Kiss-In Documentary: Is Public Intimacy An Equal Right For All?

Are Greek people still shocked by a homosexual (lesbian) couple's public acts of affection and intimacy? Is public trust and tolerance, demonstrated to the private moments coming from a straight couple, equally shared to lesbian couples, as well? This mini documentary uses a social experiment technique to answer the questions above. GreekTV has committed itself to present, equally, subjects that concern the whole spectrum of Greek society and to promote diversity.

GreekTV commissioned the first original video for the launch of its LGBT section to be a mini documentary from members of a collective of lesbian and bisexual women. The documentary provides an inside look at issues that concern bisexual and lesbian women in Greece.

The members of the collective asked a lesbian couple to be openly intimate in downtown Athens, especially the Athens central food market (Varvakios Agora) and Monastiraki square, in order to investigate how the people around them would react and what would the impact be for the two women. Before that, they shared thoughts, stories and worries about their life and their rights in contemporary Greece with the crew and the director and host Rebecca Varnali. The result is a fresh, spontaneous, and honest look into the lives of greek lesbian and bisexual women.
