Hello Glendonites, we are GLgbt* which is short for Glendon Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender— one of your levy-funded student organizations! Previously known as Glendon Positive Space, we are Glendon’s all-inclusive and diverse student group that is dedicated to creating an open and safe environment where people can discuss queer issues on our campus. We aim to foster a spirit of togetherness and respect by accommodating all LGBTTIAQQ2SPGSM persons as well as their allies and if we completely lost you there, that stands for: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Intersex, Asexual, Queer, Questioning, Two-Spirit, Pansexual, and Gender and Sexual Minorities. For a decade (and for many years before then as Glendon Positive Space) GLgbt* has accomplished so much and we now look forward to an even brighter future ahead.
Our space on campus is located at Room #4 within the Historic Gate Cottage just near the main entrance parking lot. You can become part of our community by participating in our events like awareness campaigns, movie nights and pub nights. For example, we invite PFLAG to speak and create an open forum for discussion, we have tabling and fundraising for events like World AIDS Day and we actively participate in Pride Week events for York@Pride! You can connect with us on Facebook (fb.com/glendonlgbt), Twitter (@GLgbt) and we also have a WordPress (glendonlgbt.wordpress.com) that acts as the main source for official GLgbt* news or you can contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to have your voices heard, so shoot us a message with your questions, suggestions or concerns.
