Consider organizing a photography project to illustrate LGBT culture and history in your region. Projects could take the form of a group photo hunt, or simply showcasing LGBT-related images uploaded during the month of June. Be sure to add your images to relevant articles!

Uploading Images to Commons[edit]

  • Option 1: Upload your photographs to Wikimedia Commons. To contribute you can use the Commons Upload wizard tool.
  • Option 2: Upload your photographs to Flickr with a public domain, Creative Commons (CC0 license).
  • Email: <wikilgbt@gmail.com> and let us know where your photographs are so we can add them to Wikipedia pages, and our image galleries.

If you have questions about any aspects of this process please get in touch!

Resources[edit]

Photography Tips[edit]
