Thank you for joining us at A Celebration of Courage 2013 where we honored Dr. Binnaz Toprak, Yasemin Öz, and Dorothy Sander for their significant, lasting, and heroic contributions to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender movement worldwide.
This year's Celebration was covered by several Turkish news outlets including Hürriyet and the Star Gazete which we've translated in to English. The Huffington Post also ran an exclusive Q&A with Cynthia Nixon.
