2023 Thessaloniki Pride – The events

Thessaloniki Pride

During the week of June 19-24, the 2023 Thessaloniki Pride took place in the city. Seven days of events that culminated with the usual great Pride march, on saturday 24th.

The pride is an event that promotes awareness of the whole LGBTIQ+ community issues, on a national and international level. Through shows, workshops, movie screenings and a lot more, every year, thousands of people unite their voices to promote the values of autonomy and self-determination of the body, in an environment of respect, love and inclusion (thessalonikipride.com).

The motto of the 11th edition of this Pride is: “I BELONG TO ME”. As absurd as it is to still have to do so, a slogan that emphasize once again that each of us must be free to manage our own bodies and lives.
