To get out of service in the Turkish army, not only do you have to prove you are gay, but you have to be a bottom.  Tops are considered straight.  You have to bring in a porn photo of yourself getting....  well, you know.



I had no idea!  Also the Ottoman Empire legalized gay sex in 1858 - and Texas still hasn't (just not enforcable, due to supreme court decision - but still illegal).  1858!  And that's a muslim country!


I lived in Turkey for 18 months in when I was 20.  Guys openly made passes at me all the time.  I was so naive then - they had to be very blatant for me to figure it out.  Who would have thought that Turkey was more progressive then than the US.
