“Good As You in Turkey”

[quote style=”1″]Jack Scott opens up  about sexual ambiguity and gender expectations living in Istanbul, Turkey. One of my favorite quotes from the article is this: “Turkey is a magical land graced by a rich culture, gorgeous people, and a love of family which I truly honour.

However, Matt Krause shows us another side of Istanbul that most people probably wouldn’t think of seeing. He says that the residents even find his “road less taken” kind of ridiculous. What do you think?[/quote]
