I live in Athens-Greece.To be gay/bisexual in Athens and generally in big cities and famous islands in Greece is not unusual,but in the Greek countryside is somekind unusual..At my work everyone knows about my sexual orientation and i have never been a discrimination victim.Co-workers accept it normally.Also,my friends who are straight guys and girls dont have any problem.The same thing in my university.Young Greeks accept it normally in the most of cases.Also,in the public areas when i talk about my boyfriend with a friend on my phone,noone cares about it.I think that this situation is completely different in the Greek countryside.Church causes troubles(church is accepted only by old people and very conservative people)in lgbt community but government tries to recognise same sex couples with a law which is gonna be voted in the next months.
