Sema Yakar, one of the founders of LISTAG (Families of LGBTs in Istanbul) and mother of LGBTI activist Boysan Yakar who died in a tragic traffic accident in early September, stated in an October 2015 interview with GZone that she would continue Boysan’s unfinished projects:
Boysan always took notes; kept notebooks not to forget what was on his mind. That day I went to the City Council meeting at the City Hall with his notebook. I turned the last page he wrote on and dated the next page. “You left, but we are here and we will keep going,” I said. His notebooks will not remain half-finished. We will keep writing.
I will keep marching on for this fight. As long as I do, Boysan and Zeliş will see me.
Yesterday, Sema Yakar shared pictures from the Washington D.C. offices of the Human Rights Campaign where Boysan had worked in June and a picture of herself in front of the building giving the same pose as Boysan once had.
