About this work
Text gives details of an open-air Christopher Street Day Gala on 7 July 1995 at the Rheinpark in Cologne organised by Friends of the AIDS-Hilfe Köln e.V. "Christopher Street Day (CSD) is an annual European LGBT celebration held in various cities across Europe. Only Germany and Switzerland use the term CSD, in other countries; the same kind of event is called Gay Pride or Pride Parade ... [CSD events are held in] memory of the first big uprising of homosexuals against police assaults that took place in New York's Christopher Street in Greenwich Village on June 27, 1969. The so-called Stonewall Riots took place in the bar Stonewall Inn ... The first German CSDs took place in Bremen and Berlin in 1979" [extract from en.wikipedia.org]
