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….

CSD Hamburg and Advertising

It is known that each CSD has, Gay Pride Parade every fight in Germany again and again against, that accused her, only one party- to be commercial and event.

With this knowledge it should be of course, that repeatedly reminded, that this is a demonstration of – and just as naturally it should also be, that one rejects too clumsy monopolization. Just as this year's parades contribution of Citeecar.


Has made me really angry – I really have not seen such a blatant advertising on one of the CSDs and I once witnessed three to four parades for many years now.

What the hell was that?
Five in a row moving cars' a maybe 4,50 Meters + 4 *3 Meters distance without any immediate sense – excluding advertising. Everyone was on the equivalent of about 35 Not much more experienced meters Parade, except that one off at Citee cars 1 Could rent €…

It will not work.


Okay, I have seen other advertising on the CSDs, but most of the companies is trying somehow to “cover up” Myth Slogans, mit Regenbogen Fahnen oder etwas mit Musik. Einfach nur Plump, unverschleierte Werbung allerdings, das ist neu. Ehrlich gesagt hat mich das wirklich geärgert.

Auf die Frage an einen der Fahrer, Welch andere Message transportieren sie wurde er ausser Werbung antwortete peace Ehrlich:
“Keine andere Message”;
“Das ist doch ganz schön FRECH, or?”
“Sorry, ich habe das nicht peace ausgedacht”

Also Citeecar, wer von euch hat sich das ausgedacht, schämt und ihr euch ein Kleines wenigstens bisschen?

Achja und Hamburg Pride, I wish you a little more self-esteem, at times like even “No” say. Check it please in the future a little on the car, that at least a minimum is included in message… Such participants should urgently cancel your. Rather an entry fee less. At least I saw the so-, and those, with whom I talked about it, also…


You have the massive doubters not so willfully offer explosive!

And no, only because the slogan of the CSD on the roof is (where can read it just a helicopter) or on the door of a Hinnerk logo is emblazoned in a promotion not a CSD Post!

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.


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.


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.


Mr. Cool

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.


No more smiling possible 🙁

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, what to expect from the other person 🙂 Okay, I wrote both… And, I have canceled a CSD for the first time and I will not wear again peeptoes.


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.


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.

Flagging hard to TCSD

Rio Gay Pride

It's for milking mice. Since I do have with my Regenbogenzönix tried everything imaginable last year, so me the inclined photo agencies AP, AFP, Reuters, etc record times in their fundus images of the three CSDs in Germany.


Because as we all know, this is the only chance, that a record once the major journals in the reporting… The time had somehow not quite worked out as expected. Although I came with a year tide in evening paper under the notice of the new parade, but otherwise… None usually at least.

Surprisingly, but that, once you jetting times around the earth and in the Rio Gay Pride in the Jehresurlaubes at once for German music of the world, Reflector, Focus, Star is interesting.


I am inclined, say, that the prophet has no honor in his own country. At least, as long as it is in this very.

Honestly I know but, that this prophet has no honor in simply Tatjana Taft Country.

Because honestly, It is hardly a coincidence, that I appear, and this for the same reason, Tatjana know nach jedem CSD… Es war einfach wenig besseres da 😉
