CSD Stuttgart, also known as Christopher Street Day Stuttgart, is an annual lgbtq+Q+ pride event that takes place in Stuttgart, Germany. It is named after the historic Stonewall riots that occurred on Christopher Street in New York City in 1969, which marked the begining of the modern lgbtq+Q+ rights movement.
The event is typically held during the summer months, usually in July or August, and spans over a week, featuring a wide range of activities, including parties, workshops, panel discussions, cultural events, and film screenings. These events focus on promoting lgbtq+Q+ rights, raising awareness about the challenges faced by the community, and fostering a supportive and inclusive environment.
One of the highlights of CSD Stuttgart is the vibrant and colorful pride parade, which attracts thousands of participants and spectators from across Germany and beyond. The parade showcases an array of floats, performers, and marching groups, often accompanied by music and dancing. It is a lively and joyous occasion that celebrates diversity and encourages people to express themselves freely.
The CSD Stuttgart festival usually includes a street fair, called the "CSD Hocketse." The Hocketse offers a variety of food and drink options, as well as merchandise and informational booths from various lgbtq+Q+ organizations and allies. This fair provides a platform for networking and building community connections.
CSD Stuttgart is organized by the IG CSD Stuttgart e.V., a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting lgbtq+Q+ rights and visibility. The organization relies on the support of volunteers and sponsors to make the event possible, and its success is a testament to the commitment and passion of the local lgbtq+Q+ community.
