WikiProject LGBT is the community project for improving LGBT-related content on Wikidata. The community here develops recommendations for modeling LGBT+ content, presents queries for showcasing LGBT content, and is the center for discussion of challenging issues in LGBT+ data curation.

Regular participants in this project are Wikidata community members, but everyone is welcome here! Anyone with questions about accessing Wikidata content, or who has LGBT+ data to share, or who wishes to discuss or propose policy may do so on the discussion page.

How to participateEdit

Anyone can participate in WikiProject LGBT by developing content and participating in discussions.

WikiProject LGBT encourages new users to try editing Wikidata as soon as possible because the only way to understand the social and technical issues around modeling structured data is to have some experience and conversation about doing so. Try creating and editing Wikidata items for biographies, organizations, events, and other sorts of topics for which there are examples in the models page. For new users, browse the tabs at the top of this page. Consider the data models to learn what sorts of content to contribute to Wikidata, look at queries to see how to generate interesting data sets, sign up to join the group, then consider the overall goal this project has to advocate for the LGBT+ community and access to information useful to LGBT+ culture.

Anyone with questions about the intersection of LGBT topics and structured data can ask questions on the talk page.

How can I help?
  1. Add sexual orientation (P91) and sex or gender (P21) to items about LGBT people
  2. Create items about LGBT associations, national or local (LGBT rights organization (Q6458277))
  3. Create items about Pride parades (pride parade (Q51404))
  4. Create items about LGBT choruses (LGBT Chorus (Q1820625))
  5. Create items about LGBT bars (gay bar (Q1043639))
  6. Create items about LGBT film festival (LGBT film festival (Q62018250)). Looking on https://filmfreeway.com/festivals with "queer" as keyword yield still lots of results
  7. Add and complete characters with properties such as LGBTFansDB character ID (P6780), or properties linked to LezWatch.tv (Q65659302)
  8. Discuss with us about the project!
  9. Talk about Wikidata and WikiProject LGBT in your LGBT organization
