About WP:LGBT[edit]

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. WP:LGBT brings together Wikipedians of all sexual orientations, gender identities, geographic locations, and personal backgrounds to collaborate on expanding and improving LGBT content across Wikipedia.

The scope of WP:LGBT includes:

  1. Identifying and categorizing LGBT and queer studies articles on Wikipedia
  2. Developing and applying standards for assessing LGBT and queer studies articles
  3. Improving existing LGBT and queer studies articles and ensuring they are in-line with Wikipedia's standards and policies
  4. Identifying notable LGBT and queer studies topics not yet included in Wikipedia and creating articles for them
  5. Identifying and developing standardized tables, templates and categorization schemes for LGBT and queer studies articles
  6. Identifying potential material that may be transwikied — (i.e. collect information for possible high-quality LGBT/Queer studies textbooks for Wikibooks)
  7. Maintaining Portal:LGBT and Portal:Transgender

This project does not extol any point of view, political or otherwise, other than that of a neutral documentarian.


Joining the discussion at WT:LGBT is a great way to get started. Ask questions, suggest articles for creation or improvement, and connect with other WP:LGBT members. And the best part is you do not need to be a project member to post a message.

For Discord users, the channel #wplgbt exists on the Wikipedia:Discord community server as a place to facilitate real-time discussion and conversation.
