My current (2016–present) focus on Wikipedia is improving representation of marginalized people. Transgender/nonbinary people and black people are my priorities. I have been active on the LGBT Studies and Women in Red WikiProjects and the Whose Knowledge? user group.
As of November 2017, I have greatly decreased my editing on Wikipedia, but am still contributing photos to Wikimedia Commons.
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 presentations on this subject at WikiConference North America in October 2016 and at the Wikimedia Foundation in June 2017.
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. I also gave a presentation on this subject at WikiConference North America in August 2017.
I serve on the Board of Directors of the Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco, for which I also work as web and social media manager (since March 2019). I also work for the San Francisco Office of Transgender Initiatives (since January 2020). I contribute to Wikipedia (and Wikimedia Commons) on my own time; no one pays me to do so. If I do ever edit a page directly related to my employment, I will post a COI declaration as appropriate.
