Queer Munich Events, Meetups, And Activities This Weekend
This weekend is filled up with a fantastic selection of activities for all. Have a look below to find your queer community weekend plans in Munich.
Queer Film Festival Munich
Come take part in a selection of queer short and feature films that highlight the uniqueness of their perspectives on universal human themes like identity, growth, and parenthood.
In a world where right-wing populists seek to marginalize alternative lifestyles, this festival aims to shed light on these diverse viewpoints.
Sadly, violence and discrimination persist against the LGBTIQ* community globally, even in parts of Europe. Through the festival, the hope is to make a positive contribution to these issues.
When: October 10 – 15
Where: Multiple locations across Munich
Cost: Full pass €50
