WikiQueer is a web-based, free-content encyclopedia project, based on an openly editable model, specifically for and by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and ally communities.
In a manner similar to Wikipedia, WikiQueer is written collaboratively by Internet volunteers who write without pay. Anyone with Internet access can write and make changes to WikiQueer articles (except in certain cases where editing is restricted to prevent disruption or vandalism). Users can contribute anonymously, under a pseudonym, or with their real identity, if they choose.
WikiQueer's Global Advisory Board, Content Partners and WikiQueer's parent organization, The Aequalitas Project, oversee the administrative and strategic aspects of WikiQueer. However, all members of the WikiQueer community are encouraged to provide input on the future direction of WikiQueer and take the initiative to create new content or projects!
While there is almost no limit to the amount and types of information that could be made available, there is currently a focus on these major areas:
- Queer Information
If there is a new content area you are interested in developing, you are welcome and encouraged to take the initiative to do so.
WikiQueer was founded by MeatballWiki user GregoryVarnum in 2010. The database and technical structure for WikiQueer was launched on National Coming Out Day, October 11, 2010. After the formal creation of The Aequalitas Project in March 2011, work began on developing WikiQueer. WikiQueer officially began it's soft launch on July 25th, 2011 - with a grand opening coming in the following months.
