The aim of this presentation is to examine the different ways that identities are being formed or re-formed in Greece during the economic crisis. In the past 10 years, Greece has been subjected to violent changes that have created a new reality. Native Greeks were forced to reconsider the meaning of their identities, if not their identities altogether. At the same time, immigrants in Greece faced again the dilemma of repatriation. The refugee crisis has also shaped the way we view and relate to the other. In this environment, ethnic identities intersect with gender and sexual orientation, creating new vulnerabilities and dynamics. Based on the paradigm of LGBTI refugees and asylum seekers, we will discuss the meaning and expression of identities, as well as the freedom and the challenges they carry and create.
