Kursad Kahramanoglu, Co - Secretary General
One of the best-known Turkish Human Rights activist in the world, elected for the first time as the secretary general of ILGA at the end of 1999 at ILGA’s Conference in South Africa, Kursad lives in London.
Studied Industrial Engineering in Turkey and Philosophy in UK, Kursad wrote, lectured and campaigned for equal opportunities more than two decades. He led and actively participated in many local and national campaigns in UK against racism and homophobia.
His involvement with trade unions and work as professional trade unionist makes him a rather unusual lgbt activist. He firmly believes full lgbt equality everywhere is just a matter of time.
