If you know even a little about Turkish music, you’ll know his name, Zeki Muren, Turkey’s most prominentsinger. Known as Turkey’s Liberace, Zeki Muren was adored by millions for three decades. He was Turkey’sfirst gay icon, the first man ever to wear a miniskirt on stage. Now an exhibition about his life is pulling in record crowds. In an exhibition hall in central Istanbul, his voice grabs you instantly. This show is all about the extraordinary life of an extraordinary man, Turkey’s most famous classical music singer, Zeki Muren. We went through thousands, maybe tens of thousands of photographs, his letters, and notes that he took, his telephone books, agendas, diaries, the letters he wrote, the letters he received, plus his compositions,drawings, paintings, poems he wrote and written. Over 50,000 people have come to the exhibition in less than two months. This shows how much Zeki Muren is loved, doesn’t it? It definitely does. Yes. He is loved very much and I think he is also missed very much. People come over and over again to see the exhibition. The walls of the exhibition hall are full of hundreds of pictures of Zeki Muren, some of them depicting him on stage; some of them are taken from his films; and some of them are from his day-to-day life. And there is a special section featuring his costumes. He was designing his costumes himself. And these were very extravagant, very flamboyant, shining costumes, and some very high-heeled shoes, too. He started wearing these shining costumes long before David Bowie. Zeki Muren is Turkey’s first gay icon. Zeki Muren was much loved by most of Turkish society, not only by the gay community. However, he got threats, too, by the conservatives who didn’t approve of his sexual identity or his colorful costumes. Once, amob armed with sticks waited for him to appear at the stage door, but he invited them in and said, “Just have a listen to my songs. If you still want to beat me up, you can”. They accepted the invitation, listened to his songs and slowly put the sticks away. In a café I met a theatre director and Jane an LGBT activist, both big fans. There’s a man on the screen. And he is wearing skirt. He is wearing high heels.
