March against homophobia to be staged in Ankara

UKGayNews reports that to mark International Day Against Homophobia LGBT groups in Turkey plan to hold a "March Against Homophobia” in the capital Ankara on 17 May, for the first time.

“We are marching against homophobia and transphobia this year for the first time,” the organisers said in a statement.

PinkNews details that "the march will start at the Human Rights Monument in the Turkish capital and end at the National Assembly."

Authors, journalists and human rights activists will be marching under the rainbow flag. Michael Cashman (UK) - one of only two out gay MEPs in the 785-member European Parliament - will join the march.
