Let’s make some queer noise! Support us & donate
Velvele has been making the voices of LGBTI+ people living in Turkey and the diaspora heard in Turkish since 2020. Velvele, which continues to grow with its volunteer editor, writer, and translator staff, has now started to make noise in English.
Now it needs your support to be sustainable.
The Turkish government has been attacking LGBTQI+ people in the last 5 years. Activists are detained at Pride events and marches across the country. Anti-LGBTI+ marches are protected and promoted by the government. A ban on LGBTI+ organizations and projects are on the horizon. But we are not going anywhere. We will continue to make noise with your support.
You can become a regular donor of Velvele or give a one-time donation and help others hear the stories of LGBTI+ people living in Turkey and the diaspora.
What you need to do is very simple: go to en.velvele.net, click on “Support us” and make your donation. That’s all!
Your donations will be used to:
- Keep the Velvele English website up & running
- Maintain ownership to domain addresses
- Pay the copyrights of our writers & translators for Velvele English
With your support, you can be a part of raising our voices against anti-LGBTI+ discourse in Turkey and in the diaspora.
