On Friday, January 6, 2023, more than 20 representatives of the Leipzig community came together to found the CSD Leipzig e.V.. Christopher Street Day Leipzig (CSD Leipzig) has existed since 1992 and celebrated its 30th birthday last year.
The colorful event week has been organized for many years by a volunteer organization team with the active support of the city of Leipzig. Carried the large meeting thereby by the Rosalinde Leipzig registered association.
As meanwhile the biggest CSD in Eastern Germany (with the exception of Berlin) an organizational development became necessary and therefore we decided to found the CSD Leipzig as an association. The Rosalinde Leipzig remains closely connected to the new association.
In addition to the decision of the association statutes and contribution rules, the founding members also elected a five-member founding board. Jasmin Gräwel, Sandra Kamphake, Georg Teichert, Sebastian Thiele and Marco Witt were elected as the board and will now implement the further steps, such as registration in the register of associations.
The tasks of the CSD Plenum as the organizing team of the Leipzig CSD remain unaffected by the foundation of the association. There are still a few formalities to be clarified before the association can start its work. All those who want to support us in the future as members of the association, we ask for a little patience! We will keep you informed as soon as membership applications are available.
