From the community, for the community
Leipzig Pride is a democratic action alliance. We meet every second Wednesday of the month for a plenary session. During these meetings, we discuss positions on content, jointly select an annual thematic focus, elect Pride ambassadors and plan the week of events, the demonstration and the street festival. The plenum makes all fundamental decisions democratically. The individual tasks are then implemented by several teams. The plenum and active participation in the Pride organisation is open to all people who share our demands and values.
We look forward to seeing you!
You can also volunteer at Leipzig Pride and help us to organise it.
Whether it’s organising the demonstration, preparing for the event week, planning the stage programme for our street festival, decorating or looking for sponsors, we always need committed volunteers. There is plenty to do.
As Leipzig Pride , it is our goal to stand up for all facets of the queer spectrum. In order to reflect the ideas and positions of the entire community, it is of course essential that the most diverse queer people find their way into our organisation team. We would therefore like to call on and encourage women, young and older people, BIPoC, inter, non-binary and trans people as well as people with disabilities in particular to take part in the plenum, enrich us with your ideas, opinions and demands and actively contribute to the organisation of Leipzig Pride.
All important decisions are made in the plenum, our planning meeting. This is where guidelines for advertising, sponsorship, social media or the website, for example, are determined, who we want to co-operate with, what demands we make or what motto we choose for the current year. In short, this is where we define the framework conditions and the central elements of Leipzig Pride. The detailed work then takes place in the individual teams. Each participant can make suggestions to the plenum, which are then discussed and voted on.
As a Pride cannot be organised with just one monthly meeting and in order to be able to divide the numerous tasks according to strengths, skills and interests, we have formed various teams. Each team deals with a specific area of responsibility, such as organising the street festival or planning the stage programme.
The team leaders, who are elected annually, are in close and regular contact with each other in order to coordinate their work as well as possible between the plenary sessions.
The logistical backbone of our work is CSD Leipzig e.V. This association accepts donations and takes care of legal matters, for example. Participation in the Pride, in the plenum or in the teams, is possible regardless of membership in the association.
Involvement in Leipzig Pride is very diverse and varied. From participating in the plenum and contributing your own ideas and demands to active involvement in one or more teams, there is something for everyone and their individual abilities!
We have formed the following teams to structure our work and focus on specific topics.
So that you know who to contact if you are interested in working in one of the teams, you will also find the names of the respective team leaders for each team.
We are always looking for helping hands and creative enrichment in all areas. Below you will find the teams that are currently most in need of support.
The following teams are currently looking for additional members:
- Sponsoring & Cooperation
- Street festival
Further information can be found above under the respective teams.
New team leaders are also needed in the Booking and Award teams!
You don’t quite know yet which team would be the right one for you or maybe you just want to get a taste of the organisation of CSD Leipzig without any obligation?
That’s no problem at all! Come along to the plenum, take a look at everything in peace and get talking to us. So far, everyone has found a job with us that is fun and in which their individual skills and strengths are expressed!
