relationships that are not based on marriage, its approach has tended to be influenced by the hegemonic nuclear family ideal. In particular, the ECtHR’s equality-based approach to same-sex relationships has left it with little to say about the rights of children raised in LGBT families. It has largely been left

Recent victories for LGBT rights, especially the spread of same-sex marriage, have gone faster than most people imagined possible. Yet the accompanying rise of gay 'normality' has been disconcerting for activists with radical sympathies. Global in scope and drawing on a wide range of feminist, anti-racist and queer scholarship and analysis, Warped: Gay Normality and Queer Anti-Capitalism shows how the successive 'same-sex formations' of the past century and a half, corresponding to different phases of capitalist development, have led both to the emergence of today's 'homonormativity' and 'homonationalism' and to ongoing queer resistance. The book's second half summarises different sexual rebellions and the queer dimension of multifarious movements for social justice and transformation, seeing in them harbingers of a unified and powerful queer anti-capitalism.

Page 3 sections of the newspapers are mostly known for the use of erotic images accompanied with the magazine life. In Turkey, these pages have come up to be the sections where the news for domestic violence, child abuse and rape cases are published. In this study, we aim at analysing how violence against/by women and LGBT individuals are represented in the Turkish media through a discourse analysis of third pages in online Turkish newspapers published after 2007. Along with the findings of our research, we argue that the narratives of the online news concerning the violence against women and LGBT individuals trivialise this violence through tabloidization, individualization and moralization. The news on Page 3 legitimize the violence and reproduce conservative values by applying to reasoning of general moral principles as well as justifying and romanticizing even the cases of honour-killing as ‘love-murders’.
