Germany: Pride celebrates 40th anniversary at Berlin parade

Berlin's LGBT community held its 40th annual Pride parade (Christopher Street Day parade), through the city on Saturday. In attendance was the US Ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, as well as representatives from German political parties including the CDU, the Greens and the SPD. One of the demonstrators criticised the CDU's participation, citing many of the CDU members' opposition to... Еще same-sex marriage. He explained, «I think it's difficult when, for example, the CDU is here that had blocked the opening up of marriage [laws]; I don't really know what the CDU want to do here.» The Alternative for Germany (AfD), however, were excluded from the parade. A member of the Lesbian Friend Circle supported the decision to not allow the AfD's participation. She said, «It is correct that, for example, the AfD is excluded, to say that they don't stand up for these ideas. Because of this, they don't have anything to do here.»
