Queer Adana has announced events for IDAHOT, including a Bicycle Tour against Homo-, Trans- and Biphobia and all kinds of sexism for LGBTI and women and the TransX Istanbul Film Premiere Gala in Adana.
Queer Adana will be hosting a Bicycle Tour against Homophobia, Transphobia, Biphobia and all kinds of Sexism in Adana on May 17, starting at noon.
Bring your own bicycle or they will help you rent one. Let’s move further towards the green fields and nature by the river. This is organised event for women and LGBTI’s only.
For more detail, please visit the event page.
After the Bicycle Tour, at 6:00pm there will be the TansX Istanbul Film Premiere Gala in Adana, which will take place at the Seyhan Cultural Centre.
Trans X Istanbul is a personal documentary film and part of the multi-platform project Trans X Turkey about the human rights situation of Transgender people (Trans*) in Turkey.
Thousands of Trans*Women live in the big cities of Turkey. Since 2009 there has been an increase in the murder of Trans*. If crimes against Trans*Women are even investigated by the police and brought to court, the perpetrators can usually rely on being exempted from prosecution. Ebru, a Trans*Woman from Istanbul, fights against the displacement and murder of her companions. She has experienced exclusion from state, society and family in her own life. For 25 years she has been active for human rights and the rights of LGBTIQ. She wants to change Turkish society with humour, self-irony and political acumen. She meets Margarethe, a 85-year-old German retired nurse and mother of the film‐maker, and establishes together with her a retirement home for Trans*. Urban transformation of Istanbul and the protests around the Gezi Park resonate throughout the film.
