Middle East Technical University (METU) Gender Studies Club organized a panel with the participation of Rainbow Family Group who are parents having LGBTI+ children.

During the panel session, parents told about their experiences after coming-out processes of their LGBTI+ children.

Normally, the event was planned to be organized officially in the campus. However, METU Rectorate has banned the event due to the relation of LGBT- rainbow. In spite of the ban, METU LGBTI+Solidarity could successfully organize the event.
