Magdeburg CSD, or Christopher Street Day Magdeburg, is an annual LGBTQ+ pride event held in Magdeburg, the capital city of Saxony-Anhalt in Germany. It is named after the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street in New York City, where the historic Stonewall riots took place in 1969. These riots are considered the catalyst for the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement.

The Magdeburg CSD usually takes place during the summer months, often in June or July, and serves as a celebration of diversity, acceptance, and the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. The event is marked by a colorful parade, live music, informational booths, and various parties and events held throughout the city. People from all walks of life come together to express their support for LGBTQ+  rights, to stand up against discrimination, and to promote equal rights for all.

Magdeburg CSD is organized by a local non-profit organization, CSD Magdeburg e.V., which works tirelessly to ensure the event's success. The organization collaborates with numerous partners, sponsors, and supporters from the local community, including businesses, institutions, and political parties.

One of the main goals of Magdeburg CSD is to raise awareness of the issues facing the LGBTQ+ community, such as discrimination, prejudice, and hate crimes. The event also aims to create a safe and welcoming space for LGBTQ+ individuals to come together and celebrate their identities. Through a variety of activities and events, Magdeburg CSD encourages dialogue and fosters a sense of unity among its participants.
