Middle East Technical University (METU) Rectorate did not permit the Pride Week and March to be organized by METU LGBTI+ Solidarity on May 7-12. The mail sent to all students by the rectorate indicated that no event will be permitted within the university in accordance with the decision of Ankara Governorate, dated 18 November 2017, preventing all LGBTI+ events in the province.
