Thanks for adding LGBT+ people to list
You added some topics in Latin American history to Wiki99/LGBT+. Thanks a lot for that. I live in North America and know very little about LGBT public figures outside my culture.
I wish to encourage proportionate representation of various cultures in some shared list. I appreciate you adding to this because you are filling an information gap and reducing bias of the list. Blue Rasberry (talk) 17:48, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
- @Bluerasberry: any help you might need in the future with regards to LGBT topics in Latin America just let me know, I'll be happy to help :D --Freddy eduardo (talk) 19:23, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
- Do you have any ideas for some major topic which is not a biography?
- Something that came to my mind is that there is a story that in the 1990s Brazil rebelled against the American pharma industry by manufacturing HIV drugs without respect for the United States patent system. The United States told Brazil to pay American prices for these drugs, which would not work for their economy, so they made the drugs themselves in Brazil to save lives. If that is the story then it seems heroic to me. I am not sure if there is a name for this, and also not even sure if this is a popular story in Brazil.
- I really do not know what to imagine. What do you think are big events? Blue Rasberry (talk) 19:35, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
