THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — A trans woman was found stabbed to death in her house in the providence of Kusadasi in Turkey. The body of Dora Oezer was discovered by her roommate. ‘The police have begun an investigation into the murder and an autopsy is scheduled.
Transgender Europe’s Richard Köhler: ‘Unfortunately, Dora is not a rare case, there is a systematic murdering of trans people in Turkey, some even call it a trans massacre.’
Kaos GL and Pink Life LGBTT released a statement condemning the Turkish government who they believe is reluctant to take on transphobic violence. They also said protests condemning transphobia and hate crimes will be held in İstanbul, İzmir and Eskişehir on Friday at 6 pm.

I’m a bit disappointed in the way the Gay Star News choose to cover this story [Trigger Warning]: Trans woman, 24, stabbed to death in Turkey | Gay Star News.
