Joint Statement: Grave concern over recent attacks against LGBTI people in Turkey

We write to you to express our grave concern about the lack of a political response from you over recent attacks, discriminatory treatment and incitement to violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex people in Turkey. In particular, we denounce the ill-treatment Kemal Ördek, co-founder of the Red Umbrella Sexual Health and Human Rights Association (Kırmızı Şemsiye) and previous TGEU co-chair, suffered at the Esat Police Station (ANKARA) on Sunday, July 5, 2015.
