This meetup is open to everybody, not only conference attendees.


This meetup is for Wikimedians interested in and supportive of the work of the Wikipedia LGBT+ User Group and will take place at the 2018 Wikimedia Conference. Our user group's three guiding principles are:

  1. Encourage LGBT+ cultural organizations to use Wikimedia projects and to adopt the values of free culture and open access.
  2. Promote Wikimedia projects as a tool for strengthening LGBT+ communities.
  3. Create and expand content of interest to LGBT+ communities on Wikimedia projects and to increase the overall quality of such content in all languages.

Points to discuss (working agenda)[edit]

  • Welcome and introductions
