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 recognised 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.
