Nuremberg and the gay scene

Christopher Street Day in Nuremberg

The Stonewall Riot of 1969 made waves internationally over the last 50 years and also inspired the whole queer scene in German cities. Here in Germany, three years after the Stonewall Riot, women and men of same-sex orientation dared to demonstrate in the streets. Over the years, Christopher Street Day has developed from a political demonstration into a recognised event that, in addition to spreading political messages, also provides fun and unforgettable experiences.

Colourful, shrill, dressed up and cheerful - this is how Christopher Street Day is celebrated in Nuremberg. This year, the well-known event is taking place in Nuremberg for the 23rd time in a row. It involves a demonstration, a corn market and a closing party. Every year, the CSD is accompanied by a varied and colourful supporting programme. The large CSD demonstration starts at Berliner Platz and follows a route to Jakobsplatz. Once there, the party starts outside with a colourful supporting programme, a number of information stands and familiar faces from the gay scene. The programme ends at 10 p.m. and for all night owls there is the official, big CSD closing party from 11 p.m. onwards.

Mister Gay Germany 2020: Is it someone from Nuremberg?

Every year, the next representative of the gay community is elected in Germany. This year, Pascal Oswald from Nuremberg came in a proud fourth. However, anyone who thinks that the title is just about the classic awarding of prizes to the hottest contestant is mistaken. The title "Mister Gay Germany" stands for the "hero of the scene". It takes into account how the contestant stands up for the gay community and whether he or she is able to give courage to insecure gay boys by setting an example.

With Pascal Oswald's voluntary commitment to Aids-The chances for him were therefore very good in Nuremberg. Pascal's aim in taking part in the competition was to increase acceptance of him and the gay scene in general through his growing popularity. He himself reports little experience with homophobia in his neighbourhood, but he is aware of how tolerance towards gays is not as advanced in other cities as it is in Nuremberg. In his opinion, Nuremberg also offers a wide range of activities for homosexuals, from bars to sports clubs. 

The 4th placed Mister Gay Germany 2020 has big plans for 2020. Because, that the big city Erlangen does not offer any events and activities for gays, Pascal would like to change this as soon as possible. The plans for a future Christopher Street Day next year are in place and the gay community of the city of Erlangen is also behind him and supports his project and his goals.
