2023 can come
The turn of the year is just around the corner. 2022 was a year of new beginnings in Salzburg from a queer perspective. 2023 can come!
A remarkable year 2022 from a queer perspective is coming to an end in Salzburg. There is a spirit of optimism. Gigi LaPajette celebrated the first Long Night of Diversity in 2022 after Corona. Salzburg Pride this year was the biggest ever. A whole Pride Week full of events and a brilliant CSD Saturday with the biggest parade Salzburg has ever seen with about 5800 participants. And on top of that, a Pride Night in a class of its own. This year, the HOSI Salzburg moved from its old location in Gabelsberger Straße on the outskirts of the Andräviertel into the public eye – to Franz-Josef-Straße 22. The calendar for queer-relevant events is getting busier and busier – things are happening in Salzburg!
What’s next? Mexxx will continue to be the place to go for everyone over the New Year. Opening hours also over the turn of the year: daily.
The HOSI Salzburg is finalising the furnishing of the new rooms in Franz-Josef-Straße 22 and offers the regular opening hours of the HOSI bar. And these are apparently well used. In the new year, the official inauguration party of the HOSI Salzburg for members & friends will take place on 20 January.
Wolfgang from the Dark Eagle is taking it easy and is open on Thursday and Friday (22.+23.12.), then again from 28.-30.12. and then on holiday. The Dark Eagle will be back from 18.01. The Sexy Sunday Afternoon underwear party in January is on the 22nd, the fourth Sunday. From February, it will be back on the 3rd Sunday.
Ballet Gala in aid of AIDS-Hilfe Salzburg
The Winter Festival in the Volksgarten, the largest festival for circus arts in the German-speaking world, presents exciting artists from the fields of pantomime, acrobatics and clowning until 8 January. From 26.01. to 5.02. the Mozart Week is the first cultural festival of the year in Salzburg: orchestral concerts, chamber concerts, scenic performances, film and much more. The Mozart Week is the largest Mozart festival in the world. In February, the queer film evening continues at DAS Kino. The ballet gala on 18 February at the Salzburg Landestheater is another highlight. The planning for the Long Night of Diversity and the CSD in September (28.08. to 3.09.) is underway. We can be excited about this dynamic.
Salzburg is always great, as this photo from the day before yesterday (19.12.) proves: a dramatic sunset in front of the Untersberg massif.
