SolidarityNow welcomes & participates in the Pride Festival 2022

Raising awareness actions implemented in Thessaloniki

At SolidarityNow we are celebrating one more year of the LGBTQI community Pride Festival, which takes place from 10th to 18th and 20th to 25th of June 2022, in Athens and Thessaloniki respectively and we declare our presence for an “unconditional” “lesson of acceptance“, inclusion, visibility and equality, such as the slogans in the two cities.

More specifically, SolidarityNow participates in the 10th Thessaloniki Pride Festival, which is dedicated to education with a demand to become more modern and inclusive. In the framework of the festival, SolidarityNow invites professionals who work in support of the LGBTQI refugees, migrants and asylum seekers, in the online training seminar that aims to inform, educate and train on issues related to the LGBTQI community of refugees and asylum seekers and on new methods and best practices.

The webinar* will take place on Thursday 23rd of June, 10:00-12:30. For those interested in participating, they can register here.

New edition of educational material

The new educational booklet developed by SolidarityNow under the title “Useful Guide for Professionals in the field of LGBTQI+ Migrants, Refugees, Asylum Seekers” will be presented during the webinar. This guide provides intelligible, grouped information and best practices that makes it a useful tool for the employees in the field, just as well for anyone who wants to be informed about the basic terminology regarding the LGBTQI+ community.

Walking side by side

Thessaloniki Pride Festival will end on Saturday 25th of June, with the great parade in the historic center of Thessaloniki. The SolidarityNow team will be there to walk the path of acceptance, equality and love.

* The webinar is organized in the framework of the European program “Not Alone in Europe”.
