Gay Berlin Parties

Folsom EuropeWithout doubt, Berlin is not only capital but also gay-lesbian capital of Germany. Highlights on the agenda are definitely CSD (Christopher Street Day) and Pride Week with a large streetfair in and around Motzstraße in Berlin-Schöneberg and last but not least the fetish specials. Leather guys and fetish lovers meet at Folsom Europe Berlin for the 6th time this year, it is so-to-say the little brother of the big San Francisco event.

For many years fetish friends and leather lovers have been meeting at Easter for the Berliner Leder und Fetischtreffen, this classic event is brought on by Berliner Leder und Fetisch e. V. with parties culminatingin the German Mr Leather contest.

Hustlaball Berlin

Hustlaball with it's "world of hustlers, hookers, pimps, streetwalkers, flesh-peddlers, porn stars and other scandalous sorts" takes place this year in October 21 2011 at Munze (Molkenmarkt 2) the old Mint building.

Wigstoeckel is an extravaganza for transgender people that takes place each fall.. Check their website for more information and photos of previous events.

A big gay/lesbian annual party for Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg called Parkfest Friedrichshain takes place in Volkspark with thousands in attendance and lots of local talent; this year's party takes place on August 20 2011.

Xenon KinoFor film lovers, Verzaubert, the international queer film festival that moves between Munich, Frankfurt, Cologne and Berlin is the event of the year, and one of the most important gay festivals in the world. Programs and venues for 2011 dates will be posted on their website as they are organized.

Yorck has a list of interesting films around town. Mongay, is a the gay Monday night cult movie screening at Kino International (Karl-Marx-Allee 33), the former GDR's classiest cinema. Berlin's Gay/Lesbian cinema Xenon Kino (Kolonnenstrasse 5-6) is like a year-round gay film-fest with new films weekly from around the world. The CineStar IMAX at the Sony Center in Potsdamer Platz screens mainstream films in their original languages -- which usually means English.

Perverts takes place at the Glashaus (Eichenstrasse 4)in September as the opening event of the annual Folsom Europe events, one of two dates for this men-only leather/fetish/skin/rubber event (Good Friday is the other). The decor and ambiance is industrial on two levels (each with DJ), with glass block dance floor lightshows; and they typically draw a crowd of over 1500. Check out event CDs at the Mister B store. They also have dark rooms, a porn cinema, and chill-out areas in this former GDR border patrol/tram maintenance building. Pig is the other big Folsom party event, (this year it was Saturday September 5), also men-only with a strict leather, rubber, uniform or skin dress code.

Berlin PrideAs a part of the Gay Pride festivities, Schoeneberg is the annual site of Berlin's Lesbian and Gay City Festival, Gay Stadtfest, Europe's largest queer open-air event, each third weekend in June. Main stages attract the largest crowds, but surrounding streets, stages, clubs and beer gardens get packed in all directions with over 350,000 people in attendance.

On the following weekend the Christopher Street Day parade includes a hundred floats that proceed from the Kurfurstendamm to the Siegessaeule with half a million or so people, and more than a few playful shenanigans in public.
