Statement on the term “Queer”[edit]

The conference series organizers recognize that various terms and acronyms are in use to represent diverse populations and communities within the spectra of sexualities and gender identities / expressions (ex: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, asexual, non-binary, two-spirit, third gender, LGBT+, LGBTQ+, LGBTQQ2IA*, QUILTBAG, SOGI, etc). The term “Queer” is used here to represent all who self-identify as members of these various communities and work toward solidarity for those affected by related discriminations.

Statement about Wikipedia and Wikimedia[edit]

While this conference series is named “Queering Wikipedia”, it is intentionally inclusive of all Wikimedia projects (Wikipedia, Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, etc.)
