Gay baptisms in Vouliagmeni with the blessings of Elpidophoros

Such baptisms never happened again! Eh, and how is it possible that they happened, when the sacrament of the baptism of the two neophytes that has acquired (through a surrogate) a gay couple was made by the Most Reverend Archbishop of America Elpidophoros!

All this and much more happened on Saturday afternoon, July 9, in the Church of Panagia Faneromeni, in Vouliagmeni (church donated to the area by Thanasis and Marina Martinou), where the two children of the Greek-American businessman were baptized Evangelou Bousis and his His Scandinavian partner, famous fashion designer Peter Dundas!

In fact, for baptisms the open-minded – as it turns out – Archbishop traveled from New York to Athens! We don’t know if the religious leader wanted to send different messages to the LGBTI community as well, or if his friendship with the grandmother of the two converts (who is known for her philanthropy as the “Mother Teresa of Chicago”) was the motivation to perform the sacrament, regardless of any reactions from religious circles of the country!

It will be interesting to see, for example, how various metropolitans will react to this news, who, through fiery arguments, oppose cohabitation agreements between gay couples, but also against raising children… Arage, Metropolitan Antonios of Glyfada, Hellinikon, Voula, Vouliagmeni and Vari did he know about the presence of Elpidophoros in a church of his metropolis, and indeed about the baptisms of a gay couple?

The mystery, then, of the baptism of the neophytes Alexios and Eleni was held in a closed family circle, in the presence of the entire Bousi family, with godmothers jet-setter jewelry designer Eugenia Niarchou and style priestess Bianca Bartolini, a descendant of Maria Theresa, both heiresses of aristocratic descent are close friends of their parents.

Party at the Four Seasons

After the baptism, and after the Archbishop of America blessed them two children, the fun and dancing took over, once again at the “Four Seasons” hotel of the former “Astera” of Vouliagmeni, a “super production” party was given in honor of the two newbies for the 150 guests of families from all over the world.

There were very few Greeks, like Vicky Kaya (who also uploaded the whole party on social media), Andreas Martinos, Lena Economides-Lamotte, Ilias Tsourekas, Chrysanthos Panas, Apollonas Papatheocharis, while Anna Vissi’s daughter, Sofia Karvelas, traveled from New York especially for the baptism, with Thanasis Panourgias.

The band “Nausikas” of the former “Asteras” was transformed into an incredible setting zoo with flowers, candles, photorhythms, elephants, horses and dogs. The evening began with a sit-down dinner, while the bonbonniere with the initials of the novices appeared on the plates of the guests.

Anna Vissi sang on the stage that had been set up, while in at the end of the party, the show was stolen by Vissi’s son-in-law, Thanasis Panourgias, who, in a fit of glee, took off his shirt and tied it in a “tseberi” on his head, seducing Eugenia Niarchou and Vicky Kaya into a crazy dance, making Vissi shout to him through the microphone “today I am marrying you again”.

Surrogacy in open mind California

It was June 14, 2021, when, in the midst of a pandemic, the international renowned designer Peter Dundas and his partner and partner Evangelos Bousis (scion of the powerful business family of Dimitris Bousi, with a chain of supermarkets around the world and headquartered in Chicago, USA) became parents.

Their firstborn son Alexios was born in California through a surrogate mother, while a few months later their little girl, Eleni, was born. The love between the two men was lightning fast when they met for the first time, eight years ago. at the birthday party of their mutual friend Brian Atwood, a famous shoe designer. Three weeks later they traveled to California together and have been inseparable ever since!

In fact, the well-known designer had revealed the first genitalia on his personal Instagram account, mentioning: “EV and I celebrate father’s day, holding our son Alexios-Peter in our arms. We are now one family and we are very happy about the arrival of our little angel. We are grateful to the wonderful surrogate mother and her family for making this journey with us. Also, our wonderful doctors, the wonderful midwife who delivered him healthy, our supportive friends and California, for letting guys like us become dads so smoothly.”

Also, at that time, on his personal account, Evangelos Bousis, brother of the president of PAE OFI Michalis Bousis, could not hide his joy: “We are over the moon and couldn’t be happier. Today is a special day. We hope to be the best fathers we can for our little boy.”
