Suggested Wikidata edits[edit]

If you'd like to edit Wikidata, take a look at WikiProject LGBT and especially the section "How can I help?"

Suggested Wikipedia biographies for creation[edit]

Be cautious of pronouns (he/him/his, she/her/hers, them/their/theirs), dead-naming someone (using their previous name prior to transition), or revealing personal information that may out somebody (i.e. reveal their sexuality w/o it being publicly known prior). If in doubt, use their surname rather than pronouns or avoid writing about their personal life.

Listed resources are not complete!

There are also lots of articles you can find to edit in the Wikipedia category for sexual orientation and science and here as suggested by the folks at Wikiproject LGBT Studies. And for some nice easy edits, check that all people are in the right categories, translate information between different language versions of Wikipedia (see the bar at the left of every article to find the different language versions), check that people and their research are mentioned on relevant pages, and check that biography articles are included on lists like these.

You can find advice on how to search for relevant sources on any scientist here.
