"Approximately 130 task forces and 60 vehicles are ready to go," announced the Berliner Stadtreinigung (BSR) on Friday, 26 July 2019. Last year, the employees followed the parade in T-shirts saying "Jetzt kehrt Liebe ein" and with vehicles decorated with a rainbow symbol. The aim was to stand up for diversity. In 2018, around 155 cubic metres of waste were collected at the CSD.

"Stonewall 50 - Every riot starts with your voice

Half a million people are registered with the police for the demonstration under the motto "Stonewall 50 - Every riot starts with your voice". The parade starts at 12.30 p.m. at Kurfürstendamm/Johannisthaler Straße and ends at Brandenburg Gate. According to a police spokesperson, several hundred emergency personnel will accompany the parade. CSD parties will take place in several clubs in the evening.
