The second indefinite ban on LGBTI+ activity was lifted in Ankara, which was declared by the document submitted to the Police by the Governor’s Office in 2018. The governor’s office was unable to provide the court with any concrete documents relating to the justification for the ban. 2nd Administrative Court of Ankara ruled in the case of the Kaos GL Association on the “second indefinite ban on LGBTI+ activity” in the capital of Turkey. The court ruled that the second ban on LGBTI+ activities in Ankara, which was declared by the letter conveyed to the Police Department by the Governor’s Office of Ankara on October 3, 2018, was against the law and canceled the ban. 2nd Administrative Court of Ankara stated that the ban declared during the state of emergency and known as the first ban on LGBTI+ activities was lifted by the District Administrative Court in April 2019, and a ban that was found against the law even during the period of emergency could not be executed in accordance with the law after the end of the emergency period.
