Stanford Pride has made the decision to deactivate our Twitter account as of June 26, 2023.
Since Elon Musk took over ownership of Twitter last year, it has become an increasingly unsafe space for LGBTQ+ and BIPOC people. Anti-trans and anti-LGBTQ tweets have skyrocketed, particularly after Twitter announced that it was removing its longstanding policy to protect transgender people from targeted misgendering and deadnaming.
Twitter’s direction does not align with Stanford Pride’s values. Stanford Pride’s Board of Directors voted to deactivate our Twitter account and we are reviewing our other social media channels to determine if similar action is needed on those platforms.
