There are lesbian, gay, and trans student groups allowed in TURKEY, they are univercity clubs and some other civil clubs. Heterosexuals in TURKEY believe ( not all of them but most of them ) being gay is a problem, kind of sin and not a thing that thay can acept. Being lesbian doesn't caunt as a homosexuality. People usually ( especcially homophobics) believe that LGBT is a choice and a way to have attantion or the way which you can make people away with it..
