We are raising money to participate in Eurogames 2023 as a queer-identified volleyball team from Istanbul, Turkey!

Since 2020, we have been fighting within the mixed/amateur volleyball leagues and we have achieved various successes by openly embracing our LGBTQI+ identities. We got acceptance from Eurogames 2023, which will take place in Bern, Switzerland in July.

Although the Volleyball Federation and the Ministry of Sports are substantially supporting volleyball in Turkey, LGBTQI+ athletes are not specifically considered for these funds, scholarships, and financial support. LGBTQI+ athletes also have a hard time coming out and revealing their identities. We want to raise money for costs pertaining to the tournament, preparation process, and attendance.

We are a team composed of activists, students, artists, and academics. We generally finance our team's budget from solidarity parties and other monetary donations from independent activists. Although we can manage ourselves financially, we do not have enough financial power to participate in the tournament with our own resources. This campaign will primarily help us to manage expenses during the tournament (per diem for each player, 8 in total) and also meet the budget for preparation (e.g., trainer costs, gym rental costs for practices, equipment, etc.).

Please widely share our call and support queer athletes!
