CSD Leipzig registered association
On Januar 6th 2023 the CSD Leipzig registered association (CSD Leipzig e.V.) of 23 establishment members – among them co-organizers of the first Christopher Street Day in Leipzig over 30 years ago – was brought into being.
In memory of the 1969 Stonewall riots on Christopher Street in New York, the first Christopher Street Day (CSD) in Leipzig took place on June 28, 1992: organized by a broad action alliance of queer volunteers, associations and employees of the city of Leipzig. In the following years, this action alliance continued to grow and established itself as a regular series of events with the goal of equal rights and acceptance of ways of life and love beyond the heterosexual or binary norm. The Action Alliance was and is always anchored in the queer association structure and was logistically supported in particular by RosaLinde Leipzig e.V., which is now replaced by the newly founded association. The Leipzig CSD has always worked with grassroots democratic structures, which is why the board of CSD Leipzig e.V. should also recognize these structures and take their majority opinion into account in its work and implement it as far as possible.
The members of the association are committed to the already established structure and functioning of the CSD plenum with the involvement of the queer community of our city as well as actors from other associations, institutions and political parties. The cooperation in the plenum as the central planning and decision-making body as well as in the individual teams is open to all people who share our goals and values and is not linked to a membership in the CSD Leipzig e.V. More information about our working methods and organizational structure can be found here.
The founding assembly of January 6th 2023 elected the following board for two years.
(The names are in alphabetical order. The statutes of the association do not provide for a chair of the board.)
