Christopher Street Day

Christopher Street Day, or CSD for short, is an annual parade celebrating the LGBTI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex) community. On this day people demonstrate for the rights of the LGBTI community and against discrimination.

The CSD, or Gay Pride as it is known in non-German speaking countries, has its origins on Christopher Street in the Greenwich Village district of New York. On June 28th 1969, after many years of arbitrary raids, transgender people, gay people and drag queens rioted in protest against these police raids. One year later the Christopher Street Liberation Day Committee was founded and hosted the first commemoration day.

Since then, parades and festivities are held each year in many cities around the world, mostly during the summer months. The biggest parades in Germany are in Berlin (28th July) and in Cologne (8th July).

In Cologne, the CSD parade is the highlight of a two-week programme called Cologne Pride including concerts and street festivals. The parade on Sunday will feature many floats and around 30,000 participants and will attract approximately 800,000 visitors.
