@Dipilato.k: good, looks like you have decent sources of good exemplars. BTW: Note how I fixed your links to other articles. -Reagle (talk) 16:51, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
@Dipilato.k:, I'm so glad someone will be doing an article on this group! I'd just add that if you want more of a historical view, there are also quite good articles on the Boston Gay Men's Chorus in the library's subscription to the backfiles of the Boston Globe. This one, from 1991, for example: http://ezproxy.neu.edu/login?url=https://search-proquest-com.ezproxy.neu.edu/docview/294610360?accountid=12826 AmandaRR123 (talk) 16:31, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
@Dipilato.k:, in addition to the online Boston Globe backfiles that Amanda mentioned, we also have the records of the Boston Gay Men's Chorus in our library archives if you really feel like getting your hands dirty! LibrarianBTeam (talk) 14:32, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

Hsienhsienlee, those are good sources, I wonder if you can find more or will have enough content? Perhaps you'll be able to find info in reviews of her books, or contacting the The Brookline Holocaust Project? I recommend working with User:AmandaRR123 and User:LibrarianBTeam. -Reagle (talk) 14:11, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
Hsienhsienlee, I'd also add that the fact that she's a published author helps, so looking for titles on Amazon and listing those are her publications would be a good idea. She's also covered in a lot of sources as Rena Margulies (a pitfall of researching women, the change to married names!), so try that search in places like the library's general database search.

Casey.ha, Looks good. I think the Youtube videos should serve as acceptable sources. Also, you must be careful of WP:COI given you are from the same university. -Reagle (talk) 17:15, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Topic: The Bechdel Cast[edit]

Moreno.ci, you should find additional external sources (bechdelcast.com wouldn't count toward your minimum of four) . Podcasts are frequently critiqued for lack of notability, so you'll need strong sources.. Also, what of similar articles that you can use as exemplars? -Reagle (talk) 17:15, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
