A typical Christopher Street Day Parade includes floats as well as walking groups usually provided by and made up of members of LGBT organizations, but is increasingly used also as a platform for political campaigning and commercial advertising as floats by political parties and commercially sponsored trucks are becoming more common. It is also typical to see many drag queens or women and men (mostly the latter) scantily dressed. The parade is usually quite joyous and has a rather upbeat and exciting energy to it.
After the parade a festival with a stage for political speakers and entertainers commences.
