Equality Wins in Greece

Greece legalises same-sex marriage

On December 23, 2015, the Greek parliament passed a law legalising same-sex marriage, making Greece one of the few countries in Europe to do so. The law was met with celebration and approval from the LGBTQ+ community as well as human rights activists.

Before the passing of this law, civil partnerships were the only legal recognition of same-sex relationships in Greece. This new legislation grants same-sex couples the same rights and benefits as heterosexual couples, including adoption and inheritance rights.

The decision to legalise same-sex marriage in Greece marks a significant step forward in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights in the country. It is a testament to the progress that has been made in recent years towards equality and acceptance for all individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation.
