The organization committee of the İstanbul LGBTİ+ Pride Week has announced that the theme of the İstanbul Pride will be “resistance” this year.
2022 marks the 30th year of İstanbul LGBTI+ Pride Week. Every year, İstanbul LGBTI+ Pride Week has been celebrated with various events such as workshops, movie screenings, presentations, and panel discussions in the last week of June.
The Pride Week is ending with a march on the last Sunday of June, which has been denied permission by the Governorship of Istanbul authorities since 2015.
Several protesters have been detained with violence for joining the march.
