LGBTQ+ Rights in Greece

As one of the most popular gay travel destinations on the planet, Greece has made significant progress on LGBT+ rights in recent years. Civil partnerships have been recognized since 2015 and same-sex marriage and full adoption rights since 2024.

While female homosexuality has always been legal in Greece, male homosexuality was not legal until 1951. In addition, anti-LGBT discrimination in employment was banned in 2005.

With respect to other LGBT+ rights, men who have sex with men can donate blood in Greece, transgender individuals can change their legal gender without reassignment surgery, and LGB but not T people can serve openly in the military, so more work is needed.

Overall, Greece is considered one of the most culturally liberal countries in Europe. Given the progress made towards equality for LGBT+ people, combined with beautiful islands, historic cities, and super welcoming locals, Greece holds its own as a LGBT-friendly destination. Check out the posts below as we highlight some of our favorite gay travel destinations in Greece!

Hi! We're Two Gay Expats

Hi gorgeous, and welcome to our LGBTQ+ travel blog! We're Andy and Trai, a gay couple traveling the world with PRIDE 🌈  …and our rescue dog, Pattie!

After meeting in San Francisco in 2018 and later moving to Chicago, we decided to quit our jobs in 2021, sell everything, and become Two Gay Expats. For over two years, we explored the best of gay Mexico while waiting for our house, Casa Cangrejo, to be completed in Tulum. We got married at The Beach Tulum in 2020 and became Mexican permanent residents in 2022.

Today, we continue to travel around Mexico and the world to show you our favorite places. If you'd like to follow our adventures, subscribe on YouTube and join us on Instagram.
