Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans asylum-seekers and refugees who are settled to Isparta temporarily came together against homophobia and transphobia.  

 

 

Within the scope of the 7th International Meeting against Homophobia LGBT Asylum-seekers and Refugees met in Isparta in 3rd of May against homophobia and transphobia.  Hayriye Kara, Esra Aynacı, Özge Arslan and Tito Galvez from KaosGL participated in the meeting.
In the meeting actualized thanks to the cooperation of Kaos GL, IRQO and Heartland Alliance, discrimination and violence LGBT asylum-seekers and refugees are exposed to and their access to the right of health were discussed.   
 
LGBT asylum-seekers and refugees claimed that they could not walk freely in Isparta, that they constantly took permission from the Office of Foreigners and remained outside of Isparta. Besides even if they could go to hospital they expressed that they had to buy the medicines from their pocket for treatment. After the meeting a lunch was organized for the participants.
