Hundreds of thousands of people marched through the streets of the German capital Berlin on Saturday in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) rights. The 45th Berlin Pride parade, known in Germany as the Christopher Street Day or CSD featured around 75 trucks that led the huge crowd through the city’s downtown on a 7.4-kilometer (4.6-mile) route. House and electro beats could be heard playing as participants partied in colorful, neon outfits under the motto “Be their voice — and ours! For more empathy and solidarity!” The celebration was linked to political demands to work for an open society and against hate and exclusion. There were also many expressions of solidarity for Ukraine over Russia’s invasion and Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany Oleksii Makeiev addressed participants from a blue and yellow themed float.
