Wish to Smash the Lavender Ceilings one by one…

Kaos GL Media and Communications Program Coordinator Yıldız Tar, presents the book as;

“This booklet you are reading now was published within this atmosphere to remind and bring to the agenda the rights of LGBTI+ persons regarding labor life. In this booklet, which is a product of Yunus Emre Demir’s meticulous work, we directly hear from LGBTI+ persons what they have experienced both during the pandemic process and in the labor life before that. Before providing the detailed testimonies provided in the booklet, we care about digressing for a moment to discuss the importance of the unions. The guide of Kaos GL, which we have provided at the end of the booklet, can also guide the unionists.”
