We will run a Wikipedia editathon around the theme of LGBT+ in the MENA region (it will also be possible to work on other areas). This includes rights, notable figures, events, but also general LGBT+ topics connected to the region. Participants will be given an introduction to editing on Wikipedia, and then given a list of articles on Wikipedia that require attention. Articles from the English Wikipedia will concentrate on LGBT+ in the MENA region (rights, figures, events) and we will look at how to translate articles into other languages. Participants will then utilise the time in the session to contribute to their chosen article(s), with the help of trainers.
