CSD Berlin Pride is organising its first hybrid demonstration through Berlin on 26th June. CSD-Berlin pride sees itself as a political demonstration which gives visibility and space to the different, diverse and varied LGBTQIA+ community which has lived in Berlin for decades.
There will be three demos – East PRIDE which starts in Prenzlauer Berg, QTIBIPoC United: Reclaiming Pride in Kreuzberg and Queerschutz Now! In Neukölln. With diverse focal points and routes, we want to offer all members of the Community to sow their diversity and bid farewell to the ideas that one institution has the monopoly over the orientation of a CSD-Pride demonstration.
EAST Pride begins at 11 o’clock at the Gethsemane church in Prenzlauer Berg an evangelical service of worship and will concentrate on the lesbian and gay movement in the DDR. From 1pm, the route will pass through Danziger Straße, where the second clerical working group in East Berlin – the „Gesprächskreis Homosexualität“- was based.
The organisers of the Neukölln route Queerschutz Now want to make the desolate situation of LGBTQIA+ infrastructure visible. There will also be a focus on the situation of the T* community. This will be addressed by contributions from the club scene, culture and gastronomy.
The demo QTIBIPoC United: Reclaiming Pride is organised by actors in the QTBIPoC community. It will also start at 1pm in Kreuzberg and will focus on anti-racism and queerfeminism.
The marches will arrive at different times and places between Strausberger Platz and Alexanderplatz until 6pm. The demo is only possible under strict adherence to hygiene and distancing rules. You can find detailed information about the routes, programme and hygiene measures on the CSD Berlinpride homepage,
