LGBT Rights in Greece
The state of LGBTQ+ rights has made significant progress in recent years in Greece, although hardships and inequalities still persist in areas outside of the major cities. The country has undergone a widespread legal and societal transformation that has begun to improve the rights and protections for LGBTQ+ individuals.
When it comes to legal advancements, Greece decriminalised same-sex sexual activity in 1951, and in 2015, the Greek Parliament passed a law that recognized civil partnerships for same-sex couples, granting them legal recognition and many of the same rights as married heterosexual couples. However, marriage equality has still not been achieved, as same-sex marriages are not legally recognised.
The legal system in Greece prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in employment and certain other areas. However, LGBTQ+ individuals continue to face discrimination and social stigma in various aspects of their lives. Homophobic and transphobic attitudes persist in some parts of society, especially in more remote and rural areas.
On a positive note, Athens, the capital city, has a vibrant LGBTQ+ community with a thriving nightlife scene, with an annual Pride parade that attracts thousands of participants from across the globe. LGBTQ+ organizations and advocacy groups in Greece actively work to promote equal rights and social acceptance.
Though LGBTQ+ travellers can enjoy visiting all areas of Greece’s diverse landscape, the gorgeous island of Mykonos is a particular favorite amongst the LGBTQ+ community. In Mykonos, you’ll find a plethora of gay-focused bars and clubs as well as some of Europe’s most beautiful gay beaches.
Embodying the understated elegance Mykonos is famous for, the Bachelor Suites have king-size beds and a sitting area. The suite is 38 m2 and the bathrooms are bright and spacious.
You can also upgrade to a Superior Two Bedrooms Suite if you’re travelling in a larger group.
Mykonos is one of Greece’s best honeymoon destinations. These spacious suites are 43 sq. meters. The outdoor jacuzzi and lounge area is ideal for a romantic trip. The private veranda offers direct Aegean views.
You can also opt for an even larger suite with a private outdoor pool.
The latest addition to Bill & Coo is the 80 sq. meter villa. It has an extensive outdoor living area and a private pool. Soak up some rays on the sundeck. This is one of the most luxurious villas in Mykonos.
Food And Drink
Executive Chef Ntinos Fotinakis presides over one of the best kitchens in Mykonos. Enjoy al fresco dining by the infinity pool with sea views. Expect Mediterranean cuisine with locally sourced ingredients. Head to the Sunset Lounge Bar at cocktail hour.
