Published on : Tuesday, June 27, 2017

LGBT tourism in IstanbulIstanbul is still seen as a liberal welcoming place for everyone, and a favorite in the world among LGBT travelers. There is a large gay, lesbian, transgender community in Istanbul and the rest of Turkey. There are LGBT tourists and supporters in the world supporting their kind anywhere.

 
Taksin Square in Istanbul is the symbolic center and tourism melting point in Turkey.

 

Yesterday in Taksin Square the witch-hunt against the Turkish LGBT community under Turkish Dictator Erdogan continued. Organizers of the 2017 Istanbul LGBTI+ Pride had vowed to march in central Taksim Square, using a Turkish hashtag for “we march,” despite the ban on gay pride observances ordered by the Istanbul governor’s office for the third year in a row.

 
At least a hundred protesters gathered in a nearby neighborhood, beating drums and chanting slogans such as, “Don’t be quiet, shout out, gays exist!” and “Love, love, freedom, State, stay away!” They carried a banner that read, “Get used to, we are here.”
