The illumination of Levent-Boğaziçi University subway with the M6 line in 2 has been transformed into monochrome days before the Honor Week. Boğaziçi University LGBTI + Studies Club reacted to the decision and complained to İBB Beyaz Masa.
“We did it at the request of the passengers“
Boğaziçi University LGBTI + Studies Club communicated with the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Beyaz Masa after publishing the event on social media. When the club asked why the colored lighting was removed, the IMM White Table stated that the lighting was ın fixed on a single color at the request of the passengers Kulüp.
The club shared the following statement on Facebook accounts:
“IMM Beyaz Masa, in his responses to our complaints made as a passenger, was content with saying that such a thing was done at the" request of the passengers ". However, who are these passengers did not give an answer. We ask IMM, which titles are passengers superior to others? How can the passengers who demand the metro stations to return to their old color be answered by saying “the passengers wanted it became one color”? Aren't those who want a colorful station your passengers, what kind of hierarchy is observed among your passengers? We see the attitude of the IMM as a result of the hate speech and targeting towards the Pride Week and therefore towards LGBTI + individuals. "
