Yesterday people shared what Erdoğan’s promised to LGBTI community more than a decade ago. Now the climate changed. In the last couple of years, Turkey’s political leadership and its civil apparatus went off an all-out hate campaign against LGBTI citizens. Just 4-5 years ago, Istanbul Pride March was a significant, colorful, crowded event. Now it is not allowed. Police attack the citizens if they intend to march.
Trolls organize to limit LGBTI citizens’ social media accounts. Unfortunately, social media platforms are again manipulated. Onur Aydın’s account was limited after his post became viral:
One of the major LGBTI organization’s Youtube Live show canceled with the pretext of violating community rules.
