Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

All LGBT events in Ankara are banned

Today, 14:02

In Ankara, all LGBT events have been banned indefinitely. The governor of the city says that many residents of the Turkish capital are disturbed by expressions of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people.

How many residents exactly, Mr Governor? I suspect mainly just one resident: right-wing President Erdogan, who had his expensive presidential palace built in Ankara illegally.

The ban also includes theater performances, film screenings, exhibitions and panel discussions. On Wednesday, a gay film festival in Ankara had already been banned …

Homosexuality is not punishable in Turkey … However, homosexuals are often faced with hostility and discrimination.
