This is the Wiki99 list for LGBT+ topics. Please visit Wikimedia LGBT+ for general support on LGBT+ issues in Wikimedia projects.


Wiki99 is the idea to have a list of about 99 Wikipedia articles which should be translated into as many languages as possible in order to establish common understanding in a field. The 99 articles should include defining concepts which are less related to any particular culture, and also cultural concepts which promote international diversity of thought in a field.

Please seek to keep this list internationally diverse without focusing on too many cultural concepts, biographies, or events from any one region. It is preferable to include representative articles from as many cultures as possible in this list, while still keeping the list count to about 99.

A major challenge with this list is international representation of biographies and concepts. There is a bias in LGBT+ discussion and history writing to present topics from the English-speaking world and certain Western countries. If anyone has a topic to share from outside Western discussion, and which would be good to promote for translation into every language as part of an international shared LGBT heritage, then please add the idea to the list.

The general idea is to have initial discussion in English as a common language, but then to translate the shared list into other languages so that everyone can share in the common LGBT+ culture and stories. The project works better when there is more cultural diversity presented in all of the listed topics.
