The gay life of Turkey has been developing very rapidly since early 2000's mainly thanks to proliferation of internet usage and smart phones. Internet has helped gay community around the country combine and expand their activism efforts and has created a very liberal media for Turkish gay, lesbian and transgender people. Consequently hundreds of websites and social media pages have been published for the LGBT community in recent decades. The most popular gay and lesbian websites have been gay dating or chat websites in Turkey like in most other countries, but most of these websites expanded their contents in time to include gay news, info sharing, coverage of political issues etc. Furthermore, some nationwide popular, non-gay Turkish websites have assigned sub-pages and special gay chat channels for the local gay community. For example the most visited website all over Turkey Mynet.com had special chat channels for gay people since late 90's. Majority of the gay websites in Turkey are published in Turkish. During the same period, Turkish gay men have also started interacting with other gay people from all around the world, and there have been considerable developments in gay travel as well. The gay bars and clubs have also started publishing their own business websites which would have English pages for gay visitors from other countries. We are listing here the most prominent samples of websites or web-pages published in English, but remember these are just a drop of water in the sea when compared to hundreds of gay websites published in Turkish.
