Goal

Wiki Loves Pride is organized by the user group Wikimedia LGBT+

As part of the global Wiki Loves Pride campaign, the Museum of Modern Art is hosting a Wiki Loves Pride edit-a-thon at the MoMA Library, located in the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building at 4 West 54th Street in New York City. Space is limited so please RSVP via Eventbrite to attend at the Museum. 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.

Tasks
