Germany: The city of Munich celebrates Gay Pride
Another German city celebrated Gay Pride with gusto this weekend.
Munich’s 34th Pride celebration, Christopher Street Day (CSD), took place from 12-20 July, finishing with the main pride march held last Saturday.
Munich CDS is the third largest in Germany after Berlin and Cologne, with an average attendance between 8-10,000.
The first celebration of CDS in Munich took place on 28 June 1980.
Since 2000 socio-political associations Rosa Liste, Sub, LeTra and Münchner Aids-Hilfe have organized and sponsored the event.
Stuttgart, Hamburg, Amsterdam and Stockholm will hold their pride celebrations over the remainder of July.
