WATCH: trans reporter is influencing Turkish society

LAST UPDATED // Wednesday, 23 July 2014 10:37 Written by // Andrew Shaw

Transgender news reporter Michelle Demishevich is a symbol for transgender rights in Turkey. 

With plans to run for office in the state legislature, Demishevich says there are some protections for LGBTI people in Turkey, but much still needs to change: she was attacked in a hate crime in 2012.

More recently, Demishevich marched in Istanbul's Pride Parade, the largest in the Muslim world.
