The past and present of queer culture in Turkey. Advancement of Women | Gender Studies | Diversity in cooperation with the Queer Museum Vienna and Neuer Wiener Diwan.

Do you know that there has been a continuing queer culture in Turkey since the Ottoman Empire? This project will show the past of this culture, which could be called queer culture today, and how it continues in the Turkish Republic, until today.

In this event, Zülfukar Çetin will talk about queer culture in Turkey and the struggle that accompanies it. He will address questions of how queer culture emerged in Turkey, continuing from the Ottoman Empire until now, and what changes it has undergone since then and what characteristics it possesses today. Project curator: Ece Özdemir
