You may have noticed that many people on Facebook have been required to either change their names or have their accounts suspended or deleted…and it has many people in our LGBTQ communities outraged.
This policy crackdown is affecting people in trans communities who may not use the name on their birth certificate in real life, as well as performers who use stage names, and people who have been in domestic abuse situations or have been the victim of stalking.
We at Q Center feel this policy is discriminatory and, in some cases, dangerous. There is a petition on Change.org going around to tell Facebook to stop this discrimination. Let’s give them a piece of our collective mind, Oregon!
