Denounce Turkey for Imprisoning and Persecuting LGBTQ Community

Target: Rex Tillerson, Secretary of State

Goal: Condemn the government of Turkey for discriminating against and threatening the LGBTQ community.

The government of Turkey is abusing and discriminating against the nation’s LGBTQ community, but the Trump administration and the Department of State have yet to condemn the country’s harmful actions under President Erdogan. Businesses have been shut down, events have been cancelled, and the LGBTQ community is left to wonder what will come next.

The government of Turkey has been cracking down on the rights of the LGBTQ community for years. Police have targeted LGBTQ Pride marchers with water cannons. Others have been arrested and detained without cause. The community is denied basic rights, such as the freedoms of speech, expression, and assembly.

Turkey’s actions go against everything America stands for. Sign the petition to demand that the Trump administration and the Department of State condemn the abuse the government of Turkey has targeted toward the LGBTQ community.


Dear Secretary Tillerson,

The government of Turkey has discriminated against and abused the nation’s LGBTQ community for far too long. Members of the community  have been banned from assembly, banned from expressing themselves, and simply banned from fighting for their rights. They’ve been met with violence for even trying.

Members of Congress have demanded that you and others in the Trump administration condemn the actions of the Turkish government. This violent treatment goes against the American beliefs of equality and inalienable rights. I demand that you speak out against the Turkish government and ask President Erdogan and his staff to end this abuse of the LGBTQ community.

    This is typical of all Muslim controlled countries. The Muslims throw gays off of buildings or hang them in public. Others are incarcerated or stoned. Erdogan is taking Turkey back to the illiterate and appalling conditions of 1400 years ago and those Muslims who are gay or Westernised are suffering.
