What is this project about? – Wikipedia for peace: Queer [Edit]
There is a representation problem on Wikipedia. Some groups are better represented than others,. Only 17% of all biographies on English Wikipedia are about women, a lot of content about the Global South is missing. Also queer people – Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Trans* and Inter* people – are underrepresented.

A queer summer camp around learning how to edit Wikipedia
We want to gather young people living in Armenia, Austria, France, Spain, Sweden and Tunisia for a summer camp in Vienna around Wikipedia. We want to edit, translate and add content on Wikipedia around queer people, queer concepts and queer history. And at the same time, we want to cook together, discuss LGBTI+ issues, go hiking and build queer solidarity across countries and continents.

Let‘s make Wikipedia more queer!
Through the articles that we write we hope to increase the visibility of LGBTI+ issues on Wikipedia in different languages and also build knowledge fundaments for international understanding and solidarity between queer people. And we want to attract more young queer people to the project to begin with!

Who can participate?
Be queer, questioning or a strong ally. This project is made by LGBTQIA+ people for LGBTQIA+ people or those who are still on discovery for their sexual or/and gender identity. With this project, we want to create a safer space for all of those of us who identify with being trans*, inter*, non-binary, lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual and queer.

Living in Armenia, Austria, France, Spain, Sweden or Tunisia and be between 18 and 30! We unfortunately cannot make exceptions due to our funding. Be able to participate in the whole period 2-10 August 2022! Due to our funding, we cannot reimburse you for your travels or other expenses if you arrive late to the project or
leave early.
