Where to celebrate Gay Pride 2019 in Germany

2019 marks 50 years since the Stonewall uprising when homophobic police attacks at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich, Manhattan, spurred disputes over the persistent discrimination of homosexuals in the United States.

The protests, opposed to significant socio-cultural and political transformations in the form of civil rights and anti-cultural movements of the 1960s, gathered momentum and cultured the formation of the International Gay Rights Movement, now known as Gay Pride.

50 years after this turnaround, Pride events are pursuing global protests as well as celebrations.

Celebrations of pride in Germany are commonly referred to as Christopher Street or CSD, in a memorial to the street where Stonewall Inn stood. For certain German cities, in 2019 it marks 40 years since their first celebration. On June 30, 1979, the Genoese Freedom Day was held on June 30, 1979 in Berlin and Cologne.

Pride is a celebratory occasion. However, the always important fight and message behind the event should not be forgotten.

While Germany considers broadband and same-sex marriage legalized in 2017, attacks on open gay people in Germany have risen by one-third of 2018. Moreover, even though there was a call for banning, gay conversion therapy remains legal in Germany. As such, the Pride in Germany will focus on political protest as well as at the ceremony.
