Hundreds of pro-LGBTQ activists gathered in Weimar on Saturday for a pride march on Christopher Street Day (CSD) in Thuringia, months after the planned celebration had been postponed due to the coronavirus spread.

“We’re fighting once again for our right and once again we are making it clear why we still need CSD today. For acceptance, respect, diversity – for our colorful Thuringia,” said Theresa Ertel, CSD spokesperson.

The Saturday parade united four Thuringian CSD groups, from Erfurt, Weimar, Jena, and Gera for the first time, since separate parades scheduled for spring had to be cancelled following the anti-coronavirus measures.
