The Piknik Over The Rainbow was organised by Thessaloniki Rainbow Youth (TRY) for the International ay Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Bi-Phobia. They wanted to do something possitive and to help for creating a safe space outside for LGBTQI Youths.
Around 50 people arrived in the Piknik which was quite a surprise for the organisators from TRY. They ran the initiative from 15:00h to 18:30h.
People were quite happy that they had a chance to participate in something like that in Thessaloniki, since it's not something that it happenes very often for LGBTQI young people.Many of them were quite friendly and wanted to join TRY after that initiative. They played games, threated themselves with food beverages, crashed a couble of pinatas and discussed about the issues of Homophobia, Bi-Phobia and Transphobia. It was very surprising that many young LGBTQI people were not aware of the rising LGBTQI Activism in Greece and were not in familiar with the issues of Bi-Phobia and Transphobia, but TRY hope that the following discussion will help them to understand that issues.
