We are sad and angry to learn that on July 5th, Kemalita Ördek, SWAN Steering Committee member, LGBTQI and sex workers’ rights activist and the founder of Red Umbrella Sexual Health and Human Rights Organization in Turkey, was attacked and raped in her own home. Kemalita was subsequently humiliated and discriminated by the police that also failed to secure her personal safety. The perpetrators were set free and therefore Kemalita is in a life threatening situation due to police discrimination and lack of access to justice.
