Rudolf turns 70 today. 70! He was a mere 67 years old when I took this photo at 2016 Copenhell.

CSD (Christopher Street Day)

2017 Berlin Gay Pride Parade

One year ago today I found myself in the thick of Berlin’s gay pride parade on Christopher Street Day. I didn’t intend to go to Berlin for a gay pride festival; nor did I intend my AirBNB to be in the center of the gay quarter of Berlin. However, it ended up being a fun neighborhood and memorable experience.

This year’s CSD falls on July 28. I suppose it’s always on a Saturday near the end of July.

Earlier this month we finally passed the point in history in which the Berlin Wall has been down for more time than it was up. A few small parts are still up though. Today’s photo comes from last summer.

The Lebensalterbrunnen is on the south side of the Wittenbergplatz Station in Berlin. Waldemar Grzimek created this fountain in the early 1980s.

I thought the number of gay people on the plane from Copenhagen to Berlin this past July was far more than typical. I didn’t realize until I’d been in Berlin for a couple days that it was Gay Pride weekend. In Berlin they call it Christopher Street Day (CSD). About a half million people turned out for the parade. This guy was an hour or so early.
