President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on April 22 targeted the opposition over the LGBTI+ community and stated “the Republican People’s Party (CHP), the Worker’s Party of Turkey (TİP) and the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) are LGBT supporters. They are against our sacred family structure.” Speaking in Gaziantep province, Erdoğan said that this is why the elections are important and added that “May 14 will be the day to teach a lesson to those who support LGBT and violence against women,” according to daily BirGün. Previously, Erdoğan targeted the LGBTI+ community in Turkey in various hate speeches in which he deemed LGBTI+ individuals as “perverts,” “deviants,” “viruses,” and so on.
