PRESS RELEASE | SolidarityNow joins Athens Pride 2024


 

 

Athens, 13 June 2024

For the third year, SolidarityNow employees and volunteers participate in Athens Pride, proudly supporting the struggle of the LGBTQI+ community. This year, we will meet on Saturday 15 June 2024, at 19.00 at Syntagma Square, to walk together on the road of equality and respect!

The slogan “A LAW IS NOT ENOUGH“, brings forward the inadequacies of the laws concerning the LGBTQI+ community, even though the very important law of equality in marriage and childbearing for same-sex couples (Law 4089/2024), has been legalized and is a landmark for the efforts for protective legislation for LGBTQI+ people in Greece.

SolidarityNow, stands by the side of LGBTQI+ people, offering essential help and support. Through actions and interventions, the organization seeks to always be there for the community by offering free legal support and representation in the legal gender identity recognition process, employment consultations, and psychosocial support at its Solidarity Centers in Athens and Thessaloniki. In addition, assists with support and care programs for refugees and migrants, members of the LGBTQI+ community, who face double stigma due to both gender identity and refugee status.

The presence of SolidarityNow supports and reinforces the message of unity and solidarity, joining voices in the struggle for social justice and equality.
