Wikimedia LGBT/Wikimania 2014
Wikimania 2014 will be held in a major LGBT hub city - London - it has been suggested that we expand our offerings for Wikimania 2014. Among the suggestions:
- Local team members indicated willingness to help organize a "Coming Out Party" for Wikimedia LGBT+ - possibly as a fundraiser for future scholarships for LGBT Wikimedians to attend Wikimania - all Wikimania participants and supporters invited
- The Fifth Annual LGBT Wikimania Meetup as a more story sharing and less activity update based meetup - all LGBT Wikimania attendees and supporters are welcome to attend
- A gathering to discuss LGBT activities within Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects, including Wikimedia LGBT
- Possibly a leadership meeting for whatever form Wikimedia LGBT has taken by that time
People are encouraged to submit other ideas either on the mailing list or on this page.
