Happy Pride! CSD in Lübeck on August 17

Together with more than 2000 people, Democrats Abroad danced and celebrated love and tolerance through the streets of Lübeck. For the first time, the Lübeck precinct participated in the 2-hour Christopher Street Day parade proudly holding up our Happy Pride banner and Make America Gay Again signs. Our group was small but our message was loud and clear: our American values differ greatly from those of the current administration.

Following the parade we positioned ourselves at the market place handing out information and the ever-so-popular Trump in Drag postcards, answering GOTV questions, receiving ubiquitous free hugs and generally just having a good time.

Many thanks to our volunteers, especially to those from Hamburg, who traveled hours to help make our event a success.

We are looking forward to participating again next year with our own pavilion. Contact me if you have any suggestions and/or would like to volunteer.

Happy Pride!
