Greece is a destination known across the world for its vivacious and diverse nightlife; it’s the perfect choice for those who want to have great fun, leaving their cares and problems behind.

The purpose of athens pride is to maximize the visibility of lgbt people in greece and to promote and develop their rights and claims.
