- The Wikimedia LGBT+ telegram channel has reached 95 members, which means it's the main comms channel for volunteers who identify with the user group. There has been relatively few attempts since creation to spam or misuse the channel, but it has been suggested that we could make it a private group, which would mean users can only be added by an admin. May be implications for our "comms plan" longer term and whether we can claim any channel is a safe space. (Fæ)
