Events for the community at the Wiesn: That was Gay-Sunday in the Bräurosl and Co. 2022
Oktoberfest has been a meeting place for the LGBTIQ* community for many years. Some of the events have already achieved cult status and took place again in 2022. These were the highlights:
September 18, 2022: Gay-Sunday at the Bräurosl.
The classic: More than 40 years ago, the gay Munich Lions Club (MLC) created the Gay-Sunday. Every first Sunday of the Wiesn, the gay and lesbian community meets all day in the Bräurosl tent. For the 43rd Oktoberfest meeting on September 18, 2022, the association reserved 600 tickets for the MLC balcony in the festival tent (these ticket holders get exclusive access). The rest of the tent was of course free to enter, but is predominantly visited by the LGBTIQ* community. An official after-Wiesn party went up at the NY Club starting at 10pm.

September 19, 2022: RoslMontag at the Bräurosl
Since it often gets quite crowded on Gay-Sunday, there was an unofficial, free gay get-together at Bräurosl one day later - "RoslMontag". On September 19, 2022, starting at 3 p.m., gays and lesbians once again came together casually. Meeting places for all LGBTIQ* were the beer garden of the Bräurosl (to the right of the main entrance) and the back part in the beer tent (under the balcony). There was no reservation.

September 25, 2022: ProudWiesn in the Armbrustschützen tent
The ProudWiesn is a fairly new date for the community, which two LGTBIQ* groups of companies (from BMW and Diversity Tourism) have created and which already had over 300 participants* before the Corona forced break. The target group is then also mainly members of diverse LGBTIQ* business groups and their friends. Reservation tickets were required to attend on Sunday, September 25, 2022 starting at 5pm in the Crossbow Tent. More info and reservations at proudwiesn.com.
26 September 2022: Prosecco-Wiesn in the Fischer-Vroni
The "Prosecco-Wiesn" looks back on a tradition of more than 30 years. On the second Monday of the Wiesn, the LGBTIQ* community comes together in the Fischer-Vroni starting in the early afternoon. In the smallest of the large Wiesn tents, it can get quite crowded quite early on. The name of this meeting place comes from the former organizer, the owner of the Prosecco Bar.
Tip: And at the very end, the community meets (also quite unofficially) for the Kehraus on the last day of the Wiesn in the Schottenhamel tent at the kitchen counter.
