Within “Cooperation for a common future” we have organized the first podcast episode “Cooperation under a common rainbow”. The guests in the first episode were Antonio Mihajlov, Subversive Front & Apostolis Karampairis, organizer of Thessaloniki Pride and it was “comradery” moderated by Alexandros Pavlou & Anelija Mitrova. The speakers had the opportunity to discus about the current situation and challenges that LGBTQ+ community face in both countries. The legal framework, the stereotypes and discrimination still remain one of the biggest problems. We concluded that we are not only sharing the same sky but also the challenges and the difficulties that LGBTQ+ rights are facing in Greece and in North Macedonia, 2 countries so different and at the same time so similar. The guests stated that the societies must learn and be educated in protecting not only their personal rights, but the human rights in general, in order to create a sustainable and inclusive society.
