Istanbul Trans Woman Dies Of Injuries Sustained During Police Retaliatory Attack

 This is what gendercide looks like.

The transgender community in Turkey is under attack by it’s own goverment. In a apparent retribution for our communities increased visibility a transgender woman beaten during March 7th raids by the police has died.

I can’t believe if the 5000 friends I have on facebook only four have ‘liked’ LGBT Istanbul! This is our family being slaughtered! Please if you care like LGBT Istanbul. Then really care by sharing, bring this human tragedy, this blatant gendercide to the worlds spotlight.

This battle must be joined by the entire transgender community and allies if our dear family is to have any chance at survival.
