All the Dates and Events for Berlin CSD and Prides in 2022

Other cities usually stage one main Pride parade (CSD), but Berlin has several! In addition to the 'main' CSD organised by the CSD e.V. organisation, there are other Pride events, each with its own unique focus. It is not surprising that the diversity of Berlin is also reflected in the Berlin CSDs. The question is: which Pride event suits you best?

CSD Berlin is coming back in a big way: Before the demo on 23 July 2022, there will be a "Pride Month" with numerous events.

CSD Berlin

During the last two years, the main Berlin CSD Pride was only able to take place under strict Corona restrictions, but this year it will return for an entire month. Its climax and closing event will be the CSD demonstration and street parade. This year the motto is 'United in Love: Resistance against Hatred, War and Discrimination’. Pride Month itself kicks off on 28 June 2022, with this being the date of the commemoration of the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York. The programme for the opening ceremony includes a performance party where transsexual and queer refugees will showcase their talents. In the intervening weeks, the queer community will be staging a diverse programme of films, parties, sports and much more. Detailed information can be found on the CSD website. (red)

Sets a sign for lesbian visibility: The "Dyke* March Berlin", this year on 22 July 2022.

Dyke* March Berlin

The day before CSD, the Dyke* March Berlin will take place. It has one main goal, namely, to increase lesbian visibility in the community and in the general public at large. In addition to lesbians, everyone who is an ally and part of the supportive community that stands up for human rights is invited to take part in the demonstration. This year, the demo will start on Friday 22 July 2022 at 6 pm. Meeting point is the Platz der Luftbrücke in front of the (former) Tempelhof Airport. The march then winds its way through the streets of the city and ends at the Elsenbrücke in the district of Treptow. Convenient: DJ and organiser Sara Moshiri is hosting the official Dyke* March Berlin closing party at the "Else" club there. Want to join the party? Then save a few euros by getting your tickets in advance! You can find the tickets online here! (mm)

The rainbow flag is hoisted in front of the Lichtenberg town hall. The district also celebrates "Pride Weeks".

Queer life in Berlin also flourishes in the districts outside the S-Bahn ring around the city centre. Lichtenberg, for example, is organising Pride Weeks again this year, which begin in mid-June with a film screening of 'Bohemian Rhapsody', a lecture on the realities of trans* women's lives, and a party. Around the time of the CSD on 23 July, street parties and demonstrations will also form part of the programme. (red)

At the "Marzahn Pride" on 18 June 2022, queer refugees from Ukraine will have their say.

Marzahn Pride

This year, for the third time running, the queer community in the eastern district of Marzahn will be demonstrating for equal rights and against discrimination with the ‘Marzahn Pride’. Because Marzahn is home to a large Russian- and Ukrainian-speaking community, the Marzahn Pride is also sattended by these groups. The association 'Quarteera' is the driving force behind the event. This organisation supports queer people from the post-Soviet region and Eastern Europe. This year, the Marzahn Pride will focus on the war in the Ukraine and will give queer refugees from the war zone an opportunity to be heard. The demonstration will take place on 18 June 2022 at 12 noon at the intersection of Märkische Allee and Raoul-Wallenberg-Strasse and will end at Victor-Klemperer-Platz. (red)

Central theme of the "East Pride Berlin" on 25 June 2022: The situation of queer people in Eastern Europe.

East Pride Berlin

Even in the days of the GDR and the division of Berlin, the Prenzlauer Berg district was a rallying point for the lesbian and gay scene. The 'East Pride Berlin’, which will begin on 25 June 2022 at 2 p.m. with an opening service at the Gethsemanekirche, builds on this tradition. From there, the demonstration route leads across Alexanderplatz to the Russian and Ukrainian embassies. The central theme is the status of queer people in these and other Eastern European countries. Fittingly, the Ukrainian trans woman and singer Zi Faámelu will perform during the opening ceremony. (red)

For pride and self-esteem, trans* and allies take to the streets at "Trans Pride Berlin" on 30 July 2022.

Trans Pride Berlin

One week after CSD, Berlin's trans community will be raising awareness of their concerns with the 'Trans Pride Berlin' on 30 July 2022. The organising team will publish the exact programme on their Facebook page in the weeks prior to the event. However, the route of the demonstration has already been decided. It will start at 2 pm at Kottbusser Tor, in the middle of Berlin's alternative district Kreuzberg. The demonstration route ends at Mariannenplatz, about one kilometre away. More demonstrations and other events are planned there throughout the day. (red)
