The month of June is full of queer highlights in Salzburg. Maybe one or the other date fits into your travel plans?
The British writer Christopher Isherwood made acquaintance with a very libertarian Berlin and a first flowering of gay life in public from 1929 to 1933. He wrote the book “Goodbye to Berlin“ on which the musical Cabaret by Joe Masteroff is based, first performed in New York in 1966. To be seen at the Salzburg Landestheater on 1, 8 and 12.06.
On Friday, 3.06., women from Salzburg and the surrounding area will come together again for a casual Ladies Night at the HOSI Bar. On Saturday, 4.06., the long awaited first HOSI-Fest will take place in Corona. The biggest gay clubbing in Salzburg, held four times a year at ARGE Kultur, brings a colourful scene of all genders to party together until the early morning. And it is also an important economic event for the work of HOSI Salzburg.
Tuesday 7.06. is the first of three Queer History(s) dates at the Hallein Celtic Museum. For the Pride season 2022, the Celtic Museum wants to follow homoerotic traces of history. Barbara Tober will trace sex in the imagery of the Romans at 6 pm in the Celtic Museum Hallein.

On 25.06., Roman Forisch will take those interested in history on a queer city tour.
