The Poster Monday spot of the day is entitled “Stop Trans Murders” and was designed by Ugur Demirci. Ugur was born and lives in İstanbul where he works as artist and designer. He studied graphic design in high school and at Yeditepe University. He also works for some advertising agencies.
For this project Ugur wanted to raise awareness about violence towards transgendered people in Turkey. Turkey is ranked 1st in Europe and 9th in the world for number of transgender people murders. Between January 2008 and April 2016, forty three innocent transgendered people were murdered in Turkey. In 2016 a mutilated and burned body was found in an upscale residential area in Istanbul. It was revealed to be Hande Kader, a 23-year-old transgender woman and well-known LGBTQ activist. Ugur has done a great job on his poster on behalf of transgendered people.
