İzmir, Ankara, and Samsun followed by Diyarbakır
In November 2018, the first LGBTI+ Rights Commission was established within the İzmir Bar Association to conduct research and study with a professional, theoretical and practical interdisciplinary approach to make LGBTI+ rights claims visible. In December, the Ankara Bar Association LGBTIQ+ Rights Centre, which aims to both work against LGBTI+s violations and strengthen solidarity among lawyers, was founded. In April 2016, the Samsun Bar Association decided to establish the "Commission for the Protection of the Rights of Sexually Discriminated Individuals" at its regular general assembly to provide free legal advice and lawyer support to women, children and LGBTI+'s who are victims of violence.
