Christopher Street Day

Christopher Street Day in Hamburg annually attracts around 100,000 visitors from all over Europe, who join to set a clear signal for acceptance, diversity and love of life.

The history of the CSD in Hamburg now goes back more than 40 years. Back then, in the summer of 1980, homo-, bi- and transsexuals took to the streets in the Hanseatic city for the first time on a large scale for their rights. Their demand, which was both simple and courageous: equal rights and tolerance for all, whether lesbian, gay or heterosexual. To this day, the CSD makes clear demands on politicians year after year. These include full legal equality for same-sex partnerships and a reform of the existing law on transsexuals.
Popular public festival with imaginative costumes and lots of show

In Hamburg, CSD has long since developed into a popular folk festival that attracts more visitors to the Elbe every year - including heterosexuals. In the meantime, around 100,000 visitors from all over Europe come to the CSD parade every year, setting an example of acceptance, diversity and zest for life. For three hours almost 40 groups, cars and trucks parade from the Lange Reihe (St. Georg) to the Jungfernstieg (old town). Different politicians lead the parade every year. Also part of the parade: imaginative costumes, hot beats and lots of show. The spectrum of the festival ranges from pop, electro, hits and rock to indie. A central part of the parade is also an approximately half-hour rally in the city, where the demands of the participants are read out clearly audible. For some years now, the Jungfernstieg and Ballindamm have also been firmly in the hands of homosexuals, bisexuals and transsexuals during the CSD weekend.

The motto for 2020 is "Keep on fighting. Together. - 40 years of CSD Hamburg".

+++ Due to the corona pandemic CSD 2020 will not take place for the time being. The organisers are discussing a possible alternative date. +++

Review Hamburg Pride 2019

Last year the CSD stood under the motto "Basically the same - for a better constitution". There were calls for Article 3 of the Basic Law (principle of equality) to be amended to include sexual orientation and gender identity.
