Save Our Children[edit]


I am translating into French your article about Save Our Children. It is an interesting work and I am happy to make it part of the French wikipedia (although I am only working on a subpage now). Unfortunatly, some paragraphes need citations and I am not sure that the articulation of all the ideas is always well-done... I wanted to tell you that because I think Anita Bryant's campaign is one of the most important moments of LGBT history in the US. And perhaps someone here has material which could improve the actual page...

Sorry for my English, I read it better than I write it.

Phyll Opoku-Gyimah[edit]

Could use some fleshing out. There's a couple of sources in the "External links", and more available on-line. All the best: Rich Farmbrough21:43, 6 December 2014 (UTC).

Laura Lam[edit]

Lam is a YA author who's works so far heave an intersex protagonist. The article is listed at AfD. Her article would benefit form attention, and in particular needs research to meet WP:AUTHOR and/or WP:GNG. All the best: Rich Farmbrough15:34, 4 February 2015 (UTC).

Need some help here[edit]


We have an editor copy and pasting from Wikipedia age of consent info to all the LGBT country articles as seem here. We have 2 problems with the edits ...firstly ...Wikipedia's licensing requires that attribution be given. Secondly I personally don't see how age of consent has to do with LGBT rights...let alone be the first thing people see on the pages inquestion. I simply dont have the time to fix all of them...did alot..but would like some help...pls see Contributions AlexMota300 -- Moxy (talk)

Update....I just used my rollback feature ...I hope thats ok as per Wikipedia:Rollback#When to use rollback " revert widespread edits (by a misguided editor)" -- Moxy (talk) 20:31, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
Age of consent is of interest when a jurisdiction sets different ages for same-sex vs. different-sex interactions. Otherwise not. Bmclaughlin9 (talk) 20:49, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
You are correct....but the cut and paste spaming of laws in there entirety that took place did not look to see if that info was already it is in many cases. -- Moxy (talk)

Ali Muhammad Brown 4 murder, 2 LGBT murder spree disruptively tagged[edit]

Ali Muhammad Brown is the prime suspect in a series of 4 murders including 2 LGBT who were lured on Grindr, he has told authorities he was motivated by vengeance for wars in the middle east and his religion, which would be a case of Islamists specifically targeting LGBT as a cover story for the actual anti-American terrorism motive, like targeting other groups such as Jewish or racial minorities. His story has been covered over the span of decades from a terrorism related fraud case to solving the case over the course of several months in 2014. The tags claim that Seattle and New Jersey media and CNN are not reliable, that a case of 4 murders and a fraud case over decades is not notable, and therefore the article is simply original research. Bachcell (talk) 14:50, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

I would suggest raising the issue for discussion on the article's talk page, so that the other editors involved have a chance to explain their concerns. There does seem to be a case of WP:OVERTAGGING given the redundancy of the tags used, but, much more significantly, there are serious sourcing issues with that article.--Trystan (talk) 15:07, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

LGBT history in[edit]

I think this series of articles is little known. Most states are in need of a caring editor. Bmclaughlin9 (talk) 18:46, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Unable to add username to active member list[edit]

Hi. I was trying to add my username to the active members list but in edit mode it only allows you to add to the inactive members list, which it says people are moved to after 6 months of inactivity. It is not showing any input area for active members, only for inactive, it says "if you add your name here you are adding to the inactive list, please scroll up for the active section" but there is nothing at the top, only the start of the inactive section and this is reached by clicking the 'edit' link on the active section and also by clicking the "add your name to the list" main link. In fact as far as I can tell all links are taking you to the inactive section only. It says at the top that all are welcome to join and I wish to join, but it seems something in the formatting of this page prevents people from adding their names to the relevant section which means people are currently unable to join and contribute. Am I doing something wrong, or has the page been compromised? Thanks. Taurusthecat (talk) 16:35, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

I had the same problem you did when working from an iPhone. Then using Firefox on a laptop, no problem at all. You can also access the Members file directly here. Bmclaughlin9 (talk) 17:36, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Thankyou so much for your help. Taurusthecat (talk) 17:49, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

For anyone interested: the problem was s sloppy edit by someone trying to add a user to the members list. That update added text in front of a heading (like this: junk==Members==), so the heading could not be recognized. I've cleaned that up. Bmclaughlin9 (talk) 18:39, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Gay cover album reference on LGBT music page is being deleted by an editor with no understanding of it's relevance to the gay community and I am unable to maintain this entry without assistance[edit]

See Talk:LGBT music
I know nothing about about music and less than nothing about LGBT music, but it may be useful to have a conversation on the talk page of LGBT music about what the criteria is for inclusion. I'm not sure that the music is notable enough to be included on pages about the songs you did covers of, but it may warrant inclusion on the LGBT music article (honestly I have no idea). I recently started similar conversations on List of LGBT and LGBT-friendly fraternities and sororities and List of miscarriage of justice cases. The LGBT article, I felt that as long as it was a national organization, it should be included, regardless of whether it meets GNG. There aren't that many LGBT organizations and I think it makes sense to have lower inclusion criteria for that article because the number of LGBT sororities and frats is very low. Requiring organizations to have enough media coverage to have wikipedia articles excludes too many organization to have a good article. On the other hand, on the miscarriage of justice page, I felt like it made more sense to be more exclusive because there are thousands of possible entries and without strict inclusion criteria, the list will be unmanageably long. When it comes to LGBT music, it might make sense to have entries that don't meet GNG but have some notability in the gay community. That would be my suggestion: start a conversation, get consensus, have an objective set of inclusion criteria that can side step any bias issues. Bali88 (talk) 23:01, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

LGBT project marker or not?[edit]

I just completed an article as part of a project to increase the coverage on English language pages of things on corollary other-language wikis. The subject was a Mexican actress Anita Blanch. There was a reference to her life partner Josefina Vicens in one of the articles. Verified with multiple articles on Vicens (found no others on Blanch). When I checked to make sure the article was not an orphan, I found that it links to Wikipedia:Most-wanted articles. Don't know who put it there. Don't know if there is interest in expanding the files. Certainly Vicen's page could use work. It would appear their relationship was not a secret, but I did not know whether it was appropriate or not to mark them as part of the project. SusunW (talk) 05:17, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

LGBT coverage in bio?[edit]

Just looking for advice on how to cover the LGBT connection at Draft:Gordon Naccarato. He was interviewed by The Advocate in an article about the gayest city in America (Tacoma). I don't want to over- or under-emphasize this. Collaboration on the draft is invited and welcome. — Brianhe (talk) 19:08, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Name discussion on Legal aspects of transsexualism page[edit]

There's a discussion on the talk page of Legal aspects of transsexualism in the United States regarding renaming the page, possibly to Transgender Rights in the United States; more input would be helpful. Funcrunch (talk) 01:35, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
