Goal[edit]

Wiki Loves Pride is organized by the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group

As part of the global Wiki Loves Pride campaign, the Quatrefoil Library is hosting a Wiki Loves Pride edit-a-thon, located in Minneapolis. Space is limited so please RSVP on this page. All others are encouraged to participate remotely through this wiki-page.

Wiki Loves Pride aims to increase the number of people and perspectives contributing to LGBT information on Wikipedia, as well as encouraging institutions to add their authority information, research and images to the public domain. Contributions to information about LGBT topics in politics and policy, medicine, topics in identity sexuality, and society, rights and attitudes, history, culture, and institutions will vastly affect the ways in which these topics are researched and understood internationally. In the past, Wikipedia articles on these topics have been riddled with a lack of scholarly sources and lack of perspectives, skewing public perceptions and affecting research and decisions in public policy, science and medical practice, and community acceptance.
