I'm a transgender woman living in Turkey. Recently, my landlord unexpectedly entered my home and threatened to evict me due to my transgender identity, based on transphobia. We explained our legal rights and managed to have the landlord evicted. However, a few days later, we began receiving threatening phone calls, some of which were violent. The real estate agent, the landlord, and the apartment manager kept contacting me to threaten me. Because we live in the same building, some people who are uncomfortable with my transgender identity started a petition campaign. Some apartment residents signed it, and some even made violent threats.

For our safety, we no longer feel secure and have to vacate the house. At the moment, I have no household items, and I need some basic items to continue my life and create a safe space. To access the healthy environment I mentioned, I need a budget. However, as a transgender woman in a society where I have no personal safety, finding a job has become nearly impossible. I decided to start this fund as a last resort, and I need your solidarity. I want to thank in advance anyone who wants to support me financially or morally.

Ben T├╝rkiye'de ya┼čayan trans bir kad─▒n─▒m. Ge├žti─čimiz g├╝nlerde ev sahibim beklenmedik bir ┼čekilde evime girdi ve transfobimden dolay─▒ trans kimli─čim nedeniyle beni evden ├ž─▒karmakla tehdit etti. Yasal haklar─▒m─▒z─▒ anlatt─▒k ve ev sahibinin tahliye edilmesini sa─člad─▒k. Ancak birka├ž g├╝n sonra, baz─▒lar─▒ ┼čiddet i├žeren tehdit telefonlar─▒ almaya ba┼člad─▒k. Emlak├ž─▒, ev sahibi ve apartman y├Âneticisi beni tehdit etmek i├žin s├╝rekli benimle ileti┼čime ge├žiyordu. Ayn─▒ binada ya┼čad─▒─č─▒m─▒z i├žin trans kimli─čimden rahats─▒z olan baz─▒ ki┼čiler imza kampanyas─▒ ba┼člatt─▒. Baz─▒ apartman sakinleri bunu imzalad─▒, hatta baz─▒lar─▒ ┼čiddet i├žeren tehditlerde bulundu.

G├╝venli─čimiz i├žin art─▒k kendimizi g├╝vende hissetmiyoruz ve evi bo┼čaltmak zorunda kal─▒yoruz. ┼×u anda hi├žbir ev e┼čyam yok ve hayat─▒m─▒ devam ettirebilmek ve g├╝venli bir alan yaratabilmek i├žin baz─▒ temel e┼čyalara ihtiyac─▒m var. Bahsetti─čim sa─čl─▒kl─▒ ├ževreye ula┼čabilmek i├žin bir b├╝t├žeye ihtiyac─▒m var. Ancak ki┼čisel g├╝venli─čimin olmad─▒─č─▒ bir toplumda trans bir kad─▒n olarak i┼č bulmam neredeyse imkans─▒z hale geldi. Son ├žare olarak bu fonu ba┼člatmaya karar verdim ve dayan─▒┼čman─▒za ihtiyac─▒m var. Bana maddi veya manevi destek olmak isteyen herkese ┼čimdiden te┼čekk├╝r etmek istiyorum.

Ich bin eine Transgender-Frau, die in der T├╝rkei lebt. K├╝rzlich ist mein Vermieter unerwartet in meine Wohnung eingedrungen und hat mich aufgrund meiner Transgender-Identit├Ąt bedroht, basierend auf Transphobie. Wir haben unsere rechtlichen Rechte erl├Ąutert und es geschafft, den Vermieter aus der Wohnung zu verweisen. Ein paar Tage sp├Ąter begannen wir jedoch bedrohliche Telefonanrufe zu erhalten, von denen einige sogar gewaltt├Ątig waren. Der Immobilienmakler, der Vermieter und der Wohnungsverwalter haben st├Ąndig Kontakt zu mir aufgenommen, um mich zu bedrohen.

Da wir im selben Geb├Ąude wohnen, starteten einige Personen, die sich mit meiner Transgender-Identit├Ąt unwohl f├╝hlten, eine Petitionskampagne. Einige Wohnungsbewohner haben diese unterschrieben, und einige haben sogar gewaltt├Ątige Drohungen ausgesprochen. Aus Sicherheitsgr├╝nden f├╝hlen wir uns nicht mehr sicher und m├╝ssen die Wohnung r├Ąumen. Im Moment besitze ich keine Haushaltsgegenst├Ąnde und ben├Âtige einige grundlegende Dinge, um mein Leben fortzusetzen und einen sicheren Raum zu schaffen. Um die gesunde Umgebung zu erreichen, von der ich gesprochen habe, ben├Âtige ich ein Budget. Als Transgender-Frau in einer Gesellschaft, in der meine pers├Ânliche Sicherheit nicht gew├Ąhrleistet ist, ist es nahezu unm├Âglich, einen Job zu finden. Ich habe mich entschlossen, diesen Fonds als letzte M├Âglichkeit zu starten, und ich ben├Âtige eure Solidarit├Ąt. Ich m├Âchte mich im Voraus bei jedem bedanken, der mich finanziell oder moralisch unterst├╝tzen m├Âchte. SOLIDARIT├äT RETTET ­čĆ│´ŞĆÔÇŹÔÜž´ŞĆ­čĆ│´ŞĆÔÇŹ­čîł
