This is the meetup for members, friends, and allies of the LGBT+ User Group.
The focus of this meeting is global administration and staying in touch after this Wikimania. The challenge to address is that many Wikimedia contributors around the world do LGBT+ themed projects but it is a challenge for individuals to communicate their outcomes to the global community. Wikimedia LGBT+ has a special problem in the wiki community of coordinating activities among a very diverse group. In this meetup, we will evaluate our communication and talk about some ideas on how to further develop our user group and LGBT+ issues in the Wikiverse.
On Sunday from 14:45-15:30, the follow-up to this meetup will take place: 2019:Diversity/Wiki LGBT+ meetup.
