Come celebrate love of all kinds at Berlin’s fabulous and world famous
Gay Pride Parade and Festival: Christopher Street Day (CSD)!
The PRIDE PARADE takes place tomorrow, on SATURDAY, 28 JULY 2018 at 12:00.
Hundreds of thousands of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, trans*sexuals, trans*gender, intersexuals, other queers (LGBTTIQ*) and allies will be hitting the streets on 28 July 2018. What started out as a small, but impressive march with 400 participants decades ago has developed into a forceful political mass rally and a mighty beacon for freedom and human rights. According to the CSD website, there are 59 trucks and 49 walking groups in the parade this year who will pass out information, play great music, give away goodies and spread the love!
Don't miss this chance to show your support for the LGBTTIQ* community and to have a great time!
The parade route begins at Kurfürstendamm/Joachimsthaler Straße and ends up on Straße des 17. Juni between 15:00 and 17:00 in time for the rally at the main stage at the iconic Brandenburg Gate.
