Thinking of our friends in Turkey

Whilst we were all basking in the joy of London Pride, and celebrating the fact that the United States Supreme Court had just legalised same –sex marriage we were shocked and saddened by events at Pride in Istanbul on June 28th.  Istanbul’s Pride parade was brutally dispersed with water cannon, tear gas and rubber bullets. We know many brave parents with LGBT sons and daughters there and are in constant contact with many of them.

We have happy memories of welcoming members of the parent support group Listag to London for World Pride in 2012 and of attending Istanbul Pride in 2013. We send the parents and all their sons and daughters our love and best wishes for happier days.

Proud Parents of Listag
