The Prime Minister of Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, recently vowed to legalize same-sex marriage during an interview with Bloomberg. “Same-sex marriage will happen at some point and it’s part of our strategy,” he said. “Greek society is much more ready and mature.” Greece currently allows civil unions but has not yet achieved full marriage equality. Nevertheless, this year it ranked number 13 in LGBTQ+-friendliness out of 49 countries in the annual index put out by LGBTQ+ advocacy organization ILGA-Europe. Topping the list were the countries of Malta, Belgium, and Denmark.
