Join us for a Wiki Loves Pride Edit-a-thon, aimed at increasing the number of people and perspectives contributing to LGBT information on Wikipedia. Historically, Wikipedia articles on these topics have been plagued by a lack of scholarly sources and multiple perspectives, skewing public perceptions and affecting research and decisions in public policy, scientific and medical practice, and community acceptance. Contributions to information about LGBT topics in politics and policy, medicine, identity and sexuality, rights and attitudes, history, culture, and institutions will vastly affect the ways in which these topics are researched and understood internationally.
The Museum organizes a wide range of edit-a-thons, in which participants communally create and update Wikipedia entries on a given topic. Tutorials for beginner Wikipedians, reference materials, and refreshments are provided. Bring a laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. The editing-averse are always welcome to stop by to show their support.
