My current (2016-2017) focus on Wikipedia is improving representation of marginalized people. Transgender/nonbinary people and black people are my priorities. I am active on the LGBT Studies and Women in Red WikiProjects.
At the inaugural Bay Area WikiSalon in April 2016, I participated on a panel discussing transgender issues, and talked about my experiences and frustrations with trans coverage on Wikipedia. I gave a presentation on this subject at WikiConference North America in October 2016 (abstract, slides, PDF).
In June 2016, I created a proposal for the Inspire Campaign to combat harassment by protecting user pages from editing by anonymous and new users. Six months and an RfC later, this idea was implemented via an edit filter. You can read all about it in The Signpost.
In addition to editing Wikipedia articles, I've contributed a bunch of pretty good photos to Wikimedia Commons.
