Hormonlu Domates Awarded in Turkey

Well, these are the winners for the Hormonlu Domates Awards, presented last weekend during Turkey's week-long Gay Pride celebration to the most deserving homophobic institutions in Turkey, as determined by vote on Lambdatistanbul's website. I don't speak Turkish, so I only could figure out who they were presented to. If someone would like to tell me why these groups earned the award, I would be much obliged.

For the press, it was Betül Aşık.

For institutions, it was the mayors of Ankara, Istanbul and Bursa.

For movie/television: Alişan.

And for politics: Ayhan Zeynep Tekin Börü.

For whatever reasons they earned the awards, I'm sure they deserved it.
