ÜniKuir Pride Marches on Campuses Report 2022

About this Report

Given the lack of a comprehensive monitoring study on Pride Marches that have been taking place on university campuses for over a decade, coupled with the increasing violations we’ve experienced in recent years, Turkish IGLYO Member ÜniKuir Association has prioritised studies and advocacy efforts aimed at increasing awareness of these violations.

The purpose of this report is to monitor the prevention of campus Pride Marches held at METU and Boğaziçi in 2022, as well as the detention of numerous young LGBTI+ supporters during the march and the subsequent disciplinary investigations. Additionally, the report aims to assess any violations of rights and access to justice in lawsuits pertaining to these events, from a rights-based perspective.

This report tracks the university administration’s attitude towards the Pride Marches held on campuses in 2022, as well as the banning decisions and any instances of violence or rights violations that occurred in this context. "We remind once again that Pride Marches and LGBTI+ existence cannot be banned or criminalised! LGBTI+ rights are human rights!", says UniKuir.
