Τhis year an LGBTQI + Pride took place in the city of Heraklion on the Greek island of Crete – the first Pride ever to be held in the Greek countryside. We traveled to Heraklion in order to participate and record the three day Festival. We got to know and spent time with the groups who co-organized it and we talked with Ivi, Vassilis, Giorgos, Elissavet and Christina, about the difficulties and challenges of growing up and living as a queer person in the Greek countryside as well as the importance the festival harboured for them.
