"‘I Will Not Have a Moment of Silence Either’ is a publishing project to support and promote a wider circulation of the writings of Gani-Meth, a sex worker and one of the most prominent trans activist of the LGBTI+ scene in Turkey. Her writing often deals with politics of queerness and its repercussions in everyday life, deriving its power from lived experience. Topics that she is dealing with range from body politics of trans individuals to homonormativity; from the critique of police violence against trans communities to sex and drugs trafficking. Her writings stem from her experiences and the underground world she navigates as a sex-worker; from her conversations with and reflections in response to her trans friends as well as other activists to her imaginary conversations with parliament members."
