The very first Munich Pride (CSD) took place at June 28, in 1980 and we are celebrating the CSD this year for the 36th time - in the meantime with over 200,000 people taking part!
Since the year 2000, this huge event is organized by the four major social and political associations Rosa Liste, Sub, LeTra and Münchner Aids-Hilfe.
Besides fun and festivities, the focus is also very much on the political roots of the CSD. Thus the CSD traditionally begins with the demonstration, which is led by the Mayor, Dieter Reiter, and the Rosa Liste city councillor, Thomas Niederbühl since the year 2000.
Afterwards, the street festival takes place at the Marienplatz, Munich's historic central square. And in the evening, the honorable neo-gothic Munich City Hall opens it's doors and is transformed into an enormous party location for the gay and lesbian community. This is truly unique
