This page is for coordinating the coordination, or "business", aspects of Wikimedia LGBT+'s development.



The long-term plan is incorporate as a thematic organization under the name Wikimedia LGBT if we get authority to use Wikimedia LGBT+ from the WMF. This organization currently is not registered in any way.

In the meantime, it has been proposed that the group adopt the name "LGBT Wikimedians User Group" to apply for user group status, while still working towards thematic organization status.

Scope and territorial overlap with national chapters[edit]

  • The territory of activity is everywhere in the world where there are people interested in achieving our mission.
  • Initially the organization will be placed in the USA, UK, Netherlands, or Germany. However, people from around the world will be able to join as voting members.


Main article: Wikimedia LGBT+/Privacy

Privacy has been, and remains, the top priority of Wikimedia LGBT+ organizers and advisors. It is vital to the protection and safety of participants as not all members will be from nations that have LGBT friendly laws.
