Dear Queers, dear Allies!
On June 24th 2023 we will meet at 2pm at Hauptbahnhof for the third Queer Pride Dresden.
At about 3:30pm we will make a brief stop at Theaterplatz and listen to some of the great speeches of the day. The march ends at Alaunplatz at 5pm.
Please write to us if you have a concern.
Route and directions
The route stretches about 5,5km. We will only walk on flat ground and thus the route is completely wheelable.

What to bring and what to leave?
Don’t forget to bring water, snacks, sun screen and ear protection if necessary. Pride is the perfect place to present yourself and your outfit. Please avoid logos from police/army and stuff tha looks like weapons. Because Stonewall was a riot, and we don‘t want to idolize repression. FFP2-Masks are welcome, as are puppies. There is no room for racism, sexism, queerphobia and anti-semitism at Pride!
Carnality, Kink & Consent
Queer smooching, free hugs and kinks have their rightful place at Pride – as long as everyone
involved is giving consent. If in doubt, please ask other persons before hugging them etc.!
Not having to hide one’s own body can be a great and empowering experience. We ask men who go topless in particular to be mindful so that others do not feel uncomfortable and constricted by that. Please be considerate and bring a spare T-shirt to be on the safe side.
Let‘s be gentle with each other so that we can be dangerous together!
Awareness and first aid
There will be helpers you can talk to if you don’t feel well or safe or if you experience something unpleasant. Don’t hesitate to contac our awareness team. We also have street medics dealing with medical problems and emergencies.
Are there options for childcare during the demonstration?
We are offering childrens’ care at the Alaunpark for the time of our demonstration.
Your child should be at least two years old, we cannot offer care for younger children.
If you’re interested, please send an email to KinderbetreuungDD@protonmail.com until 23.06.2023 including the following information:
