CSD 2017 – Before the Rain

Rainbows abound at CSD

Saturday was CSD / Gay Pride / in Berlin. One of my work colleagues joined me for the parade; we got there maybe 15-20 minutes too late to get the perfect seats, but it was good enough and as the parade went by, I got claim the spot I actually […]

Yesterday was Christopher Street Day! Happy Gay Pride Berlin!

The start of the CSD Parade feautred flags from around the world, with rainbow flags added.

a boy — he’s got a metal chain attached and his owner is behind him. Both were having a great time.

Shoe switch — She couldn’t take the heels any longer, so she switch with a […]

Berlin’s Hot! 97°F Hot!

…and with no air conditioning, per usual.

June has, to be blunt, hotted up nicely. With temperatures soaring above 30°C daily since Saturday, my ice cream sorbet consumption has soared.

This past weekend was a three-day weekend in Berlin (and, I suspect, most of Germany). Celebrating Whit Monday, this was the last legal holiday for […]

CSD Berlin, 2013: In photographs

Yesterday was a fine day for a parade and a fine day for allergies. This does not make for a great combination, at least as far as I am concerned.

That said, did go to the Christopher Street Day Parade here in Berlin, lasted for about two hours (of the parade) before my capacity to […]

CSD and tCSD Berlin, 2012

Plug Yourself In.

Saturday I headed out to watch the two Christopher Street Day parades that happen in Berlin every year – the “normal” one and the “alternative” one.

Wanting to hit up both parades meant that I had to choose strategically and that I never made it to the end party for the […]

Wissen schafft Akzeptanz / Knowledge brings acceptance: Happy Birthday to Alan Turing.

Today, June 23, 2012, marks the 100th birthday of Alan Turing, a man whose efforts helped break Nazi encryptions, and, consequently, end the war. He was even awarded an OBE for this.

There’s no way I could do justice to him in this space.

But I do want to focus on the fact that he […]

Getting Ready for the Weeks Ahead

Looking at my calendar, I can only say that the rest of this month is going to be exhausting and that maybe I should start taking naps now, in preparation for the rest of the month.

For example, this Saturday I am going to be participating in the Berlin Fotomarathon, and while Snooker in Berlin […]

CSD 2011, Berlin, as seen from the Official Lady Gaga Truck

I won’t try to justify it – but instead of watching this year’s Christopher Street Days Parade (the mainstream one) go through Berlin, I bought a ticket and jumped onboard the Official Lady Gaga Truck.

The weather was optimal – it never rained, but it never got excessively hot, so there wasn’t a problem with […]

CSD Clean Up Time

Normal ist anders: CSD Berlin 2010

I need to be in Berlin Monday in order to visit the place that I hope to be living in while I work and search for an apartment. I decided to head up here a couple days early just to party for this weekend is, as Snooker reminded me, Christopher Street Days in Berlin!

For […]
