Turkey Boycotts Eurovision Over LGBTQ Performers
According to HuffPost, Turkey's boycott of the Eurovision Song Contest for including gay and transgender performers was criticized on Thursday.
Critics of the boycott say it an attempt to “erase the LGBT community” in the country.
Turkish Radio and Television head Ibrahim Eren said Turkey was unlikely to take part again next year because the annual competition features LGBT singers.
The country has not participated in the longest-running international annual TV music competition since 2012.
