The gay pride parade CSD has its origins in New York's
Christopher Street, the site of violence between customers in a gay
bar and raiding police in June 1969. To commemorate the social
'coming out' of gay and lesbian communities, huge street parties
and parades take place to celebrate a greater tolerance among the
public and to demonstrate self-confidence in their homosexuality.
Although a huge, colourful festival with hundreds of thousands of
participants, including heterosexual revellers, Event Date: 23 June 2012 Event Time: From 9:30am Website:www.csd-berlin.de
