Thousands march in today’s Istanbul Trans Pride

Taksim square belonged to trans Pride Today! Thousands turned out for this celebration, although joyful there was a underpinning of discontent. Turkey is one of the most hostile of countries in the world to trans people but that didn’t stop this from happening. Posted below are some of the Mobil uploads and photos posted on LGBT Istanbul facebook Enjoy!

Marchers were chanting Homofobik devlet, transfobik devlet or Homophobic state, transphobic state!
