20th Istanbul LGBTI+ Pride Parade Press Release

Together we have force. We get our power from our resistance, and we continue to resist. As LGBTI+s who celebrate their dignity and existence on the streets every year in the last week of June, we are here with persistence in our struggle, hope for tomorrow, and the courage and solidarity we receive from each other. We were, we are, we will be!

The girl who mistook herself for a proverbial hat rack

I had to do the work of combining my own experiences and feelings to those very moral positions before I could progress. Let’s call it my version of “dealing with trauma” through 2021. I believe I am hardly the only person to have been through the same process, and I hope this text, apart from clarifying for some of my friends where I have been for 2 years, can inspire strangers, too, to do the work of understanding why we have this type of social violence in our communities

Detransition: Stop this buzzword

When I think about the trans and queer communities as a whole and some of the values I hope these communities hold close - I get discouraged when conversations about detransitioning come up as negative. If we all already acknowledge the fact that gender is fluid, and the fact that the binary is bullshit, why are we pissing on folks who acknowledge that fluidity and change within themselves?

Transpolitisk Forum Press Release: Hold your horses

At the same time the state of Denmark monopolized access to hormones and surgeries and turned up the pathologization one more level.
