Lesbian and Gay City Festival

Lesbian and Gay City Festival Berlin
15.00 - 22.00 Nollendorfplatz

June is the month for celebrating Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender issues across the world and few cities do it better than Berlin. In fact the Lesbian and Gay Festival is the largest one in Europe.

The festival is held at Nollendorfplatz in Schöneberg which is an area that is popular with the gay residents of Berlin. This year the slogan for the festival is “Equal rights for the unequal”.

The event opener at 3pm on Saturday is “The Wild Sofa” on the main stage. German TV personality Gerhard Hoffmann receives famous guests like political leaders and football managers on the sofa and puts them through the meat grinder. This is one of the biggest highlights of the festival so don’t miss it.

The festival is really more of a huge street party with food stalls, music and street performers everywhere. And while the main emphasis is on the fun aspect, you may notice plenty of booths which give info on LGBT issues in the real world. The entertainment will range from cultured acts like soprano Azusa Nakaoka and soul singer Bobby Melange to the camp-it-up acts like the Berlin Queerados – Berlin’s legendary gay line-dancing group, and progressive pop band Jimmy und die Stricherjungs.

The U-bahn runs right through the middle of Nollendorfplatz so just head for the station on the U1, U2, U3 or U4 depending on your starting point.

Bearing in mind Schöneberg is the heart of the gay scene in Berlin, if you are looking to head out to a club after the festival you can expect plenty of great bars nearby. Try Prinzknecht nearby on Fuggerstrasse for a relaxed, good time. Or try the Axel Hotel on Lietzenburger Str for a slightly more up-market bar with a great cabaret show.

You can get to Nollendorfplatz in less than 40 minutes by either bus or by subway.
