About Athens Gay Pride

Athens Gay Pride Week is normally held the first week of June. The gay pride event of the Greek capital is celebratory with parties and events, but it also carries a strong social message. In recent time, the Greek capital has become increasingly more open towards the LGBTQ community, making Athens Gay Pride worth penciling into your gay events' calendar this year. 

Athens Gay Pride is a chance for the local LGBTQI community and organizations to put forward aims, activities and demands. Athens Pride also hosts a number of health organizations that offer vital information as well as free on-site HIV and STI testing. 

Program of Athens Gay Pride

For 2019, Athens Gay Pride will color the city streets during the first week of June. Previous Athens Gay Pride events have featured rainbow games, DJ sets, a Zumba party, and of course a parade and party. This year, the main parade and party day is June 8.

Celebrations for the Athens Gay Pride Parade will start around 5pm, however it will officially kick off at 7pm, and wind its way through the city streets. The Mayor of Athens, Georgios Kaminis, foreign diplomats and representatives of the Justice Ministry will also be present. The live show and party held at Syntagma Square keeps the Greek gays partying until midnight and beyond!

With an estimated 40,000 people expected to attend this year, what are you waiting for? We'll see you at Athens Gay Pride 2019.
