Hundreds of thousands of people celebrated the LGBT communitys 22nd Pride Parade in Istanbul yesterday.
More than 100, 000 people gathered in Istiklal Avenue in Istanbul to celebrate the 22th Pride Parade for the LGBT community on the 29 June, under some strict security measures by the police who blocked the roads to Taksim Square and Gezi Park with water cannons since early morning.
Community members, as well their families and loved ones participated in the parade, chanting for the freedom for same-sex marriage and against homophobia. They carried banners that said, Unconditional Love is Possible.
The United Kingdom Consulate displayed the LGBT flag on its building near Istiklal Avenue. The US consul, Charles Hunter, also expressed his support for the community: I am also gay and here I am in the pride parade of the LGBT people.

I honestly assumed this was some kind of satire.
Turkey is like Albania. Only the government has actual Muslims in it.
“I guess moderate Muslims do exist.”
Moderates are everywhere and infect all cultures by aligning themselves with leftists.
According to wiki its 99.8% Muslim, you mean most are secularized?
Amazing that is in a Muslim country!
But get this ... The most gay-friendly city in the world (rated by the gays) is Tel Aviv, Israel!
>> Unconditional Love is Possible.
Didn’t know that sodomy was a prerequisite for love...
Thanks for not posting any pics...
It is amazing, but I’ve been hoping television would undermine the Muslims like it has the US, and maybe this is an indication of that.
The 22nd annual Istanbuldyke Day?
The whole world is having a love affair with “openly gay” sexual deviants. Doesn’t say much for the human race, does it?
Yes. That is what Turkey has tried to be for many years - secularized. But at some future time this will collapse, and Turkey will collapse with it.
Pretty sure if they tried this anywhere in Turkey except Istanbul—Anatolia especially—it would be over very quickly.
“Pride”? Complete absence of shame is more like it.
Filthy homosexuality is nothing to be proud of.
Tens of thousands in this story - http://www.dw.de/tens-of-thousands-take-to-the-streets-in-istanbuls-gay-pride-parade/a-17745525
Will anyone in any media outlet anywhere in the world ever have a brain-flash and question exactly what these pervs are proud of?
There’s nothing new about Middle Eastern homosexuality. The article at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homosexuality_in_ancient_Greece tells about it.
We are on a sure path to self destruction will Christ come for the righteous or will humanity end with a whimper? We will find out.
Hmmm....wondering what I.S. thinks of this?
