17 Embassies support Athens Pride 2016

Diplomats from the Embassies of Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, the UK, and the USA in Greece will once again be expressing their support for the Athens Pride festival and parade on June 11, 2016 by taking part in the day-long event.

The theme of this year’s Athens Pride “Women are Made Not Born / Men are Made Not Born” pays special attention to the challenges transgender people encounter.  Our countries strongly support the rights of all LGBT people as part of our commitment to universal human rights.

Annual LGBT pride events take place around the world, usually in June.  Pride events, along with the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) in May, serve to reaffirm the equality and dignity of all persons, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
