Queering Wikipedia 2022 Conference Community Engagement Survey

The purpose of this survey is to help QW2022 conference organizers plan a global conference for the LGBTQ+ community.

Your responses will help organizers understand what level of demand there is for the event (how many people in your community think it is important that the event happens) and assess consensus on what topics are important to this community. You can preview the draft conference proposal at QW2022/Proposal.

When responding to this survey, your identity or email is not tracked or retained by the QW2022 team or anyone else. If you would like to be on our contact list for early registration, information and volunteer roles, please sign the draft proposal as a supporter, or email the team in confidence.
