The Athens Pride Parade started at Syntagma Square on Saturday at 18:30.
The day’s events started at midday with face and body painting with the colors of the rainbow along with DJ’s putting on their favourite tunes. The party after the parade will start at 21:00 and go through to midnight.
It will be the 14th consecutive year the Pride event is held in Athens, and this year’s theme is femininity. Annual LGBTQI pride events take place around the world, usually in June. Pride events serve to reaffirm the equality and dignity of all people.
