Red Card to Borders: Solidarity Matches for LGBT Refugees Kaos GL - News Portal for LGBTI+
Kaos GL is organizing football matches with LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans) asylum seekers and refugees to show red card to homophobia, transphobia, racism and borders.
 
Fired Referee Dinçdağ will Conduct the Matches
Supported by FARE (Football Against Racism in Europe), the solidarity matches will be held in two different satellite cities where LGBT refugees have to live during their stay in Turkey and also in Ankara. Referee Halil İbrahim Dinçdağ who lost his job because of his sexuality will be present in all three matches to give the message “red card to homophobia, transphobia and borders” both in Turkish and in Farsi.
 
The matches will be held in Kayseri on November 5th and in Denizli on November 7th. On November 13th, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), non-governmental organizations working on refugee rights, activists and scholars will compete in the last match to be held in Ankara.
