I'm going to clean up this thread.

OK. That was a lot of work, because the system is not working properly, but I have cleaned up the thread, and issued an infraction to Ejdera. I will be MORE than happy to hand out more of these to anyone who starts this fight again.. NO EXCEPTIONS. This photothread is for people to discuss the Gay Pride Parade in Istanbul, not to work out their own personal frustrations and problems.
Thank you.

Because I remember as Ahmedinejad said "There's no gay in Iran" how can it be I don't understand by the way.
If/When the regime finally goes away there will be gay prides in Tehran as far as I know. We already have the highest transexual population in the world (LOL), so the gay population is surely higher and there are already gay rights groups that have been formed, but they are underground b/c of the current climate.

Btw Ahmadenejad is a joke and he obviously knows gay people exist in Iran he just doesn't want to discuss the situation.

Anyways, great thread. It's always nice to see events and such from Turkey.
The people seemed to be having a lot of fun.

if there is pressure, opposition is normal and natural. My personal observation, gayness in Turkey is widely between the poeple that live a more closed, conservative life and when men-women social relationship is under pressure, for example South Easth and Easth of Turkey.

Also on this subject, the point should be what / who is responsible of this preclusion for people to express themselves freely & democratic where they live?
what / who pushes people being more closed and live conservative life ??

I think for transsexualism yes you are right, but for gayness no. Gayness is different, after all homosexuality is completely different.

I meant religious or feodal conservatism. Where woman and normal life with women are forbidden, homosexual relationships increase and become dominant, although those people are not naturally gay.

What you said is completely different!

This is somewhat true and somewhat prevelent in conservative societies. But the situation with gays in all societies is much more complicated than this.

Great thread Sha, thank you for sharing... I'm very proud of people who can be true to the society and more importantly to themselves and be proud of that. And it's always great to see colorful and happy people...

It is very encouraging that a gay pride parade was organized in a country that suppresses free gay expression. I hope that in a few years Istanbul will be as liberal as western European cities.

As far as physical appearance is concerned, Turkish gays and lesbians look very good in the above pictures.
