Athens Gay Pride 2021
In this spirit and given the difficult and unclear situation we live in, this year’s Athens Pride will fill the entire summer of 2021, including a dynamic week of events (July 18-25) and will continue with summer events, aiming to culminate in a central day, Saturday, September 11, which reminds us most of the Athens Pride of previous years.
Athens Pride is the annual celebration of the LGBTQ community in Greece and mixes strong social messaging with a unique Greek party atmosphere delivering a strong message each year.
The first celebration took place in June 2005. Although various “pride”
events had been held in the city since the mid-1980s, Athens Pride 2005 marked the first Pride Parade through the city center, in front of the Hellenic Parliament during daylight.
Festivities for the Athens Pride will start at 17:00 on the Saturday, while the official opening ceremony will take place at 19:00 in the presence of Athens Mayor, Giorgos Kaminis, foreign diplomats and representatives of the Justice Ministry.
A concert will take place at Syntagma Square later in the evening, it is the highlight of the event!
Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action
Gay Map of Athens
Hotels in and around the central Monastraki and Psiri districts are well located for exploring the city and are within easy reach of the gay nightlife in the nearby Gazi district. Gazi (or Gkazi) has become very trendy lately and is home to the gay village. It’s a good place to start out, with gay-friendly cafes and restaurants along with bars and nightclubs all around, and all within walking distance of one another. Places open, close, or change names quite frequently in Athens -but in this neighborhood just follow your gaydar and check the local flyers, and one place will lead to the next.
