Homotopia@Istanbul

I'm currently in preparation for Homtopia's project in Istanbul; details below. I'm also keen to gather more locations of homophobic hate crime for The Pansy Project in association with Outburst in Belfast, So far I have a few but do need more, they can be anonymous if necassary. Also in other news you can see the speech via youtube below, I gave at the NO HATE Vigil in Trafalgar Square a couple of Saturday's ago.
