Building Pride through LGBT Business

Every day, we here stories of businesses that refuse to sell to the LGBT community claiming it somehow violates their Religious Freedom. And we think that is a good thing.  Why? Because, I want to know if I am spending my hard earned dollars in a business that discriminates against against my community. I appreciate them telling me they oppose marriage equality or gender equality – because I can go spend my money someplace that supports equal rights.

LGBT owned independent businesses return a percentage of each dollar you spend back to our community. For example, bear businesses put that dollar back into the community through bear runs, bear media, and contributions to local non-profit organizations and political organizations.

We believe the best path to equality is financial empowerment.

CSD Madgeburg 2015

CSD Madgeburg 2015

History of Christopher Street Day

It’s the year 1969, more precisely 27 June this year. The bar “Stonewall Inn” in New York’s Christopher Street is well stocked. It is a special place, a place where the gay man, the lesbian, the drag queen and all others who do not fit into the socially accepted sexual schema, once may be the way they are. It is among his peers and a piece feels far more secure than out on the street, where it is better not to far moved out of his gender role out, did not want to be beaten up or raped. But appearances are deceptive security.No, also in the Stonewall Inn is one, just as in the other gay venues, not sure. Occasionally passes a band of policemen and conducts a raid, bringing more arrests by itself, partially associated with a disproportionate violence the police.But the atmosphere is bubbling. How long is this going to last? Against 1:20 clock it’s time again.But something is different. Why the police dive time on so late? This time there are arrests, but now enough is enough. The first fight back and soon there is a brawl. The police are forced to retire to the bar. But the situation escalated further. More and more people are added and more police reinforcement is called. Last fight about 2,000 protesters against 400 policemen. When the Tactical Patrol Force is drawn to help resolve the protests slowly, but repeated in subsequent nights. These so-called Stonewall Riots sparked a gay liberation movement. End July 1969 was formed the Gay Liberation Front, a political lesbian and gay group which advocated the liberation of gays and lesbians. Through them lesbians and gays became visible in society. Soon the GLF was represented in many cities and universities in the country. In 1970, the GLF the Christopher Street Liberation Day Committee, which carried out a march from Greenwich Village to Central Park to commemorate the Stonewall riots. Between 5,000 and 10,000 people participated in the march. This tradition was repeated annually as Christopher Street Liberation Day held every last Saturday in June and found numerous imitations in other cities. In Germany there was on 29 April 1972 in Münster, the first major lesbian and gay demonstration. The CSD wave sloshed over but only in 1979. In Bremen and Berlin found in the year instead of the first Christopher Street Day, which were still quite manageable with several hundred participants. Since then attracted more and more German cities by now and the CSD is celebrated in more than 40 locations in Germany. The Magdeburg CSD tradition dates back to 2000. This was preceded by a number of endeavors to celebrate a CSD in Saxony-Anhalt, between the three major cities Magdeburg, Halle and Dessau should change. So already found the end of the 20th century twice a CSD in Magdeburg.

Had a result of the closure of the Men’s Club and the dissolution of the Gay Men’s Club eV the CSD failed in 2008 and was organized in 2009 on a smaller scale from LSVD Saxony-Anhalt: the typical Magdeburg CSD with Liebig Street Festival and cultural week there were from 2000 year with one exception. Since the CSD grows back, took place in 2010 back to the Liebig Street and established in the same year the gay pride through the Magdeburg city center. 2012 pulled the CSD street festival again to, but just around the corner in the Hegelstraße. In addition, this was the first under the leadership of the association, founded in 2011 CSD Magdeburg eV conducted Christopher Street Day. With a renewed move to the Altenmarkt in 2014 the CSD moved directly into the local political center of Magdeburg before the town hall.

The CSD eV Germany holds in this video again the basic concerns of the CSD together:

June 21, 2015

Folsom Street East – Folsom Street East is the largest fetish block party on the East Coast; this year’s theme is “THE NEW YORK YOU WERE WARNED ABOUT.” FSE is proud to share visual branding illustrated for the 2015 Street Fair by visionary comic book creator Phil Jimenez.

Serving the leather/fetish/kink community, the LGBT community and New York City at large. Our biggest annual event is the Folsom Street East street festival, the largest outdoor fetish street festival on the eastern coast, which brings thousands of sexy kinksters out onto the streets of New York City on a summer afternoon to celebrate sexual diversity and expression. With your support, Folsom Street East has donated more than $250,000 since the first street fair in 1997 to local community organizations. New York, NY.

“Folsom Street East is a celebration of the rebellious spirit of the New York kink and fetish scene, and our imagery for this year’s fair depicts our community in all its vibrant diversity,” said Paul Harrison Phillips, Communications Manager for Folsom Street East. “We’re immensely grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Phil Jimenez to realize an ass-kicking vision of our modern city that never sleeps.”

“As a New Yorker, a longtime fan of the Folsom Street East street fair, and a supporter of the organization’s mission and community engagement, I jumped at the chance to work with FSE to create the imagery for this year’s event,” said Jimenez.

This year’s Street Fair will directly benefit two NYC-based non-profit organizations serving fetish, kink, and LGBTQ communities: the New York City Anti-Violence Project (AVP) and Visual AIDS.

Folsom Street East 2015 will feature live stage entertainment representing the immense talents of the NYC LGBT and kink community, as well as a beer garden hosted by The Eagle NYC. A full line-up of stage entertainment, running from 12 PM to 4 PM, will be announced in the weeks before the event.

“We’re excited to bring Folsom Street East back to 27th Street for another amazing year,” said Street Fair co-producer Gary Martin. “Whether it’s your first Folsom Street East, or your 18th, whether you love to show off in a harness and jock, or just love to socialize with New Yorkers in the sunshine and support our community organizations, we hope you’ll join us!”
