LGBT+ Pride events can now be held in Ankara, the capital city of Turkey, as a court has lifted a ban that previously prohibited such celebrations. The news was announced on Thursday 19 April, explaining that it was Turkish LGBT+ rights group Kaos GL that managed to get it appealed. The organisation had previously attempted to do the same in November of last year but proved unsuccessful. “We can say that the court has accepted our arguments that we have advocated since the day when the ban has declared,” Kaos GL’s lawyer Hayriye Kara voiced in a statement.
