Wikipedia is one of the ten most-trafficked websites in the world and often the first place people turn to when curious about a topic. However, articles on LGBTQ issues, rights, people, places and organizations are often lacking. Join us to learn how you can help improve Wikipedia's LGBTQ coverage and how to get started on Wikipedia in general.
This introductory workshop will cover the basics of creating and editing Wikipedia articles, will help you make edits to a set of LGBTQ-related articles that need some work, as well as provide a guide for you to find articles that need assistance in the future.
