 Matt Shoots : Matt Balara’s autodidactic course in photojournalism.
Christopher Street Day (CSD) is an annual parade and political demonstration that takes its name from the street where the Stonewall riots took place.
The political aspect is no longer as obvious as it once was—CSD today is more of a street party than anything else—but it is the one day of the year where the whole homosexual community can let their freak flag fly out in the open, which was certainly unimaginable thirty years ago.
Christopher Street Day is know for over-the-top costumes, and CSD Hamburg 2006 was no exception.

 Capitalizing on Christopher Street Day in Cologne | Business | Deutsche Welle | 06.07.2003
Culminating in a colorful parade on July 6, the CSD celebration is the mid-summer highlight for the city on the Rhine.
Cologne’s Christopher Street Day parade is Europe’s biggest gay and lesbian festival, and according to the event’s organizers one of the world’s largest.
CSD may attract thousands to its glitzy celebrations this year, but homosexual reality is far from colourful.

 Christopher Street Day (CSD)
Christopher Street Day (CSD) has its origins in New York City, where on June 27, 1969, gays and lesbians resisted a brutal police raid at a club on Christopher St. The protest eventually led to further demonstrations calling for the rights of homosexuals and transsexuals.
The first CSD in Germany took place in 1979 in Berlin, and since then celebrations have been held every year.
The next Christopher Street Day in Berlin will take place on June 26, 2004, when even more CSD enthusiasts will take part in the fabulous procession through the Tiergarten.

With an expected turnout of 400,000, Berlin's Christopher Street Day rates as highly as the Prides in New York, London, Amsterdam and San Francisco.
The CSD celebrations are seen as a sign of greater acceptance and tolerance among the wider general public.
The fact that many of the country's gay pride celebrations are still called Christopher Street Days (after the New York Stonewall riots in 1969) is evidence that the Germans like politics with their parties rather than party politics.

 Ford of Europe Sponsors the Christopher Street Day Parade   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
COLOGNE, Germany, July 11, 2001 -- Members of the gay and lesbian community took to the streets of Cologne at the weekend to celebrate the annual Christopher Street Day Parade.
"Christopher Street Day is the expression of gay, lesbian, bisexual people in Germany to be visible and show pride," said Tobias Nowak, member of Ford GLOBE, Germany.
The company's sponsorship of events like the Christopher Street Day Parade and London's Mardi Gras Gay Pride celebration are further proof that Ford values the diversity of its employees and that it believes the makeup of its work force should reflect the makeup of society.

 lastminute.com - Munich - Munich Christopher Street Day
The city's CSD Pride celebrations are some of the most spirited in Germany.
Bavaria and Munich are not exactly known for being progressive and liberal, but that does not stop more than 70,000 excited spectators from taking to the streets in lederhosen, feather boas and high heels to watch the 30,000-strong parade.
Mirroring the general attitude amongst CSD organisers around the country, the organisers also emphasise the roots of the event: the New York Stonewall riots in 1969, in which gays took to the streets in order to fight for civil rights, pride and equality.

 Queer History
While the riots at the Stonewall Inn on Greenwich Village's Christopher Street seem carved in stone as the birth of the gay liberation movement, the event might not be remembered in quite the same way had it not been for the commemorative march and rally organized a year later.
But without the Christopher Street Liberation Day Committee, "Stonewall" probably wouldn't be any better known than the "Annual Reminder" demonstrations held yearly on the Fourth of July outside Independence Hall.
For five years, between 1965 and 1969, activists from throughout the country gathered outside Independence Hall, where the U.S. Constitution was drafted and signed, to remind the nation that not all of its citizens had equal rights under the law.

Never ever have i heard more Madonna songs than today at the Berlin Christopher Street Day parade - besides of a Madonnamania party i once attended last winter.
Madonna does some “confessions on the dance floor” and Klaus did confess his state of being gay some years ago with his well known sentence “ich bin schwul und das ist gut so” (i am gay and this is good like it is).
Last year we had shitty weather but this year - in the perfect berlin summer we are encountering since the 8th of june - the day before worldcup2006 - everything was quite different.
