Turkish translation:Ben lezbiyenim
Explanation:
THE TURKISH WORD FOR LESBIAN IS LESBIAN.
THERE IS ANOTHER WORD WHICH IS "SEVICI".
IT IS A BIT OLDISH AND COMMONLY REPLACED BY LESBIAN, ALTHOUGH IT IS A TURKISH WORD WHICH LESBIAN IS NOT.
I THINK THAT THERE IS NO ARTICLES IN TURKISH AND THAT THEREFORE THE "A" IS TO BE DROPPED. I SUGGEST YOU EITHER "BEN LEZBİYENİM" OR "BEN SEVİCİYİM". CHEERS.
