— Update — Many of you have asked us over the weekend if our picnic will still go ahead as planned.
The short answer to this question is – yes.

We were, as many of you, taken a bit by surprise by how events unfolded last week but above all are happy that Germany seems to be taking a big step forward towards equal rights for everyone.

What we also have seen in recent weeks is a heated discussion, not only on this page, but especially a public debate on the actual topic of marriage equality and what it actually means.

To us this is a question about basic human rights.

We believe in the principle that discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation has no place in modern society. Therefore, creating a seperate institution to distinguish between marriage for heterosexuals and ‘partnerships’ for gay couples is not the way forward as it enshrines discrimination in law.

We also believe in the freedom to express one’s opinion.

Angela Merkel (reluctantly) allowed a free parliamentary vote on opening up marriage for everyone. Regardless of her intentions, this was the right decision to take.
Angela Merkel has the right to oppose marriage equality.
Regardless of her argumentation to oppose, you have your voting right. Use it in September!

It’s time to celebrate but we of course had to update our event theme.

Many conservative/right wing voices seem to oppose marriage equality because of their traditional family values.

To them we say — Welcome to the year 2017!
Let’s celebrate being a modern, diverse, open society.

We are family!

— English translation below — Lasst uns einen schönen und entspannten gemeinsamen Tag im Park verbringen!

Du stehst für Menschenrechte und Gleichberechtigung? Dann werde Teil unserer Gruppe und picknicke mit uns! Bitte bringe deine eigenen Getränke und dein eigenes Essen bitte und hinterlasse den Platz so wie du ihn vorgefunden hast.

Wir wollen eine bunt durchgemischte Gruppe von Menschen aus den verschiedensten Bereichen des Lebens zusammenbringen und daran erinnern, dass sexuelle Diskriminierung in der heutigen Gesellschaft keinen findet.

Im Laufe des Tages wollen wir Bilder vor dem Reichstag mit einer Regenbogenflagge mit euch zusammen machen und diese verbreiten, um zu zeigen, das jeder das Recht auf Gleichberechtigung in der Liebe hat.

Wichtig – Dies ist kein Protestmarsch oder Demonstration. Nichtsdestotrotz dürft ihr natürlich gerne eure eigenen Regenbogenflaggen oder Schilder mitbringen, um eure Nachricht zu verdeutlichen.

Und wer weiß – vielleicht trefft ihr ja euren Traumprinz oder eure Traumfrau an diesem hoffentlich sonnigen Tag!

*********************************************

Come chill in the park with views of the Reichstag!

If you care about equal rights, come sit with us in front of the Reichstag and join our picnic – bring your own drinks and food and make sure to keep the place clean.

We want to bring together a colorful group of people from all walks of life who believe that any discrimination based on sexual orientation, has no place in a modern society.

During the afternoon we will take photos of happy couples (or couples to be) draped in rainbow flags in front of the Reichstag. We will use these images to bring the message across that love knows no boundaries and that all couples should be treated equally / have the same rights.

The backdrop of the Reichstag is self-explanatory.

Please note: this is not a demonstration or a protest march but feel free to bring your rainbow flags, protest signs or whatever you feel may re-enforce our message.

And who knows – you may just meet your future Mr. or Mrs. to be on this hopefully sunny day!
