ISTANBUL | GAY PRIDE PARADE 2008/7

This year's LGBT Pride Week of Turkey took place between June 23rd and June 29th, 2008. (Last yeat 01 July 2007) Many participants including activists, artists, politicians and journalists from Turkey and abroad joined the activities, such as film screenings, forums, parties, concerts, workshops and an LGBT Pride March. Following the march will be an award ceremony. In order to denounce homophobia we have been giving the Genetically Modified Tomato Awards since 2005 to individuals/institutions that have made homophobic statements throughout the previous year.

I think you confuse this parade one of the classic gay parades as took place in Zagreb. But no it was kind of searching equalization with straights in Turkey.

Not a festival, concert or sth else...

Yes, she's great person!
But I think also in Istanbul's parade there were some activities including many artist of couse but I don't think it's much as as Stockholm's.

In the future we hope...

I guess, gays have a week in Turkey. I read Timeout Istanbul very often, they write about many concerts, parties, movies, theatres... special to gays in that week. It isnt just one day parade, is it???

Btw true that Taksim is one of the most liberal and tolerable districts in the world.

Yes you're right. There are many cultural activities except that day.
For example in 2007 there were
- boat party
- movies (i think in French Culture Center)
- Forums
- Theatre show
- Concert (Aylin Aslım)
- Genetically Modified Tomato Awards (like it very much)

and more..

In Taxim, you remember your reason of being human

Lovely pictures of a fun day! As there are no credits for these photos, I am assuming you took them yourself. I will move the thread to Urban Showcase for self taken photographs. If they are not, then firstly edit in proper credits, THEN pm me and I will move it back.
Anyone tempted to make homophobic or insulting political statements had better just internalize it and move on to another thread, as I will issue infractions to anyone who does.

Great pictures and a great event but given the size of Istanbul there are probably a lot more gays/lesbians/bisexuals/transsexuals that should have participated.

It's fine with me as long as they don't walk like that on streets or like Zohar in Tel Aviv

Sad, but there is little one can do about it, this is what happens when you turn away from Islam. To each his own.
