Our crowdfunding campaign is live!
Queer Athens is a non-lucrative project run by volunteers. Your contributions keep us running by offsetting the costs of the hardware, software and labor required for recording, editing, translating, engineering, producing and hosting. Every bit helps; we can’t do this without our community’s support.
Queer Athens is a bilingual oral history archive that shares the stories and experiences of Greek LGBTQ+ people from the 1960s to the present in their own words.
Our mission is twofold: to share the rich tradition of queer activism in Greece with a wider audience, domestically and abroad, and to bear witness to the profound changes in what it has meant to be queer in Greece from the mid-20th century to the present.
Our episodes will feature groundbreaking activists, visual artists, musicians, writers, community builders, and everyday people. We seek to democratize history-making by centering the lived experiences of all queer Athenians because we all have something to share about what it means to be queer and Greek.
Queer Athens isn’t just a podcast; it’s a grassroots oral history project. Our episodes share and circulate stories of political activism and queer livelihoods within the Greek LGBTQ+ community and they serve as a starting place for potential allies who looking to educate themselves about LGBTQ+ issues for the first time.
