Like every year there is Pride Week. It is kind of a custom for me by now to go to the Christoper Street Day in the beginning of August. Although I have to say that this year was probably the best so far. I'm not sure why. Maybe because we such great weather (CSD in rain is awful), or maybe the atmosphere was especially good (not just party atmosphere but I had the feeling it was far more political) or maybe so many friends of mine came to celebrate. Marie and Nina, Lisa and Indra, Carina (far from Japan!), my dearest Jenn (was it the first time we went to the CSD together??)...
Well, let's start at the beginning of Pride Week. Because of work I was just able to do a little at the weekends, but at least there were some parties in for me. Like the pride night party, I was there with Lisa, Indra and Maike (a friend of them both). Because I was sick I couldn't stay long, but at least I could dance a little. Here some photos of that evening:
Lisa painted our hands with rainbows for that occasion. I was sad that I had to go so early, but I didn't really feel that well so that was the better thing to do. So the following weekend was the CSD. The whole week was just rainy and bad weather and I was really afraid we would be without luck but then it was super sunny and warm and I even got a slight sunburn.
While we were waiting for the parade to start Lisa was painting the rainbow theme again.
I am so happy that I got a good photo of Olivia Jones.
It was such a great day and I was quite exhausted at the end, but it was so worth it to see all my friends and had so much fun.
