Paros Island: the place where homosexuality was once celebrated!
The sun kissed Greek island of Paros is known for its acceptance of the gay community since ancient times, when regiments of Amazons marched bare breasted. Homosexuality was accepted and honored, and male lovers would often fight to avenge their man. This gay-friendly attitude, whatsoever, never ceased to exist. The locals have always been open-minded on their sexuality, while Parians seem to be kind fond of gay people.
That said, Paros gay life has still a long way to go, as it's quite underdeveloped, featuring no exclusively gay venues around the island (not even in the capital). Of course, most of the places on the island are gay-friendly. Some popular ones which attract mixed crowds are Fotis and Tonic in Naoussa. Last but not least, they are many gay people living in Paros, so there is a compact gay community on the island. Of course, summer finds Paros packed with gay visitors, and Greeks visiting from the capital and the rest of Greece.
So, let's discover the most popular gay beach on Paros Island, Laggeri Beach, alongside other gay-popular beaches which work as gay alternatives.

Absolutely, yes! Laggeri Beach is a quiet beach located near Naoussa, one of the biggest towns in Paros. It's one of the most gay-popular beaches on the island, and the only one that is shown on the results when you search Gay Beach Paros. According to capnbarefoot's 2019 report, the beach is still 100% nude, attracting mixed crowds of gay and straight couples. The peak days are Saturday and Sunday, while most gay men are spotted on the southern part of the beach (nudist section).
Of course, Laggeri is not the only gay popular beach on the island. There are plenty of clothing-optional beaches on Paros, which are frequented by gay travellers. Some notable examples are Perikopetra Beach near Monastiri Beach, Mesadha and Kolimbithres Beaches. In addition to those beaches, there are also plenty of coves and small beaches around the island where you can relax and enjoy the sun "wearing" your best dress!
