Why should I participate in Thessaloniki Pride?
I participate in Thessaloniki Pride, because:
✔ equal rights for same-sex couples
✔ abolition of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity
✔ the dignity that every gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender person deserves within society
✔ sexual education at school
✔ legal protection from hate speech by religious and political leaders
✔ eradication of homophobia-transphobia
✔ those who stood up and fought against the violence they suffered at the Stonewall Inn in 1969
✔ those who have fought for LGBT rights around the globe
I learn about:
✔ the Stonewall Inn and the origins of the LGBTΙ movement
✔ LGBTΙ rights in my country
✔ incidents of homophobia-transphobia in my city and what I can do about them
✔ how to protect my health
I send the message:
✔ that sexual diversity is acceptable not only privately, but also publicly
✔ that Thessaloniki is a city that is open and tolerant of any type of minority
✔ that no one should be ashamed of their sexual identity
✔ alterity and the social wealth it provides
✔ the harmonious coexistence of all sexual identities within the fabric of society
✔ and become acquainted with people who share my concerns
✔ and flirt and enjoy myself at parties and artistic events
