"Christopher Street Day" is how the gay pride parades are called in Germany. They take place in many German cities in the months between June and September. Gay Pride Week in Berlin is usually in the middle weeks of June, this year the grand gay pride took place yesterday and it was again crowded with people of every race, gender or sexual orientation. A good time was had by all who attended.

This time the parade was very political with many manifestations against the homophobic actions in Russia, and also against the German conservative party who continues to work against the fully acceptance and equality of gay marriage.

A walk on Unter den Linden

Today US President Obama speaks to the German people in front of the Brandenburg Gate. Unter den Linden is the promenade that leads to the Gate. Of course today the whole area is off limits for security reasons.

I use to take a walk on Unter den Linden, especially in this period when the trees are green and the weather is fine. Here are some pictures that I took on June 12 while I was waiting for a job interview. The weather was lovely so before the interview I relaxed a bit enjoying the nice weather and the fresh air.

Last weekend the Gay-Lesbian Street Fair took place in Schöneberg, Berlin's inoffcial gay village. It was packed again, rivers of beer and tons of fast food from all over the world was consumed.

It was quite fun although the bears were scattered all around the street fair, as the Spreebären had no booth this year.
