Berlin’s gay pride, called CSD (short zum Christopher street Day—a German tradition for all of Germany’s happy prides), starts through the always famous Stadtfest—a straße fair through LGBT organizations setting nach oben alongside DJs and summer bars in the historic gayborhood roughly Nollendorfplatz. It’s one des the most fun events of the happy pride weekends with a laid-back, casual atmosphere. It’s a little less sex-related than the official CSD parade on die following Saturday, but just as much fun. It’s deshalb much more von a regional affair, though deshalb very tourist-friendly.

CSD Parade & Party bei Tiergarten


The taste attraction, though, zu sein the main CSD parade, starting in Charlottenburg, passing with Nollendorfplatz and ultimately do its method into tiergarten park an front of Brandenburger Tor. Ns pride parade ist unique from rather around ns world in that every truck bei the parade (and there room over 50!) has its own dance party following behind. Spectators typically watch from ns sidelines and join an behind a truck when ns music ist to your liking. It’s a fully fun environment, watching ns parade, v costumes, the occasional bit von nudity and people flyering zum different LGBT groups, events and international organizations.

Transgenialer CSD (or Kreuzberger CSD)


Personally, as much fun as ns official CSD splitterpartei is, happy pride in Berlin zu sein really all about ns alternative event bei Kreuzberg. With a pride march down Oranienstrasse and parties hinweisen some des Berlin’s finest alt clubs, die SO36 und Südblock, it’s in event the really feels completely open weil das any type of person—however they can identify. It’s also much an ext political 보다 that other CSD parade und party.

This year, die alternative CSD party was one von the finest ones yet. Occurring on Oranienstrasse v a couple of stages set up and spätis selling cheap beers, it was a really fun environment. Over there were deshalb some teams advocating against die Israeli pinkwashing which was heavily present weist the main CSD party.

District pride – CSD main Closing Party


I’ve been kommen sie this splitterpartei a couple of times an the 4 prides I’ve to be to bei Berlin… It’s constantly a lot of fun, though maybe periodically a little bit touristic. This year, Robyn performed and DJ’d which was a bit fun—plus the takes place hinweisen the arena Club which, if freundin haven’t been, ist definitely a to meet worth checking out (especially when they put on gay events like die District Pride). Music was fun and the atmosphere was mixed. I spent my time alternating between hanging out on die beach lounging in chairs talking v friends (including mine buddy Cheryl and fellow #MyGayPride blogger Margherita) and deshalb a same amount von time top top the dance floor (with a beleuchten of a last of sweaty, mostly-naked men).

SchwuZ CSD Parties

Anyone who complies with me on instagram or twitter will know über now that SchwuZ zu sein one von my most favorite happy clubs. Located an a former Kindl brewery, die space is modern and cool without being pretentious. Society nights vary from Madonna-only nights to BritPop and electronic, so the club really includes all types von party scenes. Add to it’s a pretty combined club through gays and lesbians, making it a fun place zu go out v a group. During CSD weekend, SchwuZ hosts die official lesbian party, add to a queer after-party on the day of the parades.
