22-year-old trans­gen­der Turk­ish LGBT ac­tivist Hande Kadere was found dead in the Is­tan­bul neigh­bor­hood of Zek­eriyaköy on Au­gust 12 af­ter be­ing mer­ci­lessly raped and set on fire. Fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent, peo­ple took to Twit­ter to call for jus­tice and voice their in­dig­na­tion vis-à-vis hate crimes and the dis­crim­i­na­tion against the LGBT com­mu­nity in Turkey un­der the hash­tag #Han­dekadere­sesver which trans­lates roughly into ‘give a voice to Hande Kadere’.
