10th May Press Conference and 17th May Event Calendar

Our Pride Week begins with the slogan and activism of being free together. Through the events that will take place between May 10th and May 20th we are once again raising our voices and proclaiming our existence together.


We want to live with our fundamental human rights and freedoms. We want to read, work, create, love, be loved, and experience all the beauty and, of course, the challenges of life as free individuals. We want individuality to develop along with being free together, and we want to coexist in life together. Our existence is not a threat; it is our diversity! LGBTI+ individuals exist in all areas of life and will continue to exist. Creating an equal and fair life for all members of this society, and protecting the right to life for all of us are the two the primary responsibilities of the authorities!

We are raising our voices once again against all discourse and practices that ignore us, portray us as abnormal, and subject us to hate speech: We are free together, and LGBTI+ individuals exist in all areas of life and will continue to exist. We invite you to become stakeholders in our unity and diversity through our events.

On May 17th, we will gather at 18:00 in front of Suitex and walk together.
