Best Answer

No. There are openly gay people. Turkey is more tolerant than most Muslim nations.

It is not a crime but it is somewhat dangerous. Homosexuality and sex change is possible and legal but majority of the public is Muslim and according to Islam; homosexuality is a very big sin. Openly gay people in Turkey are usually kicked out by their parents. Some of them are even murdered. Because of that; gay people usually end up on the street as prostitutes.
