a population about 12 million is the capital of gay scene in
Turkey. Just as Turkey is a mixture of east and west,
Istanbul is a summary of all country. Its cosmopolite life
leads to a very colorful gay life; you can encounter quite
trendy gay clubs as well as astonishingly traditional and
local ones near one another in this city. The rich and
the poor, the modern and the old-fashioned, the intellectual
and the illiterate are all here in this city, sometimes
inside one another. Queers, transvestites, bears, modern
gays, bisexual men, lesbians, rent-boys are all parts of
this vivacious world. Since Istanbul itself is a very
charming city with its historical, cultural and natural
beauties, it won't be exaggeration to say that Istanbul is
one of the cities classified as "Don't die before you see
it" especially for gay men.
