Because of the corona pandemic, the 40th anniversary of the CSD in Hamburg could not be celebrated as planned last year. That should be made up for this year. For two weeks there will be under the motto “Keep on fighting. Together.” a diverse program.
Again a bike demo instead of a big parade
The opening gala “Pride Night” will start on July 24th at Kampnagel. A photo exhibition on the history of the CSD in Hamburg can be seen in the Levantehaus from August 2nd. On August 7th, the highlight will be a bicycle demonstration through downtown Hamburg. Due to the corona, this again replaces the otherwise usual large parade. More than 2,000 people took part in the bicycle demonstration last year.
The campaign “Hamburg shows the flag”, which calls for the hoisting of the rainbow flag, will also take place again. In addition, many discussions, roundtables and lectures are planned. The Hamburg Pride association lists all events below www.hamburg-pride.de.
Demo for the CSD in Hamburg since 1980
Christopher Street Day commemorates June 28, 1969, when police forces stormed the New York gay and lesbian bar “Stonewall Inn” on Christopher Street, triggering multi-day protests by gays, lesbians and transsexuals. The CSD aims to draw attention to the rights of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender, intersexual and queer people. Every year since 1980 people have taken to the streets in Hamburg to campaign for acceptance and equality of all sexualities and gender identities.
