In 2002 a group of Turkish-Americans in San Francisco realized that 9/11 took a toll on the reputation and welfare of the Turkish-American community at large, due to widespread misinformation about Turkey in the US. They decided to promote Turkey in the US by publishing socio-cultural information on Turkey to lessen the impact of the disinformation.
Their efforts paid off in the form of a magazine. Turkuaz in its first issue received an overwhelming amount of interest and support from the Turkish-American community nationwide, quadrupling its initial distribution within its first year.
We bring you a list of published content on the lives of Turkish Expats around the world.
Turkuaz is the premier source of community news, celebrity interviews, fashion and lifestyle of International Turks around the world.
The mission of Turkuaz is to provide an ongoing forum in which Turkish Expats can connect, share and inspire one another.
Since its first issue in 2002, Turkuaz has evolved from a community-oriented quarterly in San Francisco, to a cultural publication in the US, and now a digital video-magazine that caters to the collective experience of Turks living abroad.
