Kaos GL, a strong proponent of peace all the time, will focus on the “peace process” on the first day of the meeting.
 
Inviting LGBT society to participate in the peace process, Kaos GL claims that unless the Kurdish feel free and equal regarding being “Kurdish”, no one will really be free.

Pointing at links between homophobia/transphobia and sexism, nationalism, racism and militarism, Kaos GL aims at making connections between various kinds of discrimination. It also aims at forming lateral networks between struggles and practices against discrimination.
 
Scholars, unionists, film directors and politicians from Turkey as well as the USA, Poland, the Netherlands and France will attend the meeting on May 17th and 18th.  
 
The 8th International Anti-Homophobia Meeting will be held in Ankara, at Ça?da? Sanatlar Merkezi (Ç?M – Center of Contemporary Arts).
