Kaos GL Association called for people against Homophobia and Transphobia for the parade:

We will march against hypocrite morals of heterosexist system which restrains all lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) individuals behind a lie wall with their judgments and insults, which makes LGBT individuals’ lives miserable by exposing them to compulsory heterosexuality in their schools, which slaughters LGBT individuals in metropolises...

We will march for the fight against heterosexist exploitative system which tries to assimilate us by eliminating all ethnic, cultural and sexual differences thus which tries to kill us…

We will march against the hidden and undeclared war of heterosexist system aimed at LGBT individuals...

May we march all together to get stronger together and to liberate together!

Liberation of LGBT individuals will liberate heterosexuals too!

There is a place for everyone under the rainbow flag!
