Who is preserving LGBTQ+ history?

Monday, June 17, 10 am Pacific / 1 pm Eastern

As LGBTQ+ people continue to fight for the right to express themselves freely around the world, it’s as important as ever to document their stories for present and future generations – which is exactly what thousands of LGBTQ+ people, scholars, students, and other allies are doing on Wikipedia. Join us online to learn about this crucial work and how you can contribute to the preservation of LGBTQ+ history on the world’s free encyclopedia.

This event is not just a lecture; we encourage you to engage with our featured faculty and Wikipedia contributors:

  • Dan Royles – Associate Professor of History, Florida International University
  • Dean Allbritton – Associate Professor of Spanish, Colby College
  • Juana Maria Rodriguez – Professor of Ethnic Studies, UC Berkeley
  • Margaret Galvan – Assistant Professor of Visual Rhetoric, University of Florida
  • Andrés Vera – moderator, Equity Outreach Coordinator, Wiki Education
