Despite the pandemic, over 3,500 protesters took to the streets of the German capital to support freedom for LGBT+ people. Activists said they wanted to bring attention to serious human rights threats in many countries. Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) rights activists marched through Berlin in a smaller version of one of the largest pride festivals in the world on Saturday. The German capital’s annual pride parade and festival, known as Christopher Street Day (CSD Berlin), routinely draws more than a million people but was canceled this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. It was due to take place on July 25. Berlin police expected more than 1,000 people to attend the demonstration but later estimated that about 3,500 people took part.
