Chrysoula Iliopoulou has just completed a BA in psychology at Panteion University of Athens. She comes from Amaliada, a town in the south Peloponnese and is currently living in Athens. As an Erasmus student, she spent a semester in Rome, studying political sciences. Chrysoula has been playing the violin since the age of seven and this year is getting her violin degree. During the last couple of years she has had an active interest in issues regarding sexual health, sexual education, sexual rights as well as LGBTQI+ rights. Thus, she has been volunteering for Amnesty International (“My body, my rights” Campaign) as well as for Positive Voice, the Greek association for defending the rights of people with HIV/AIDS. She has attended many seminars, congresses and trainings on issues relating to sexuality and gender issues and sexual rights. Last year Chrysoula developed an interest in the subject of the psychosocial identity of homosexuals in Greece; this was the research subject of her BA thesis. She is currently working as a volunteer for the NGO “Colour Youth: The LGBTQ youth Community of Athens” as the coordinator of the support group. She has been accepted for a Master’s program on Sexual Education at Widener University, Pennsylvania, United States.
