Gay Pride Berlin

Corona year 2020

The typical CSD did not exist this year for corona reasons, that was clear long ago. According to the CSD e.V.. play everything on the net, because probably no demonstration would be approved anyway.

Now things are going well with Corona in Germany and demonstrations are allowed again – and besides weird “Hygienedemos”, Attila Hildmans and other strange people extremely important and probably as urgent as not in a long time, when we look at the world next to Germany.

Someone found that in Berlin and registered a demo as a Pride Parade. No advertising, no trucks, no alcohol. Politics instead of partying. Of course, much smaller than a typical CSD but all the more important – even here.

This “Gaypride” was a little bit like that Enough is Enough Demo years ago… And still important. The fact shows that, that there were obviously several situations during the parade, in which participants offended, were thrown and even assaulted….

I wrote before years ago, that the Berlin CSD is all the more important, since it's probably the eastern safe CSD. And even if this parade bore the world-famous name Gaypride, it stays that way. Even if there were the above situations, you are safe here and half the country is not like in Poland “LGBTIQ” Free zone….

By the way, most of the participants left space and wore masks….

And, ich war beim CSD Berlinauch in diesem Jahr.

Aber die Vorfreude auf den berliner CSD war in diesem Jahr gleich Null. Zu sehr genervt hat mich die ganze Szenerie und Diskussion rund um den CSD.

2014-06-23 12.43.36

Erst wurde der CSD in Stonewall umbenannt, große Diskussion darum, Markenrechtliche Alleingänge, keine Beteiligung der Community, seltsames Gebahren auf allen Kanälen und von allen Seiten. Am Ende solch ein Verwürfnis, dass dann sogar zwei CSDs durch Berlin liefenstopp sagte ich gerade zwei?

2014-06-23 13.43.48-1

Nein es liefen sogar drei CSDs durch Berlin. Da es dieses Jahr keinen TCSD gab, gab es eben einen Kreuzberger CSD über satte 550 Meter vom Oranienplatz zum Heinrichplatz, damage, dass ich dazu zu spät kamaber zurück zum CSD.

Wir schlossen uns dem klassischen CSD anob das nun die beste oder schlechteste Idee ist, darüber will ich keine abschliessende Meinung abgeben, eventuell würde ich in einem weiteren Fall den CSD des Aktionsbündnisses besuchen, der doch ein Zwischending des CSD und der großartigen Enough is Enough Demonstration des letzten Jahres gewesen scheint.

Da ich in diesem Jahr wie gesagt aus diesen Gründen so null Lust drauf hatte, habe ich mich auch nicht so recht um ein passendes Kostüm gekümmert, und so aus Gründen der WM und dem Ghana Spiel der deutschen Nationalmannschaft am Abend meinen Kunstrasen wieder ausgerollt. Ein wiederverwertetes Kostüm. welche Frevel, but whatever.

2014-06-23 14.30.11-2

Wir trafen uns wie fast in jedem Jahr bei Janka im Salon zum letzten fertigmachen und dann gemeinschaftlich mit Janka, Sheila und Diana weiterzuziehen. Aber irgendwie passte ich mit meinem Kunstrasen kaum zu den dreien, waren sie doch alle gehörnt als Huftiere unterwegs. Diana und Sheila als Sartyre (was auch immer das ist) und Janka alsaaaah Du bist ein Einhornich lieeeeebe EinhörnerSo zumindest hörte ich es zumeist aus allen Richtungen rufen, wenn ich in ihrer Nähe lief.

2014-06-23 11.58.12-1

Irgendwie gab es beim diesjährigen CSD aber technische Defekte, so kamen irgendwelche Trucks nicht durch irgendwelche Ecken und der ganze Zug hatte massenweise Verspätung. Zum Teil standen wir 20 Minuten rum und wartetenaber insgesamt ist das viel besser als von den Trucks von der Strasse geschoben zu werden.

2014-06-23 12.06.35-2

Es war so lange Zeit, dass wir sogar mit einem Kurzbesuch am M.A.C. Store im KDW, den Janka einer ihrer Kundinnen versprach, keine Zeit verloren und sogar noch Zeit für ein Foto vom Fotografen von Calvin Klein bliebzurück in den Zug.

2014-06-23 12.56.09-1

Kalt war es, windig war es und teilweise regnete, kein Wetterchen für ende Juni, But what can you do. Wir stellten uns wind und regengeschützt bei einer Bushaltestelle unter und warteten auf den Bus von Julian F.M. Stöckel, der uns Unterschlupf und unseren schmerzenden Füßen Erholung bot. Achja und Schinkenknacker und schmackhaftes Florida Eis.

Great, solch eine Basis, bei der man an den eher wenig besuchten Stellen mitfahren kann und an den besser besuchten Stellen der Strecke eben wieder herausspringt. Und nette Personen waren auch an Bord.

2014-06-23 14.03.00-1

So erreichten wir dann auch tatsächlich mal in Berlin das Ende der Strecke vor dem CDU Hauptquartier. Seltsames Ende der Strecke, aber so stießen wir zumindest dieses Jahr nicht auf die Fanmeile, die vor einigen Jahren doch ziemlich ekelig war, allerdings dieses Jahr extrem gut zu meinem Kostüm gepasst hätte :).

2014-06-23 14.05.47-2

Stattdessen setzten wir uns in die nächstbeste Hotellobby und bestellten uns ein Taxi zu den Autos und fuhren nach Hausewas mit drei CSDs, einer Fanmeile und unzähligen Fête de la Musique Bühnen extrem zeitaufwendig und schwierig war. Ein unglaublicher Umweg um zu Janka zu kommen.

2014-06-23 15.20.02

Daher verpasste ich leider auch den kreuzberger CSD, den ich gerne die 550 Meter direkt vor meiner Haustür am Oranienplatz gerne noch besucht hätte, stattdessen besuchte ich eben die Fête de la musique Bühne ebenfalls am Oranienplatz… I mentioned, dass ich meinen Kiez liebe 😉

2014-06-23 22.07.49

Oh, positiv aufgefallen war mir der große schwarze Block auf dem CSDviele Polizisten aus allen teilen Europas, die in ihren Uniformen mitliefen. Finde ich klasse, das zeigt, dass sich Zeiten ändern. Und lieber MIT ihnen zu laufen, als von ihnen geschützt werden zu müssen odernoch schlimmer von ihnen verprügelt zu werden was ja in vielen Teilen der Welt noch immer so istund wieder immer schlimmer wirdUnd bei allem Streit, das ist ja noch immer Grund und Hintergrund der CSD

The eastern europe is really safe CSD Berlin

The last few years have opened up a large pair of scissors, what the rights of the entire queer community – probably the better communities – As for. While some countries have made great progress, other countries have turned back the wheel in the direction of Stone Age. In Europe, Russia hovered just as extreme in the wrong direction – which it is believed to overcome long. Time for a political Gaypride.

The Berlin CSD was therefore also a political slogan, the officially “No more speeches” was called. Unofficially the motto was rather “With all due respect Mr Putin, they are an asshole” and Berlin CSD was a big statement on the situation in Russia. As the first truck led a Russian truck, the GMF Cart devoted himself entirely Ivan the Terrible Herrn Putin, Whether sah massig Plakate, Slogans and banners against the situation in the Russian Federation and heard everywhere languages, were more likely attributable to the Eastern Bloc.

Berlin is probably the easternmost CSD probably now, which provides a certain size AND safety. And he certainly echoes the east as before Rias. Will it interest Putin, no of course not. It is interested in Eastern visitors, And, of course, queer people will be interested in the countries, I think so. The Berlin CSD shows, that the wheel-turning-back promotions are not God-given, but, that there is another way. Here you can be open to a move CSD – and you can even celebrate, and celebrate with the people around them. The CSD celebrates 44 Stonewall years, much attained and demonstrated against all the negative tendencies.

And, I admit, I had not really affected as not on the screen, that even in Germany itself Berlin in terms of acceptance is not gold, that shines on the CSD. That means everything together and makes affected only: the CSD is as important as ever, probably even more important than in the past 5-10 Years. So let us demonstrate and celebrate… and in both I'm here with a full heart.

DSC04784

So we come to Feierei… But I'm so glued weeks, take me to tinker on one day a banner saying. If you want to celebrate, then I will also shine. I could say pompously, “with my costume I wanted to hold a mirror up to the motto of the policy” but far, I just wanted to look dazzling and it worked, it was a sunny day and I reflected perfectly the sun's rays and saw my reflected solar radiation to passersby and houses along the route.

Hamburg ist in the House

Not really on the screen I had the weight of the dress. It went so far, I had to ask my neighbor to help getting dressed neighborhood. Holding up and close at the same time… almost impossible. No matter, they helped me and I could heave gently in the car… but realized it already, that is a difficult box. For safety reasons, therefore, I parked my car about halfway and went by taxi to the starting point.

DSC04697

As might be expected, was there at the time already Tatjana Taft Medusa in her outfit…. Hmmmm the attentive CSD visitors like me, is the best known being evil… Okay, they explained to me. The actual costume was not ready and this would have never been born in berlin. Oh, the actual costume is not done yet? Something happened that even professionals like Tatjana. Is there a something almost happy.

Meanwhile, I also know, mirror that she had also been in a costume idea, but because it has the weight of discarded… So she was smarter than me … and I had to live with it. Until everything went quite well, I was well, playing with my disco ball and interested enough photographer. Kostüm kommt an. Tick ​​it.

With further distance themselves but showed the costume + Peep-toes was not a good idea. When pressing the first two toes in the Peeptoeschlitz once, can it actually amputating only, it hurts… When you go it's just, but the train stopped often and are looong and then goes not… Sit down? With the dress not a good idea, So endure pain and hope, that the next train leaves soon.

Always amazing again, how can an irritated and subscribed to the grin of pain bring short term, when a camera creates the. Practiced just. I still managed to always magnificent area around the village square and the Noll Goya, know with the fixed, soon as is my car and I can change.

When I had almost reached my car, Daphne Daphne asked me AKA Maria Mater d'Or still an obligatory photo, I could, however, bring only very tormented behind me, a genuine smile was not possible until, I had rid myself of shoes – and my dress…. Somewhat sobering, if a dress with the second, that you have just bought the same number of times people say, how great is the, as for other Dress, The man dem Monatelang (well at least for weeks) has tinkered.

Kein Lächeln mehr möglich 🙁

But no matter, From now on, I was in private and in civil here. I was talking with a photographer over the Drags, I looked closer to the green jellyfish on the horizon… and I still say “I get the same trouble, because I have put off the shoes” … Tatiana came closer and it was so. I should kindly write in the blog also, I have changed the shoes and not only, that she has a costume recycled… …After many years CSDs we both know apparently, was jeweils von der anderen Person zu erwarten ist 🙂 Okay, I wrote both… And, I have canceled a CSD for the first time and I will not wear again peeptoes.

DSC04797

When I was there so standing around and photographed, Diana came, Sheila and Janka past, Unfortunately, the need for much longer, than planned and so very late went into the train. I really wanted to get there again, but an attempt with my shoes showed me, I can abschminken me completely, So I stopped and photographed more.

DSC04773

Among other things occurred to me while Jessica Spirit before the lens – and I did not recognize. She was in my early days of my absolute idols, like a blog post from 2006 !!! proves, I wrote, after I actually by Sheila ( yes exactly THE Sheila ) was designated as idols… This is 7 Years ago. Surprisingly, sooner Idol, This year I have not even recognize Jessica. So kann es kommen. A few words I would have been happy to change. Well, comes time, wheel comes.

I definitely went home and welcomed the passing of my house TCSD with hard flagging. And since I just had no rainbow flag at hand, I also just recycled an old outfit CSD short and hung my Rainbow Zönix of the window, to leave before I went to Sheila for grilling at the CSD wonderful day end.
