My name is Cevat SOGUT, but I am better known to LGBT People in Turkey as Nikopol "Founder of Turk Gay Club"
I was fired from my job at a bank's cultural center being as a gay
and an gay activist at 2009
i hadn't worked for more then 15 months.
it's too difficult to be a gay "lgbt" in a islamic country.
there is some changes but
life is not getting better then yesterday in Turkey.
