A peace project in Madrid from June 23rd to June 27th 2017!. We want to participate in the world pride 2017 in Madrid, as there is more content needed concerning lgbt activists and related issues on Wikipedia. We will be able to take part in the opening event of World Pride in 2017 and also in the human rights summit at World Pride Madrid.

You can register for the event at outreachdashboard so we can track how many articles were created and how often they were viewed.

What is the world pride?

WorldPride, organized by InterPride, is an event that promotes lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT pride) issues on an international level through parades, festivals and other cultural activities. Founded by Paul Stenson. From 2014, the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, the event will be held on a five-year cycle.

What is Wikipedia for Peace?

We think that Wikipedia needs more and better content on social movements, justice and peace in general. So we started up Wikipedia for Peace, which is a community project organized by Wikimedia. Several events will be organized in the future in different countries to create content on peace issues.

What will we do at the World Pride in Madrid?

Participants are also welcome to take photographs of the world pride in Madrid to later publish them on Wikimedia commons. We will participate in the opening event the inauguration at the Matadero. We will also visit Pride Park. Lastly we will visit the human rights summit at campus of Cantoblanco of the autonomous university of Madrid.

Accommodation will be provided by Wikimedia Spain. The venue where participants will be able to edit and upload pictures will be the Medialab-Prado. Travel costs for flights will most likely be paid by the respective home branches of the participants.
