Intersectional report from Athens


Queer and LGBT communities are experiencing an alarming rise in the number of violent hate crime (The Independent for example is reporting that the number of attacks on the community in the United Kingdom has increased by nearly 80 per cent in the past four years).
In August, we joined the protest against violence against Queer and LGBT community near to the park in Athens, Greece, where the LGBT couple was attacked.

We met Alexandra Tsiorou, a trans woman and an activist, who explained us the background of this action, or better self-organized pride. She herself is fighting against ableism, trans and homophobic violence on a daily level.
