Turkey’s Ankara bans gay-related events

Deutsche Welle: Turkey’s capital clamped down further on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) life on Sunday in a move likely to deepen concern among rights advocates. All LGBTI events, including cinema, theater, discussion panels and interviews, were forbidden until further notice, Ankara’s gubernatorial office said, to avert “public hatred and hostility” likely to emerge “within certain segments” of society.
