Welcome to WikiProject LGBT studies! We're a group of editors who aim to improve Wikipedia's coverage of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and Queer studies topics. WikiProject LGBT studies (WP:LGBT) brings Wikipedia users of various sexual orientations, gender identities, geographic locations, and personal backgrounds together to discuss and collaborate on coverage of LGBT content across Wikipedia. Check out the rest of our project page below and Portal:LGBT to see what we've accomplished so far. If you are new to Wikipedia, or just feeling lost, please click here.

If you would like to help, please add your user name to the members' list below! Anyone with a Wikipedia user account—regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity—is free to join. If you do not already have a free Wikipedia user account, click here to read some reasons to create one.

Nuvola apps kate.png Goals[edit]

  1. To create a thriving WikiProject that rivals WP:MILHIST in its activity, efficiency, and success.
  2. To bring every LGBT related article up to FA status.
  3. To maintain or improve articles that come under our jurisdiction.

Scope and Motivation Scope[edit]

The scope of the projects is to:

  1. Identify and categorize existing LGBT and Queer studies articles on Wikipedia
  2. Develop standards for what is required for LGBT and Queer studies articles to qualify as excellent
  3. Improve the quality of existing LGBT and Queer studies articles
  4. Ensure LGBT and Queer studies articles are in line with Wikipedia's minimum standards and policies, including but not limited to: WP:NOR, WP:V, WP:NPOV
  5. Identify and develop standardized tables, tags and categorization schemes for LGBT and Queer studies articles
  6. Identify and create LGBT and Queer studies articles that are not yet included in Wikipedia
  7. Identify potential material that may be also be transwikied — (i.e. collect information for possible high-quality LGBT/Queer studies textbooks for Wikibooks).

Members of WikiProject LGBT Studies maintain Portal:LGBT. We also share a deletion sorting page with other related WikiProjects, which lists all relevant XfDs within our scope.

What this Wikiproject is not[edit]

  1. This project does not extend beyond the cultural, political and historical manifestation of LGBT and intersex identities, attractions, and relationships, and related societal reactions.
  2. This project does not extol any point of view, political or otherwise, other than that of a neutral documentarian.
  3. This project is not limited to European/North American issues.

Tasks you can do Things you can do[edit]

A lot of people join the project and want to help, but don't really know how. Here's a list of tasks that either need regular attention or fulfill the goals of our project:

Some other ways to help out:

Nuvola apps kalzium.png Departments[edit]

The WikiProject runs several departments to aid us in our goals. Anyone is welcome to help out with any of them.

Assessment[edit]

One of the main tasks of the LGBT WikiProject is to assess the quality of Wikipedia's LGBT articles. The resulting article ratings are used within the project to help in recognising excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work. They also play a role in the WP:1.0 program, which the WikiProject uses to help automate some of the assessing process.

The assessment is done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{LGBTProject}} template banner; this causes the articles to be placed into the appropriate sub-categories of Category:LGBT articles by quality, which serve as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist. WP:1.0 also produces a statistics page, and a log of articles assessed.

To find out more, see the /Assessment page.

Collaboration[edit]

The LGBT WikiProject runs a monthly Collaboration, to try to harness the editing skills of the entire Project to bring one article up to Featured Article standard a month. The COTM article is also peer reviewed shortly before becoming the Collaboration article, in order to help editors pinpoint what most needs changing. See Wikipedia:WikiProject LGBT studies/Collaboration for more information.

New collaborations are currently agreed upon on the talkpage on an ad hoc basis until a more formal nomination process is warranted.

Community department[edit]

The Community Department of the LGBT WikiProject is a centralised place to develop ways of fostering a sense of community and belonging in all our members, and to recruit more people into our community. Editors who are happy and have support when they need it are more likely to work harder at improving articles than if they feel no-one cares.

To achieve this, we currently have:

Any other ideas are welcome! Please propose them on the main talkpage.

As awareness of us grows, WikiProject LGBT studies has been featured in an increasing number of external sources; a list of these is maintained here. There is also a Press kit for anyone interested in drumming up some publicity (or just showing off).

Jumpaclass[edit]

Jumpaclass is a fun semi-competition that the LGBT WikiProject runs to improve the quality of lower-quality articles. There are many processes for higher quality articles, such as Peer review and FAC, but many stubs and start rated articles languish unedited for lack of interest. Jumpaclass is a unique attempt to correct that.

To enter, find an article you would like to improve from the list of assessed LGBT articles: you can choose Stub, Start, or B class articles. You then have seven days to improve the article. If within a week, you "jump" an article one or more assessment classes, you win points that are noted on a leadership board. Check Wikipedia:WikiProject LGBT studies/Jumpaclass for all the details. Challenge a friend to go "head to head" with you and see who can jump their article the furthest!

Peer Review[edit]

The LGBT WikiProject peer review articles on request. This is to encourage better articles by having contributors who may not have worked on articles to examine them and provide ideas for further improvement. The process is highly flexible and can deal with articles of any quality though requesting reviews on very short articles may not be productive as there is little for readers to comment on. This process is not an academic peer review by a group of experts in a particular subject, and articles that undergo this process should not be assumed to have greater authority than any other.

To learn more about our peer review system, see Wikipedia:WikiProject LGBT studies/Peer review.

Person Task Force[edit]

The Person Task Force is a working group of members of the LGBT studies WikiProject dedicated to ensuring quality and coverage of biography articles of confirmed LGBT persons. It's specific focus is on living persons who have come out publicly, and of deceased persons whose sexuality is not in doubt. As examples, the article on Ellen DeGeneres is within the scope of the task force - she came out publicly in 1997. Little Richard came out, but has (since then) denied being gay, so his article is not in the task force. Examples of deceased persons include the article on Harvey Milk, who was publicly out for most of his life. The article on William Shakespeare, however, would not be within this task force's scope, since his sexuality has been debated.

Translation[edit]

If you have another language besides English, please consider adding your name to our List of Translators. Translation is a very new process, so we're still tweaking its purpose and objectives. Feel free to join in the discussion!

Watchlist[edit]

The WikiProject maintains two watchlists: one for controversial LGBT articles, one for all articles tagged as within our scope.

The main Watchlist is here. Anyone who comes across contentious or highly vandalised article is welcome to add to it. The Watchall list may be found here. It lists every article tagged by us, and may also be helpful if a normal alphabetical list is needed. It is updated automatically by bot, so manual changes are not required.

The {{User WikiProject LGBT studies}} member userbox (example below) contains links to both watchlists, as well as a link to all changes on article talk pages tagged by this project.

Nuvola apps korganizer.png Guidelines[edit]

Visit sub page

A person's gender and sexuality is intimate to who they are and how that impacts their personal and professional life will vary. Extreme care should be taken to avoid undue weight focusing on these aspects in relation to the overall article. A statement "Smith is openly gay" may be all that is needed in many cases unless it can be tied to how it impacted their career or life. Sometimes that a person has come out is noteworthy itself but should be reported in the article dispassionately and NPOV - In May 2009 national media reported Smith is transgender. For our readers it is helpful to add the context or any statement from the subject.

Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a newspaper: We follow, not lead. Implicit in the policy on biographies of living people (BLP) is the understanding that Wikipedia articles should respect the basic human dignity of their subjects. Wikipedia aims to be a reputable encyclopedia, not a tabloid; our articles must not serve primarily to mock or disparage their subjects, whether directly or indirectly. Wikipedia's articles are mirrored and distributed globally, what we write here can negatively impact people's lives; even the families and friends of someone discussed in articles. This is of particular importance when dealing with individuals whose notability stems largely from their being victims of another's actions; Wikipedia editors must not act, intentionally or otherwise, in a way that amounts to participating in or prolonging the victimization. The correct balance must always be sought, and the highest ethical standards are an important part of Wikipedia's goals to produce and distribute content freely.

  1. Sexuality and sexual identity are not interchangeable. However the two often intersect and defining the effects of each can be difficult if not impossible.
  2. The Wikipedia Manual of Style's guidelines on identity indicate to refer to transgender individuals according to the names and pronouns they use to identify themselves.
  3. Identification and categorization of people is bound by Wikipedia's policy on Biographies of Living Persons (BLPs). To add content on a person's religion, sexuality and gender variance you need reliable sourcing. After taking that into account:
a. A living person may be categorized and identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) only if they themselves publicly identify as such, e.g., Billie Joe Armstrong.
b. A deceased person may be categorized and identified as LGBTI if they had documented, notable relationships with their same sex or with both sexes, such as Marlon Brando.

For transgender and intersex people it is usually unneeded to put information on their gender, including an apparently male or female birth name, in the lead of the article, especially on a BLP. Often this should be woven into an "Early life" section - "Smith was born male but never felt this reflected who she was and she transitioned as soon as she was independent of her family." Ideally statements from the subject will help clarify how they saw themselves at the time so we can let them speak for themselves.

MOS guidelines help guide editing but do not trump our policies on BLP's and consensus.

  • In cases where the prior name of a gender variant person is only known as the result of an outing, the prior likely should be left out of the article unless widely reported in reliable sources.
  • In cases where a gender variant person was not notable under their prior name, but has subsequently confirmed a different gender identity, the prior name should be limited to the main article. There is likely no need to bring attention to this by adding to the lede or an infobox. (See Do No Harm.)
  • In cases where a gender variant person is notable under a prior name, listing in the lede and infobox should be agreed upon by consensus to do so.

I greatly expanded the article on the case behind the play M.Butterfly, Bernard Boursicot. I have also tried to add details of her Lesbian identity to the Kitty Genovese article but get shot down every time. I've joined the project out of frustration over having anti-LGBT activists delete any mention of being LGBT from articles on historical people or incidents involving LGBT people even when the people self-identified as such.
