Bears, admirers, cubs and chasers, can we have your attention please? You know how you wished you could get to know all the chunky and fuzzy Athenians up close? Well, this summer you will. The first ever Athens bear week, aplty titled Bearly Athens, is on for the last week of August. Log off Growlr and Grindr for a sec and come meet the city's extra cuddly LGBTQ+ crowd. The programme is lush, deliciously queer and includes rooftop parties, pool parties, cruise parties, basement parties (we sense a pattern here), an art exhibition, a bingo session, brunches (bears gotta eat), sightseeing and more. Events will take place in various locations, from downtown hotels to the Athens Riviera. Follow the links below for more info on the programme and tickets and start practicing on your Greek woofs.
