CSD.Hannover will be held according to the motto #consider. To our understanding, that means that solidarity in our society and standing up for one another are only possible when people actively contribute and participate. The medial focus of 2017 will be on the German federal elections. A shift to the right has been registered at federal, regional and community levels, negatively influencing our society. Only by getting people to #consider, are we able to challenge this development and ensure a respectful coexistence. At the same time, it is important to us to call attention to exclusions within our own communities. We must resolutely counter racism, sexism, and discrimination based on religion, origin, age, social background, HIV status and/or disability within the queer scene!
