Public relations and awareness training to promote the acceptance of people with different sexual orientations and gender identities in rural areas at all levels of social life.
To counter misunderstandings - What does CSD mean?
The Christopher Street Day (CSD) is a historic commemoration day of the first known resistance of homosexuals and transsexuals to state and social discrimination. The CSD finds its origin on June 28, 1969 in the bar "Stonewall Inn" in New York's Christopher Street. As part of the commemoration day, political demonstrations take place worldwide in the summer months.
The achievment and effect of the movement on our contemporary society is particularly politically positive, but there is a need for continued political and social engagement, especially in rural areas, to promote the acceptance of people of different sexual orientations and gender identities at all levels of social life. For the realization of the goals the CSD Cloppenburg e.V. pursues exclusively charitable purposes.
It is a matter of the heart of our association to make contact with our fellow human beings, to share things in common, but also to reveal differences, to achieve awareness training and to make a strong statement for the acceptance of diversity in our beautiful region and elsewhere. For that purpose, we organize a political demonstration and rally every year in the 25th calendar week as part of the CSD as well as a growing, political and cultural supporting program. In addition, we organize other events throughout the year, such as information, discussion and film events, exhibitions and lectures. We also support events in our region and work with local and national associations. Additional information about our association and activities can be found on our homepage
No matter who you love or who you are, with us you are very welcome. Whether as a sponsor or full member, in active association work or in the form of donations, we look forward to your support.
