Gay activists disrupted a human rights conference in Ankara, Turkey, on April 15, demanding that the government’s minister for families and children, Aliye Kavaf, apologize for having called homosexuality a “disease.”
Kavaf recently told a newspaper: “I believe homosexuality is a biological disorder, a disease. It needs to be treated.”
Gay groups also recently staged a public protest in Istanbul over the outburst.
