  • Status is not correct " De facto discriminiation exists and the Hate Speech law doesnt contain LGBT individuals. "
  • Status is not correct "Right now in Turkey, the state organizes lgbt hate parades under the name of protecting our families and they share public announcements on tv that says "say not to lgbt propaganda they are turning our kids lgbt say stop to these perverts. The state & government does many hate propaganda against indiviuals so i cant say that there is discrimination law when the state itself does the hate propaganda "
