March against Homophobia and Transphobia

Walk Against Homophobia and Transphobia in 2012, Kurtulus Park, Ankara.

The Walk Against Homophobia and Transphobia (Turkish: Homofobi ve Transfobi Karşıtı Yürüyüş) is a LGBT pride parade and LGBT demonstration held annually in Turkey's capital, Ankara. The event first took place in 2003 and now occurs each year on either the last Sunday of June or the first Sunday of July, to mark the end of Ankara pride week.

Participants assemble in Cebeci[1] before marching the entire length of Kızılay. This is a wide pedestrianized boulevard and one of Ankara's most important public spaces, the frequent home of bayram and regional festivals.
