The climbing article Taylor Parsons has been PROD'ed twice (once by me) as there is almost no RS on "Taylor Parsons", however, Taylor transitioned from Chris Webb Parsons, a bouldering climber for whom there is RS (and therefore it is a valid BLP). I can see in the article's history that someone made a direct request to the WP help desk to rename the article from Chris to Taylor (to reflect the transition). My question is how is this handled in the BLP - do we say in the lede something like "Taylor Parsons (previously known as Chris Webb Parsons)? What is the correct format/approach? To my knowledge, she is the first climber that I have ever known to have made a transition. 09:48, 6 January 2023 (UTC) (talk) 09:48, 6 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You might find MOS:GENDERID helpful. Specifically on the question of former names of people who have transitioned, it says: A living transgender or non-binary person's former name should be included in the lead sentence of their main biographical article only if they were notable under it; introduce the name with "born" or "formerly". So if Parsons was notable before she transitioned, the lead should begin something like: "Taylor Parsons (born Chris Webb Parsons) is an Australian professional rock-climber..."

Chelsea Manning and Caitlyn Jenner are both Good Articles which are biographies of living trans people notable under their pre-transition name, if you want example articles to be able to point to. Caeciliusinhorto-public (talk) 10:58, 6 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you for that - much appreciated. (talk) 11:35, 6 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bund für Menschenrecht[edit]

The Draft:Bund für Menschenrecht was the first gay organization in the world. This draft was created by a now-indeffed sockpuppet as a translation of de:Bund für Menschenrecht on German Wikipedia, but the topic is definitely notable, and deserves to have an article here. If someone could check the sourcing a bit, and either move it to mainspace if it's ready for prime time, or beef it up if not, that would be a great addition to coverage of the LGBT space.

Buidhe brought First homosexual movement to FA and might have the sources and knowledge to do something with this... Caeciliusinhorto-public (talk) 10:36, 11 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Amplifying Appalachia Edit-a-thon, entire month of March 2023[edit]

Hi everyone,

Some of you might have participated in previous years' events, which have yielded a ton of improved Appalachian content on Wikipedia.

For 2023, folks from WVU libraries and beyond are holding an asynchronous editing event for the entire month of March (1-31)!

Our Edit-a-thon is focused on amplifying the stories and figures of under-represented Appalachian artists, writers, and other creators, particularly womxn, people of color, LGBTQ+ individuals, and other disenfranchised communities. We have been lucky enough to work with Art+Feminism and our event is held under that umbrella!

If you want to participate, please sign up through this link: ... which will take you to our event dashboard, which has some starting points for pages that need some attention (under construction as of 2/4/2022). The password to join is "app23" (no quotation marks). Rhizomesandranch (talk) 17:06, 12 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Necessity of adding citations to List of video games with LGBT characters: 2010s page[edit]

Recently, I've done a little work on this page, and added some citation needed tags to it, in hopes that people will add reliable sources to the many characters on there. However, I feel it would be too much work for me to add all these citations alone, as there are currently 219 citation needed tags on the page. And since hundreds visit it every day, I'd say it would be better to add these citations and clean-up the page sooner rather than later. I know there is no deadline to add citations, but some of those citation needed notices have been there for a few years and have not been remedied. Would anyone on here like to help by adding some citations to the page? Past collaboration on adding citations to LGBTQ pages has been successful, and I am hopeful it would be helpful in this case as well. If this isn't the right place to post this, let me know. It would be great to have this page improved by the end of this year. Historyday01 (talk) 21:34, 14 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

LGBT Rights in the United States Taskforce Proposal[edit]

There's a lot of anti-LGBT legislation that has been or is being introduced across the United States, yet the "LGBT rights in <State>" articles are often woefully lagging. I think it would be prudent to create a taskforce with a centralized page linking to the articles were people can self-assign to one or more states, so we can keep track of it all, see where work is needed, and split the workload. I'm thinking similar to WP:CANLGBT but with a table format with each row linking to the state, saying what may need to be done, and listing those who've assigned themselves. Does anyone else think this is a good idea or have ideas for implementation? Would anyone object if I just went ahead a created a page for it?

Sure, go ahead. That sounds like a good idea. Historyday01 (talk) 21:04, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Went ahead and created WP:USALGBT, anybody interested please feel free to join and assign yourself a state! Currently nearly all of them are marked as needing review TheTranarchist ⚧ Ⓐ (talk) 22:02, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've added the group page to my watchlist. Would love to see an active collaboration here and invite others to join. ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:18, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is a great idea. I would like to join this taskforce! :)
