Today should have been #Istanbul #Pride. If Covid hadn’t stopped it, #Turkey’s government would have banned it for 5th year. Last year, my husband & I joined Istanbullus trying to celebrate love (before being tear-gassed). So today from Rome, @PedroZegrePenim& I say: #AşkAşktır! pic.twitter.com/EdtboWgmz9Advertisement
