Come to Berlin for this amazing event and stay at our cosy hostel

The Berliner CSD will be 31 on 27th June 2009. Thirty-one years in which the Community has been developing its diversity and its political aims. But discrimination towards gays, lesbians, transgenders and bisexuals still exists. A proud number of 500,000 people went onto the streets last year. The event as the biggest gay-lesbian “holiday” will this year once again be an appropriate platform to add the right weight to long overdue demands.

The CSD is held in memory of the first big uprising of homosexuals against police assaults in Greenwich Village (New York, USA) on June 27, 1969. The so-called Stonewall Riots took place in the bar Stonewall Inn. The first German CSDs took place in Bremen and Berlin in 1979.
