The Trans Istanbul Initiative calls on the trans people who stay at home due to the COVID-19 outbreak to the T-Talk Whatsapp Group, where they will provide peer support.
The Trans Istanbul Initiative, established by trans activists who came together to remove the barriers to fundamental rights and freedoms in the Trans Therapy Group, calls on the T-Talk Whatsapp Group.
The initiative shared this call on their social media accounts: “Would you like to be added to our T-Talk Whatsapp Group, where you can stay at home and share peer support, knowledge and experience during the COVID-19 outbreak days?
“In Turkey, no matter where you are, with our interactive peer group you can find the opportunity to talk about the transition process and many other subjects as well as expanding knowledge and have fun.”
How to join?
The T-Talk WhatsApp Group consists of trans members only and is only open to people with a trans declaration. "If your social circle is not enough to get trans peer support and you are having difficulties in associating with LGBTI + formations, this interactive group may be useful for you," initiative says.
If you want to join the group, simply send your name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject title “I want to join the WhatsApp group”.
