On July 27, Embassy Berlin participated in Christopher Street Day 2019 with a bus bearing the slogan “70+ Countries Outlaw LGBTIQ People #NotACrime.” Ambassador Grenell and Matt Lashey were joined by Embassy staff, friends, and activists from five countries.  The five-hour pride parade through central Berlin passed through one million people celebrating on the streets. The Ambassador and staff members also handed out flags, stickers and Visit the USA pride guides to the enthusiastic and receptive crowd. #DecriminalizeHomosexuality #NotACrime
