Person Task Force

The Person Task Force is a working group of members of the LGBT studies WikiProject dedicated to ensuring quality and coverage of biography articles of confirmed LGBT persons. It's specific focus is on living persons who have come out publicly, and of deceased persons whose sexuality is not in doubt. As examples, the article on Ellen DeGeneres is within the scope of the task force - she came out publicly in 1997. Little Richard came out, but has (since then) denied being gay, so his article is not in the task force. Examples of deceased persons include the article on Harvey Milk, who was publicly out for most of his life. The article on William Shakespeare, however, would not be within this task force's scope, since his sexuality has been debated.
