Wikipedia:WikiProject LGBT studies
|This is a WikiProject, an area for focused collaboration among Wikipedians. New participants are welcome; please feel free to join!|
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:
- Identifying and categorizing LGBT and queer studies articles on Wikipedia
- Developing and applying standards for assessing LGBT and queer studies articles
- Improving existing LGBT and queer studies articles and ensuring they are in-line with Wikipedia's standards and policies
- Identifying notable LGBT and queer studies topics not yet included in Wikipedia and creating articles for them
- Identifying and developing standardized tables, templates and categorization schemes for LGBT and queer studies articles
- Identifying potential material that may be transwikied — (i.e. collect information for possible high-quality LGBT/Queer studies textbooks for Wikibooks)
- 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.
