Every year Munich celebrates Christopher Street Day, an event dedicated to the LGBT community in our city. It culminates with the Munich Pride march, which this year was particularly interesting.
As usual, the parade was colorful, loud and filled up with hundreds of smiles. The music was boosting from the vehicles and the rainbow flags were waved high and proud. But what made it particularly interesting, was the fact that there were more people attending and watching than any other Munich Pride we have attended.
It was not only the participants but also all the folks that decided to spare some time to support diversity or simply enjoy the party. On both sides of the streets of the march route, people were lining up to cheer the procession, take photos and hug the marchers. There were whole families with kids, homosexual and heterosexual couples, young and old, bold and long-haired… A true diversity.
