Hello wiki editors in Bangladesh,
I am writing to share news of Queering Wikipedia, an April 2019 conference
in Austria for LGBT+ Wikipedia editors and people who edit LGBT topics. See
the conference page here.
At this three day conference about 70 people will convene to discuss how to
manage coverage of LGBT+ topics in Wikipedia and also support LGBT editors.
This is a 3-day conference and the first wiki LGBT major event. If anyone
in Bangladesh is interested in attending then I would like to support any
applicants who themselves have some support from the local community to
attend. Geographic diversity is a goal in awarding scholarships, so if
anyone editing in Bangla has a history of LGBT editing or experience in
LGBT advocacy, then I expect the scholarship committee would award at least
one scholarship if anyone from Bangladesh applied. Apply before 18 January
Thanks - if anyone has questions then feel free to post on the conference
talk page, ask your colleagues in the Wikimedia Bangladesh chapter, or
write to me.
