Joint statement from May 17 and Kaos GL associations: We didn’t get used to, we were never tired of however we have never forgotten that our struggle is greater than all these words either.
We once again witnessed an election period full of anti-LGBTI+ propaganda just like all the formers. They spoke of us. They tried to trivialize us and our lives via insults. Nevertheless our lives and our will are valuable, puissant.
13th President targeted us during his speech in İstanbul. We didn’t get used to, we were never tired of however we have never forgotten that our struggle is greater than all these words either.
As May 17 and Kaos GL associations, we will continue to strengthen the LGBTI+ community and to struggle for equality and freedom of LGBTI+s. Having evaluated the results of the elections and our predictions for afterwards, we will determine a road map for the new period, and also we will announce and share it with the whole society, particularly LGBTI+ community.
As lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people, we will overcome these dark days with our struggle began from the moment we were born. We will continue to get strength from each other. We will go on to fight, to be in solidarity and to love. We will protect our loves, our lives and each other. Even though they submitted to close us as an election promise; once we have come out, we will never close again.
Liberation of LGBTI+s, will liberate entire society!
May 17 Association & Kaos GL Association
