Turkey hosted a two-day meeting on the issue of homophobia this week, with representatives from several nations addressing the problem of anti-gay attitudes in society and in law, both in Turkey and elsewhere around the globe.
One point of discussion was the lack, on the part of the U.N., of a universal charter that would comprehensively lay out the rights of gays and lesbians internationally. Zehra Kabasakal spoke to this topic, saying, "We must recognize the diversity in order to achieve equality for human dignity and we must ensure genuine equality."
