lesvos womens festival
Greece has come a long way in liberating its LGBTQ+ community, but it still has a long way to go. In 2018, IGLTA-Europe assessed 49 European countries on gay rights and Greece was found to have the highest improvements. Here are a few LGBTQ+ highlights that should be celebrated:
- Homosexual activity between males has been legal since 1951, whereas female homosexuality has always been legal (and by legal, we mean ignored entirely which in this case is great!).
- Discrimination in the workplace has been illegal since 2005.
- Same-sex couples are allowed to enter a civil union.
- LGBTQ+ peeps are allowed to serve in the military.
We wish we could jump on Greece's back with the LGBTQ+ movement and shout GIDDY UP, but everyone has to start somewhere and we’re super proud of the progress Greece is making. 🌈
