Largest muslim gay pride march in Istanbul

Gay Star News, Jul 1

Tens of thousands of gay Turks marched down Istanbul’s Istiklal Avenue on Sunday for this year’s Istanbul Pride festival march - making it the biggest gay pride parade in the Muslim world. Turkey has long been one of the world's most westernised muslim countries - but gay rights still have a long way to go in the country. Which is why Sunday's march is all the more encouraging.
