LGBT flag flies at PM Erdoğan’s rally
ISTANBULAn LGBT group that was founded under the name of “AKP LBGT members” attended Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's rally in Istanbul on Aug. 3, waving a flag at the front of the crowd.
The group shared photos from the rally on their Facebook and Twitter accounts, saying, “Gays stand with Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.”
“Get used to it, we are everywhere,” the group said.
“I waved the rainbow flag on the frontline. Probably the president saw it,” one of the members wrote.
The group previously talked to daily Milliyet before the rally, saying their goal was to change conservatives’ prejudices and negative views toward LGBTs.
