The riots that happened in Greenwich Village circa 1969 between homosexuals and police shook the world. Those quakes were felt in Germany as well, and within ten years, Berlin had Christopher Street Day. A slight departure from the Lesbian and Gay City Festival, this one focuses more on the political agenda of the LGBT community. It’s about diversity and the continual fight for equal rights in all regards. This is a remembrance and a celebration with floats, music, and a symbolic march that overtakes the city with pride.
