As part of the international Wiki Loves Pride initiative, Wikimedia Community Ireland and the GAZE International Film Festival are celebrating LGBTQ history and culture on Wikipedia. The workshop is taking place in the Lighthouse Cinema, in Smithfield, Dublin, 7 August at 11am to 1pm.
All are welcome, no editing experience is necessary and the event is free.
All you need to take part is a laptop!
An editing workshop or editathon is a hands-on event in which participants can learn how to start editing Wikipedia. The aim is to make Wikipedia inclusive and reflect diversity by creating content on the LGBT discourse: history, culture, rights, equal opportunities. This event aims to bring new and existing Wikipedia users of various sexual orientations, gender identities, geographic locations, and personal backgrounds together to discuss and collaborate on coverage of LGBTQ content across Wikipedia.
To prepare please CREATE A WIKIPEDIA ACCOUNT (if you don’t already have one). Very few details are needed: a username, password, and we recommend giving your email, if only to be reminded of your password when you forget it.
