Turkey gay dating site
A German-born Turkish pop singer has been accused by dozens of complainants in Turkey of blackmailing them with their secret gay love affairs. The complainants, including public servants, engineers, doctors and the nephew of a former Turkish minister, said they had met Duman on gay dating websites. After they engaged in a relationship with the singer, they said Duman swindled their money through fraud or blackmail by using footage of their sexual encounters.
A policeman from Istanbul who filed a criminal complaint alleged that Duman had taken 80, Turkish Liras from him. A businessman said after he refused his blackmail attempts, Duman had created a fake Facebook account and shared their photos with his colleagues, leading him to resign from his company. Another complainant, who was unidentified, attempted to commit suicide by jumping into the sea in Istanbul but was saved by fishermen. Duman was convicted for fraud and sentenced to jail in one case and was acquitted in another. Several legal cases still proceed. They are the ones who blackmailed me.
I am not a member of any gay dating websites.
The neighbors aren't hospitable. Even if you say "Iyi aksamlar" "Good evening" every time you meet them when climbing the house staircase, they think they can interfere in your private life. The steep spiral staircase in the house is mostly unlighted during nighttime and it has no safety fence on the top floors, so there is a risk to accidentally fall down and break your neck. There is a gape between the window panes opposite the sleeping area in the flat.
And there was no heating during the cold nights of late September, so I got a cold. Besides, there are no thick non-transparent curtains to keep your privacy and everyone from the opposite house can watch everything happening in your flat.

The cooktop is quite weak, and it takes almost half an hour to cook your scrambled eggs. According to the policies of this site I wasn't allowed to describe the horrible incident happened to me in this property, but to make a long story short I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

Let me copy just a quick list of homophobic attacks from United Kingdom in the last few years, for example. The victim was subjected to homophobic abuse at a bus stop on The Strand, before he was then repeatedly punched in the head. Scotland Yard have stated that the offenders were two white men in their twenties wearing dark jackets.
After the attack, they fled towards Trafalgar Square.
The attacks took place in East London. A gay man left for dead in a suspected hate crime was violently attacked as he lay "curled up in a ball" after he went to a pub in his new area to make friends, his family say. Carl suffered a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain in the assault and his family say doctors said he was lucky he wasn't killed. A year-old gay man arrived at Kentish Drovers pub on Peckham High Street in London holding hands with his boyfriend. Authorities sentenced Anjungi Lam, 35, to two years in jail for the 5 March attack. Stephen John Port is a convicted British serial rapist and serial killer.
Port received a life sentence with a whole life order on 25 November I sincerely hope that you do not take it as victim-shaming but I think we all need to be careful with people we meet for random sex, whom we know nothing about.
Turkish pop singer accused of ‘gay blackmail’ by dozens of complainants - Turkey News
Ultimately all big cities hold some risk, especially in night life. Istanbul is actually safer than most other big cities except some typical tourist traps. I recommend people to take a look at the safety warnings on Istanbulgay. Com if they visit Istanbul:. Yes, ultimately all big cities hold risk and all big cities have these hate crimes. The difference is that in some cities, these hate crimes are not taken seriously by the policy, are accepted as ''you deserved it'' attitudes by the government authorities, press, religious institutions, and the general population. In your list of hate crimes in the UK you also name the punishments and prison terms they have received.
Can you list the same for Turkey? Further, It is impossible to accurately compare the stats as in many countries, the crimes go unreported for fear of repercussion. Despite these I acknowledge Turkey is far from the level of Western countries in terms of fighting homophobia and things are getting worse in recent years.
Otherwise I did not intend to claim Turkey is more liberal and democratic than UK. That is a completely different subject and this person is fighting for a more democratic, secular and "westernized" Turkey for decades. In fact, I selected UK deliberately because I also think it is among the most liberal countries in the world right now.
But if the idea is to prove how horrible country Turkey is or how bad Turkish people are that is just another version of hate crime. What I am trying to say is nothing political. It is just a simple fact.
