With the aim of claiming human rights as part of everyday life and in fact in a special situation in the midst of a pandemic but also a climate of prejudice, discrimination and fear, Athens Pride returns this year and tomorrow, Saturday, September 11 at 7 pm, the Pride Parade will take place adapted to the conditions of the pandemic.

Having as motto "What unites us", as stated by its accessibility manager Athens Pride, Thalia Kiousi, speaking at Athens 9.84 and Eleftheria Koumantou and Eleonora Orfanidou, participants look for the elements that unite, empower and bring people together.

This year's Athens Pride will be different. There will be no concert, nor will there be kiosks with the participation of organizations and organizations of the LOATKI + movement, in the context of compliance with the measures against coronavirus in order to avoid crowding and overcrowding.

"This year's celebration comes in a difficult situation. Last year we could not say it up close, we had organized a Digital Athens Pride. This year, we present an Athens Pride Week, very specific, with restrictions, masks and distances. It was very difficult for us to make the decision not to organize an Athens Pride as we would have liked. As the Organizing Committee, our primary goal was to be together again. We have missed out on claiming and we wanted to somehow be able to reach that this year. We want as a community to come together again. "Fortunately, people have shown that they know what they need to do to be safe and how to get out of the way while protecting themselves and those around them." he stressed.

The colorful procession will take place normally, but this time starting from Klafthmonos Square and will be completed in Parliament.

"For us, Klafthmonos Square is the point where we started to claim and we want to go back to basics because we see our rights being violated every day."

Ms. Kiousi stressed the need for rallies and alliances against the common pursuit of anti-discrimination, the common ground from which they will draw strength to assert their self-evident rights.

"We want to activate the community because this is our family. We face the same discrimination every day and together we must find the courage to be able to go out proudly and claim. But beyond the LOATKI community, any alliance is important to us.

Human rights are not claimed either individually or from above, they are claimed from below and horizontally. We have other communities by our side because as LOATKI, we claim not only for ourselves but for all people and minorities who experience discrimination.

After all, it is no coincidence that in the past, when conditions allowed, we had over 120.000 people on the street claiming and certainly not all of them were members of the LOATKI community. "Therefore, the concept of alliance is very important to us." he said.
