In their announcement, the Eskisehir Pride Week Committee shared the following about Gece Yaniker, a 23-year-old trans woman living in Istanbul:

“We have learned that Gece Yaniker, a trans woman who had been missing for a while, was murdered by male violence. The responsibility for this murder lies with the palace fascism that targets trans+ individuals and fosters LGBTI+phobia.
