Leeds Central Library, The Portal, 2nd Floor

Calverley Street, Leeds, LS1 3AB

To celebrate LGBT History Month, we’re holding a friendly and practical workshop for people who want to help increase LGBTIQ+ representation within the widely-used website, Wikipedia.

We’ll show you how to create an account and use it to update existing pages on LGBTIQ+ local history, as well as point you in the right direction for any new research you might want to do on the subject. There will also be the chance to find out about the local archiving and oral history project, West Yorkshire Queer Stories, which aims to preserve LGBTIQ+ heritage in the region.
