Increasing milestone goals?Edit

Hi folx! Last month I posted a question on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject LGBT studies/progression about increasing milestone goals. Please see and reply if interested. Thank you! –Vipz (talk) 19:23, 2 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  Done, good job everyone on absolutely smashing previous goals! Goals were updated: from 400 to 800 good articles and from 100 to 125 featured articles. Here towards much more coverage of LGBT+ on Wikipedia! –Vipz (talk) 15:48, 15 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Taylor ParsonsEdit

This Australian rock climbing LGBT+ BLP is on my watchlist (I focus on climbing articles) and I notice that a new editor - who I think is the subject - has edited the BLP to take out all reference to their past name (they used to be quite a notable rock climber pre their transition). What is the right thing to do here - their notability is mostly attached to their past name, however, obviously I don't want to revert these edits if it is not appropriate in this context. What is the right thing to do? thanks. Aszx5000 (talk) 17:12, 9 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The standard seems to be that, when and only when the person was famous before transition, it is acceptable to make a note in the lede paragraphs to the dead name, and then use the new name throughout the article. For references, the given title should always be used. Exceptions should be made judiciously, such as when the person received awards under their dead name and is likely to be listed in databases and other materials under that name. I would hold up the article for Alexander James Adams as an example. TechBear | Talk | Contributions 17:27, 9 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Correct; see MOS:GENDERID for more details. Funcrunch (talk) 19:53, 9 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
So am I right in saying that we should restore her deadname, as that is what she was notable for (per Alexander James Adams and MOS:GENDERID), somewhere in the lede, and in bold (but not as the initial name)? thanks. Aszx5000 (talk) 21:47, 9 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have - belatedly - fixed the BLP article for MOS:GENDERID (per above), and I have also fixed - I think - some of the pronoun issues from earlier. However, if I have gotten this wrong, please adjust as needed. Aszx5000 (talk) 15:40, 25 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WikiProject Drag?Edit

If I were to create WikiProject Drag, would you join? I should note, Wikipedia has WikiProject Drag Race, but this project seeks to improve coverage of one specific drag franchise. WikiProject Drag would apply to a much larger collection of entries.

I considered starting a task force of WikiProject LGBT studies dedicated to drag, but Wikipedia:WikiProject LGBT studies/Drag task force is a lot less catchy than Wikipedia:WikiProject Drag. I don't want to start yet another project page if there's limited activity and interest, so I'll get the ball rolling if ten people indicate interest in joining.

If not, all good. Thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 23:04, 10 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I did mention it before on WP:Drag Race, of "why not represent other franchises?" or create a WikiProject Drag; though I will be interested in joining! ☺️ — JuanGLP (talk + contribs) 00:47, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@JuanGLP Was worth asking, but clearly there's not much interest in creating a separate WikiProject. That's ok! See you over at WikiProject Drag Race. ---Another Believer (Talk) 16:07, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yeah, sounds like many editors aren't really active in this talk page, though we tried. 🤷 — JuanGLP (talk/contribs) 15:18, 30 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Gender-affirming care classified in with "mutilation" on articleEdit

There was a recent discussion about this... but the article title of genital modification and mutilation implies that everything within the article is a form of genital mutilation.

It also implies that gender-affirming care is mutilation. Am I the only one who sees the problem with the article's title and wording? PistachoCash (talk) 14:39, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oh, heck. That is an issue. I'll look into it. Thank you for shedding light on this! Atomic putty? Rien! 15:33, 25 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Update: it looks as though this was discussed on the article's talk page, and the consensus was to keep the name. However, it *does* appear that previous versions of the article incorrectly classified voluntary sexual reassignment surgery as mutilation, so this page might need some additional oversight. As of now, I see no glaring issues. Atomic putty? Rien! 15:39, 25 May 2023 (UTC) ^-^Reply[reply]
The RM was scarcely attended and poorly closed. I think the article title is still potentially problematic. Why are the two combined? Couldn't we have one article on genital modification/enhancement, and one article on genital mutilation? Surely the two are independently notable. ––FormalDude (talk) 15:43, 25 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

List of rainbow crossingsEdit

I started a spin off from Rainbow crossing as someone on the talk page suggested we spin off a list as more and more crossings have been installed since the original article that talked more about the movement and history. Please help fill in the List of rainbow crossings with other known cited crossings (and images where possible).

Also, sadly someone immediately listed it at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of rainbow crossings, so you might want to take a look at the discussion. Raladic (talk) 15:27, 15 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Reassessment for Drag DenEdit

With a second season being announced for casting, I have forked out info for for the first season, on its own seperate page. The main article was classified as a stub and now it needs to be reassess, since sources and info were moved. Thank you. — JuanGLP (talk/contribs) 15:09, 30 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Georgina Beyer transsexual vs transgenderEdit

I've started a thread on Georgina Beyer's talk. In her life, she identified as transsexual, not transgender. However, her article only reflects her identity as transgender (which is somewhat correct, if we assume trannsexual to be under the transgender umbrella). However, I'd like to see her trannsexual identity better reflected on her wiki. If anyone has any thoughts, I'd encourage you to share your thoughts on that thread.
