guides and schedules, please visit "http://www.timeout.com/berlin/".

Boasting hundreds of thousands of attendees, the Parade starts at Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse and ends four miles later at the Seigessäule. Get there early, bring your sunscreen and be ready to party!

EVENT ATTITUDE TO NUDITY:

Various types of nudity seem to be tolerated by the local authorities and toplessness is generally the norm. Bodypainting and sheer costumes are common with some leather and fetish-type costumes revealing a little more here and there.

EVENT ATTITUDE TO CAMERAS:

The parade and celebration mainly takes place on Berlin's city streets, so the expectation of any privacy is minimal. That being said, try to ask for permission if you're up close to anyone.
