Glasgow University’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer Plus (GULGBTQ+) Students' Association is one of the largest student societies on campus.
We’re here to provide a safe and welcoming space for LGBTQ+ individuals and we do so by putting on a range of social, welfare and campaign events throughout the year.
Facebook's new 'real-name policy' states that those with profile pages must "provide the name they use in real life." They have been alerted to our page and we have been asked to provide identification to confirm that 'Glasgow Uni Lgbtq Plus' is our real name. However, this obviously is not the case. Facebook reaffirms that "profiles are for individual use only" and that they "offer pages for organisations and businesses" - we have therefore been left with no other option but to move over to a 'like' page.
As of the 31st August, our profile page will cease to exist. Please like our new page - www.facebook.com/gulgbtqplus - to keep up to date with upcoming events and stay in touch with what the society are doing. It would also be greatly appreciated if you could share our new page and invite your friends to 'like' us. We have a large social media presence and it would be unfortunate to see this deteriorate.
See you on the other side,
