LGBTQIA+ Earthquake Solidarity
LGBTQIA+s and sex workers in the earthquake area do not receive the humanitarian aid as equally and fairly as others, cannot feel safe in public areas, and are deprived of many basic needs.
The Ahbap Association was established to provide all kinds of help, in the form of in-kind and cash assistance, to those in need, to strengthen the awareness of solidarity across all segments of society, help create a good society made up of good people, build modern and sustainable networks of mutual assistance and solidarity to aid new cooperation models and projects, and protect local culture while contributing to its development, with today’s technological opportunities, moving it into the future.

Zeynep Ağcabay [DJ set]
BUKET YENIDOGAN is a Turkish experimental sound artist who leads rituals of transformation from human to posthuman, from flesh to water. Her performances are all improvised using self-constructed tactile and watery instruments and collaborations with other DJs. In her artistic research practise she builds a future mythology called “The ones who became the ocean” based on hydro-feminism, maternal loss, and ecological speculation, expanding various media from moving image to interactive installations.
Born and raised in Istanbul, Zeynep Ağcabay’s music explores the juxtaposition of Eastern and Western influences on their identity. Growing up with traditional Turkish music playing at home, Zeynep went on to discover new roots in London. Their experimental approach aims to discover a unique blend of these two sonic worlds by composing unusual structures of abstract percussions, ambiguous vocals, ambient soundscapes mixed in with instruments inspired by Turkish ney, kanun, davul and darbuka. Their EP release is coming out on Archaic Vaults under title ‘Ancestral Ground’ later this year.
