Title: LGBT+ and Friendliness - What Do We Need and How Do We Do
I started to edit Wikipedia since 2006. I started to organize women in STEM since 2011, founded Women in FOSS in Taiwan (2011), PyLadies Taiwan (203). In 2015, with the help of Wikimedia Taiwan Chapter, I co-founded WikiWomen Taiwan. Now I’m an executive board member of our local Wikimedia Taiwan Chapter. I attended WikiWomenCamp 2017, Mexico, Wikimedia Conference 2018 in Berlin, and ESEAP Conference 2022 in Sydney. I’m also an active member of our local LGBTQ+ community. Besides that, I’m a senior web developer and an active member in our local free and open source community.

Abstract & description[edit source]
To develop knowledge and awareness about friendliness, especially for the LGBT+ community.
Do you feel comfortable here? Or not? Why do you feel comfortable here? Or not comfortable here? If we want to make this place more comfortable, attracting more gay, lesbian, bi, transgender, non-binary, etc, what do we need? I hope to develop some shared knowledge and awareness on the idea of “friendliness”, with skills that we can practice back in our local community.
