Muamma Football Team​

TURKEY

 

Muamma  football is a well-known LGBTIQ+  Football  team in Mersin, Turkey founded 7 years ago by queers & feminists to increase the visibility of women & LGBTIQ+ in sports, mainly football. As the pitches are one of the main areas where sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and biphobia are being constantly reproduced, Muamma believes that it is a key area that needs to be transformed. And they also showcase the joy that can come from it if we look out for each other and not only focus on winning. Focusing on various marginalized communities such as the unemployed, Kurds, migrants, Alevites, people with disabilities etc, Muamma tries to make football and pitches accessible & enjoyable for everyone who has been excluded from them!
