Celebrating 50 Years of Pride

Every June, Pride parades are celebrated all over the world. These parades are known in Germany as "Christopher Street Day" or CSD. The name refers to Christopher Street in New York's Greenwich Village, where the Stonewall Inn is still located today. On June 28, 1969, violent riots between the police and activists of the gay and lesbian movement took place in front of this bar. The Stonewall Inn was considered a refuge for members of the LGBTQI+ scene, where they could meet and chat with people of similar interests without being harassed. At the same time, such bars were often a target for police raids. According to the law at the time, the police had the right to detain anyone who did not wear at least three garments identified with their gender. That June evening, visitors of the Stonewall Inn began to defend themselves against such a raid and the arrests associated with it. In memory of these events, members of the LGBTQI+ scene continue to take to the streets to fight for their rights and make their voices heard.
