Wiki Loves Pride, India was held during July 2014, culminating with offline events in Bangalore, Delhi and Mangalore on July 19.


As part of an all-day event, A GLAM Day Out, guest archivist Bob Skiba, LGBT archivist at the William Way LGBT Center in Philadelphia, talked about LGBT history in Philadelphia and about some very exciting initiatives. Over the next year there will be a number of LGBT-related exhibits at different galleries, libraries, and museums in the Philadelphia area including Constitution Center, the Mutter Museum, the Library Company of Philadelphia and more. The LGBT archives have also received a grant funding a substantial expansion, doubling their space and installing climate control and other features at the archives.

A dozen people attended the afternoon's "Wiki Loves Pride" editing event, creating 2 new articles and editing others. One of the new articles is for the Anna Crusis Women's Choir, the first feminist choir in the United States, which has been active in supporting LGBT rights and other social justice causes. Photographs relating to the forty-year history of the choir are being released as we obtain the appropriate permissions to cover their licensing.

South Africa

  • De Waterkant
  • Date/Time: Saturday, June 21, 2014
  • Venue: De Waterkant, Cape Town
  • South Africa's pride season takes place earlier in the year during the summer, hence a focus on LGBT culture instead of pride events. Over 60 images of De Waterkant, a gay village in Cape Town, taken on 21 June 2014 were uploaded and a Commons gallery page was created to display them. The following selection was submitted to the Commons photo challenge:
  • Past Pride events


  • Nearly 25 images were uploaded, illustrating Pride 2009, Pride 2013 and Davie Village


  • Nearly 50 images from Life Ball 2014 were uploaded

Policies and Proposals

In response to calls for online privacy by a few editors who live in countries where support for LGBT issues is a cultural and political taboo, a proposal to create exemptions for open proxy editing with Tor has been developed.

When Wikimedia community members are targeted for harassment and cyberbullying due to their participating in Wikimedia community projects, the community should support the victims even when it is not possible or reasonable to address the attacker.

Articles Expanded or Improved


Photography campaigns were hosted in a handful of locations around the world, including Portland (Oregon), Seoul, South Africa and Vancouver. In addition, Wikimedia Commons hosted an LGBT photo challenge during June, in conjunction with Wiki Loves Pride. Highlights:

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that can be read and edited by humans and machines alike. It is for data what Wikimedia Commons is for media files: it centralizes access to and management of structured data, such as interwiki references and statistical information. Wikidata contains data in every language supported by the MediaWiki software.

June 2014 saw the creation of the LGBT task force at Wikidata, which seeks to improve LGBT-related content. In addition to the creation of this new group, a report was created which consists of people who have been identified as LGBT at English Wikipedia, but not at Wikidata. This is one of several projects being discussed by task force members. 10 users joined the LGBT task force in June 2014.
