Information on the coronavirus crisis


Munich, March 19, 2020

At present and in the foreseeable future, events of all kinds are prohibited in order to stem the spread of the coronavirus, and public life has largely come to a standstill. Whether and to what extent Munich Pride on July 11th/12th will be affected by this, we cannot estimate at the moment. Therefore, our preparations are currently continuing, albeit slowed down by the circumstances.

We are in close contact with the authorities, also with other organizers, especially the CSDs, and are monitoring the situation very closely. Should new findings and resulting decisions for a postponement or cancellation arise, we will inform you immediately.

Keep well!
Your Munich Pride Team

Munich Pride: July 4 - 12, 2020

Welcome to Munich!

Munich is the city of Oktoberfest, the home of the football club FC Bayern Munich, and of the automobile company BMW as well. But Munich has much more to offer - particularly for gays and lesbians.

The state capital of Bavaria is a liberal metropolis, in which lesbians and gays are a natural part of the society. There are numerous bars, restaurants and shops, but also a wide range of non-commercial groups and associations - there is something for every taste.

In 1997 and 2018 the international gay and lesbian choir festival was celebrated in Munich, and in 2004 the EuroGames took place here for the first time.

Truly unique was Munich's city council from May 1996 till April 2014: The Social Democrats, the Green Party and the gay & lesbian party "Rosa Liste" formed a coalition together. The city council changed in May 2014, but "Rosa Liste" is still a part of the city council.

Munich Pride =
Christopher Street Day (CSD) München

The very first Munich Pride (CSD) took place on June 28, in 1980 and this year we are celebrating the 40th CSD in Munich and expect over 200.000 people to take part!

Since 2000, this huge event has been organized by the four major social and political associations Rosa Liste, Sub, LeTra and Münchner Aids-Hilfe.

Besides fun and festivities, the focus is also very much on the political roots of the CSD. Thus the CSD traditionally begins with the pride parade, which is led by the Mayor, Dieter Reiter, and the Rosa Liste city councillor, Thomas Niederbühl.

Afterwards, the street festival takes place at the Marienplatz, Munich's historic central square. In the evening, the magnificent neo-gothic Munich City Hall opens it's doors and is transformed into an enormous party location for the gay and lesbian community. This is a truly unique experience - worldwide!
