Athens is definitely the most open minded city of Greece regarding LGBT rights. More and more often, you will see same-sex couples walking in the centre of the city holding hands.

Even though the Greek Orthodox religion has influenced Greek society to a great extent and since its adoption during the Byzantine era, in the last 10-15 years locals have become more open-minded and friendly towards gay people. The locals of Athens tend to be more open-minded to the LGBT community due to the Cosmopolitan nature of the city.
