    I was there in '05 with Atlantis in Istanbul
    They've also gone in other places in turkey
    ...but they've also had their troubles there
    There were almost refused entry a few years ago
    Once again that Wonderful big Man in the Sky tells them these things

    As far as the Oil Wrestling goes
    Come ON.... Can this be any Hotter for a Gay Man ?? icon_biggrin.gif

    I dont think Gay cruises are going to the wrestling events anymore due to negative reactions....

    We must respect local traditions. These are very traditional people, you cant go there attend their event and be hooting hollering and being all out gay. It's just rude. If you want to go and watch fine but don't be all show-offy and flamboyant. It's not like they're going to taunt you, they won't but they will not be happy that their husbands and teenager kids are being made self-conscious about their pseudo-gay tendencies venting event that is Kirkpinar...
