Cologne PRIDE

Christopher Street Day (CSD) commemorates the first known uprising by homosexuals and other sexual minorities against police brutality in New York's Christopher Street in the Greenwich Village district. This has grown into one of the largest international human rights movements, which organizes a demonstration for the rights of gays, lesbians and all sexual minorities in many countries in the summer. Nowadays, one of the largest CSD demonstrations in Europe takes place in Cologne every year on the first weekend in July.
