Join us for an evening of social Wikipedia editing in MoMA's library, during which we will create, update, and improve Wikipedia articles pertaining to LGBT art, culture and history.

Wiki Loves Pride is a global campaign to expand and improve LGBT-related content across all Wikimedia projects, in all languages. The activities of Wiki Loves Pride are focused on June, traditionally a month when lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities around the world celebrate LGBT culture and history. We invite you to participate in a series of edit-a-thons and photography campaigns to help improve Wikipedia's coverage of LGBT-related content.

Also featuring a lightning talk by CUNY students at the La Guardia and Wagner Archives in a project to document local 1980s HIV/AIDS activism on Wikipedia.

All are invited, with no specialized knowledge of the subject or Wikipedia editing experience required. A brief overview of the basics of Wikipedia editing will be given at the start of the edit-a-thon. Please bring your laptop and power cord; we will have library resources, WiFi, and a list of suggested topics on hand.
