Amnesty Warns That Turkish LGBTI+ People are ‘living in more fear than ever’

04/26/2018 | Pink News

“Most LGBT+ people in Turkey today are living in more fear than ever before,” an activist tells me when we meet in a café in Istanbul on a cloudy day in February. She is too afraid for me to share her name. “With the crackdown on freedom of expression, spaces for LGBT+ people to be themselves are shrinking. They see no hope, no future. Many of us have either moved to other countries or are thinking of leaving.”
