With over 1.6 million visitors, Pride Cologne 2022 was the mega comeback and finale of our Pride Month. For many years we have been proud participants in CSD demonstrations to raise visibility and awareness about LGBTQI issues. Together with the support of our partners CLARK and friends from All In Artist Management, YOUciety Artists and Mehr-BB Entertainment, we hosted this year's most tomboyish pre-party in the new Moulin Rouge Lounge at the Musical Dome.
On parade day, our truck - loaded with many of our great FAQ YOU Brand Ambassadors - started the parade. Accompanied by shrieks by fans on every street corner, we made our way through Cologne's city centre, spreading our message to all onlookers along with our good humour: Love is Love - be who you are.
Special thanks are due this year to our partner CLARK, who are committed to diversity together with us.
"With our cooperation, we want to help ensure that as many people as possible know about such innovative formats. For years, we have proudly showcased the diversity of our teams. We are happy to have such a diverse team and want to build on this, continue to learn and improve in the future. With the ohhh! foundation's FAQ YOU initiative, we have the right partner to do this, with its innovative ideas and actions driving forward topics such as diversity, inclusion and healthcare," says Chris Lodde, CMO and Co-Founder of CLARK.
In order to provide young people with information and support, we have published a separate Pride Special on our educational platform on the occasion of Pride Month to bundle and complement the numerous existing articles. Here, everyone can inform themselves and learn that they are not alone. The Pride was a great opportunity to inform everyone about our educational offers.
