Yeah, Istanbul is progressive although there are old fashioned people. I know openly gay people who live there. Hell, they even took me to an openly gay bar once even though I'm not gay. Nobody seemed to give a ****. I'm sure there are areas I've never been where people are like "THAT IS TERRIBLE" but in the US it's like that too. I found part of Turkey to be similar in thinking to the US. Progressive in some areas, conservative in others.
