LGBT+ Rights in Greece

As one of the most popular LGBT+ tourist destinations on the planet, Greece surprisingly does not recognize marriage equality. Instead, since 2015, the country recognizes civil unions between same-sex couples. Thankfully, Greek public opinion on homosexuality continues to evolve favorably.

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 LGBT people can serve openly in the military. More work however needs to be made on the adoption front, as currently, only single LGBT individuals can adopt.

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.
