Ist CSD, if everything fits

Gaypride Hamburg 2012

Zoe DelayThe CSD in Cologne this year yes fallen into the water and extreme for us a big letdown. The more important, then just run again that artificial turf costume in Hamburg.

Normally, I'm sure always alone, Only this year I had an escort Sheila – not only to Eating at Rach, but mainly just for the miles through Hamburg….sodenn because it would dry.

and it looked good in the morning, Sun was in my apartment and good cheer we got ready, the Gaypride Hamburg to rock.. I urge and drive at the end Sheila had to hurry, I know already, that we would be So come a little late, Beginning to talk clearly.

I had been thinking, we head to drive long series, then to stop and take a taxi, that would immediately determined… nix da. Instead, something else came. Drops. only a few, short time later and then faaaaaar gaaaaanz many… Quickly back into the car and let's see, whether we rankämen not closer.

We actually found a parking, near the parade route, where we could already hear the music, but rain amounts due to the deluge-like, did not dare coming from Hamburg heaven Us, get out. In Super… but the rain radar say positive about the future.

Something about 20 Minutes after the actual start CSD we make then so also on the way… in bright sunshine and perfect weather… The vagaries of the weather in Hamburg are already really weird. But I'm already used.

Somehow it seemed, that Eien lot of people this time had gone to Hamburg, have omitted the Köln due to weather this time, for there were many, many good costumes present and the, although I have not seen so many hamburgers this year and was only confirmed by images, that they were there… But otherwise I'm always there at the start 😉

I love it, run along the long row. The upbeat mood. Always busy and just great. Actually, I would like to have at Chapeau St. georg reingeschaut, but because the time was not enough somehow we wanted to keep our great place behind the American oldtimer the lesbian business women, the best attention and secured… at least better than the typical behind a truck.

A Propos (spell that right?) Trucks… A great compliment, this time has all the CSD shooed us no security, chased no Truck. It was a very good each of the two-legged and four-Seasoned. TOP!

As usual, the part was a bit boring after Saturn, on the other hand, the way Mönckebergstreet great again. Such a stop, there should be on each CSD. Between the manifest and the half-hour get-together with participants and pass Angew. This is always the time, to look, who else so there is time to get to know something more and something to talk.

We worked our ind time he slowly forward, schauten beautiful Priscilla vorbei beautiful Marci Starlette, Tatjana Taft and some other past and fulfilled course there countless photo requests… as it should be so.

Now relatively far forward in the train of the CSD was on its last leg towards Jungfernstieg and midestens from Kunsthalle was my task-especially that, Sheila gut zuzureden, let us create the path and I do not get… In fact, we reached the Jungfernstieg and could the smoking feet in enclosed VIP area set up something.

There was then not only free drinks but some nice entertainment, which you could not escape – even if you had wanted to, because it began shortly after reaching this VIP zone again, unwetterartigem with rain and gathered all the people under the umbrellas. chatted and waited for the Radiant Sun, further few minutes seemed again.

Weather conditions and CSD Made in Hamburg.

A quick into Portuguese quarter, something to eat and then off to Home Berlin.

Drag Queens unvarnished

Girls, what's gotten into you. Normally, yes is the best kept secret of a drag compared to the general public the actual appearance, times when it is not in the make-up and a guy is on the way. I know from experience, they are often not recognizable… at least until, until they open their mouth and you hear the familiar voice. So I realized Tatjana Taft in Cologne also only, as I imagined her with my name.

Well, but known to the media but still more from, as the big picture. Not to the story, but are seen from time to time on both images. No Fakedoku on the drag queen does not occur at least once as a guy and every time, when Olivia Jones's on TV, I see in my stats, that people of “Olivia Jones without makeup” search…

There is this voyeurism and as the Hamburg Morgenpost for this year's CSD has a lead story:Drag Queens: Thus we see privately made and at least fours times shown. So if the Double Faces Barbie stupit and Lee Jackson, completely unknown to me Christa Sun or just want to see Tatjana Taft ungeschmink, look today even in the Hamburg Morgenpost..

And while we're at it, there is equally a tip, namely a good contribution from the NDR, by not just a few words about FDP / CDU Vs. CSD loses, but then even Valery Pearl (fast) unvarnished look…

Oh, and Sheila and me shortly but in full make-up.

CSD Hamburg Photos

Before tomorrow an article CSD Hamburg 2012 write today come firstonce a pair CSD Hamburg pictures of this very changing weather Christopher Street Day. So much fun looking at.

Of wimps and World Champions

Even at the risk of, that Sheila will use exactly the same title as I, I am exactly this title for the coverage of CSD Cologne 2012 use:

Of wimps and World Champions.

Unfortunately, I have to admit but it, that we are among the first of the two possibilities. we are clearly wimps.

Rain repellent

This morning sometime as against 10 Clock in the morning we looked out the window and it was raining. But not as a bit, that is referred to in Hamburg also increased humidity, sondern eher so, that also in Hamburg “cats and dogs” referred. This brought a toe to keep out the unique info “Fuck, it is cold as a frozen pizza”

We deliberated, only once to take a frugal breakfast in our Ibis Budget hotel to us, then continue watching. It changed nothing. Rain, Rain, Cold and rain… so that was a rarity: A Vote, clearly 3:0 went out and testified: Fuck the CSD we do not. No coloring, not start running and especially no pneumonia.

Somehow it took us but then the route, to look a little, who else as the way in – then – Drought has taken it upon themselves, to accompany the CSD… and there were not many this time.

the organizers of this year should reflect the total number of 750.000 People proclaim, then that is a big lie, because it was pretty empty this year. Samantha Cocain war da, the lady with the big hats and Tatjana Taft…

The latter had also left the actual Dalmatians fumble in the hotel and brought out a small weather-proof as possible Costume, in which hardly anything to be lost. But she was in good spirits, because the few investment brought her arguably the highest level of press. She was a world champion.

We Face cloth Wimps, however, stood at the roadside, which has something of mortification at CSD Cologne. At times likely to stick to my planned costume that be something like, as when driving as the third goalkeeper to the World Cup. One is in the vicinity of, has taken the same amount of effort on and has to watch from the stands bustle. really really unpleasant something like.

In addition, that you can not even shoot decent pictures. If you as a drag on the go, one is always sure of any attention, also those, you just want to capture on photo. Than “Uninvolved” on, Interested in one side of the road do not give a damn – if you don't have a Nikon with a mega telephoto lens 🙂 I know that from my own experience … experience on both sides.

Our spirits rose only a little, when it started to rain and we were really cold even with jacket… That was the time, as was clear and, that do not participate was the right choice… even if I then remembered against Tatjana no good excuse.
