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..

I can't tell anyone that i'm homosexual,because in Turkey,heterosexual people reject homosexual people.they think that being homosexual is illness! nevertheless there are institutions which work to protect lgbt rights and which try to change people mind..
