Millie (short story) up for deletion[edit]

Important author, Katherine Mansfield, particularly of short stories. Lots of sources at Google books. Referencing needs improvement. Only pretended compliance with WP:Before. Nominator says this is "a test case." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 7&6=thirteen (talkcontribs) 1:51, 19 October 2019 (UTC) 7&6=thirteen ()

7&6=thirteen: This kind of message may be considered canvassing (see WP:CANVASSING). Posting notices of deletion discussion to WikiProjects is allowed and even desirable, but they should be done in neutral tone. You should not call others to !vote for one option or the other. This is an example of neutral notice. Best, --MarioGom (talk) 23:05, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
FWIW, I didn’t even read anything but the first few words of the edit summary. So wasn’t swayed one way or another. Gleeanon409 (talk) 23:23, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
I thought that was neutral. And exact. I did not make up the quote. I did not tell anyone what to say or do. I expect them to see what is being done, evaluate the situation, and choose to participate (whichever way) or not. It was light, not a solicitation or canvassing.z
If you don't identify anything or provide context, disembodied listings will not get anyone to think about it, let alone participate or respond. Bringing the process into the light, and out of the shadows, gets more participation by interested editors, of whatever persuasion they may be. And that is a good thing.
I note you availed yourself to add your thoughts at the AFD. Cheers. 7&6=thirteen () 00:27, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

Again fixing pronouns to "she/her: for Rachel McKinnon's entry[edit]

Trans cyclist Rachel McKinnon was referred to in the entry about her as "he." I changed it but I fear given the transphobia in the reaction to Rachel's recent cycling win, that my changes won't stick. Advice? — Preceding unsigned comment added by SamJaneB (talkcontribs) 22:33, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

SamJaneB: If vandalism is frequent and persistent, you can request page protection. --MarioGom (talk) 22:42, 21 October 2019 (UTC)
Actually DanielRigal already did: Wikipedia:Requests for page protection § Rachel McKinnon. --MarioGom (talk) 22:44, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Request for information on WP1.0 web tool[edit]

Hello and greetings from the maintainers of the WP 1.0 Bot! As you may or may not know, we are currently involved in an overhaul of the bot, in order to make it more modern and maintainable. As part of this process, we will be rewriting the web tool that is part of the project. You might have noticed this tool if you click through the links on the project assessment summary tables.

We'd like to collect information on how the current tool is used! How do you yourself and the other maintainers of your project use the web tool? Which of its features do you need? How frequently do you use these features? And what features is the tool missing that would be useful to you? We have collected all of these questions at this Google form where you can leave your response. Walkerma (talk) 04:24, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

WikiProject RuPaul's Drag Race: Collaboration of the Month for November 2019[edit]

I thought this might be a good selection for Collaboration of the Month, considering Aja's recent Tweets about their Wikipedia article and ongoing talk page discussions. Happy editing! ---Another Believer (Talk) 17:13, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

Category:LGBT people[edit]

There is a debate about the parent categories for the category LGBT people. It would be appreciated if more people from the project chimed in with their opinions.★Trekker (talk) 10:06, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

Discussion about including bioqueens in the lead at Drag queen[edit]

There is an ongoing discussion at Talk:Drag queen about whether it is appropriate to acknowledge female drag queens in the lead of the Drag queen article. Further input is welcome and appreciated. Armadillopteryxtalk 19:30, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

Discussion about transgender/transsexual pornography categories[edit]

There is an ongoing discussion here concerning the names of categories for transgender/transsexual pornography and pornographic performers, transgender and transsexual literature and related sub-categories, and transsexual and transgender culture. Bohemian Baltimore (talk) 08:01, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Discussion about gay/gay men's/gay male categories[edit]

There is an ongoing discussion here concerning the naming of categories related to gay men, fictional gay males, and gay pornography. Input and discussion from LGBT studies participants would be useful. Bohemian Baltimore (talk) 08:18, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Nomination of Jordan Evans (politician) for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Jordan Evans (politician) is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jordan Evans (politician) until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. ☆ Bri (talk) 17:54, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Speedy rename proposal for "Gay (male) romance novels" category[edit]

I have proposed that Category:Gay (male) romance novels be speedy renamed to Category:Gay male romance novels, to remove the unnecessary parentheses. I consider this an uncontroversial proposal, but I'm adding a notification here to be safe. Bohemian Baltimore (talk) 00:15, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, Bohemian Baltimore. I support the rename. It looks like for speedy renames that me voicing support is unnecessary, unless there is opposition? = paul2520 (talk) 01:43, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

Renaming discussion for "List of male performers in gay porn films" article[edit]

I have suggested that the article List of male performers in gay porn films be changed to List of male performers in gay pornographic films. Porn is slang and Wikipedia generally uses the term "pornography" for categories and articles, as it does with the main gay pornography article. Adding notice here to alert editors. Bohemian Baltimore (talk) 03:01, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

Renaming discussion for "Gay male sex workers" and "Gay male prostitutes" categories[edit]

There's an ongoing discussion here concerning the renaming of the Gay male sex workers category and its prostitute subcategory. Bohemian Baltimore (talk) 09:20, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

If anyone is looking for a fun topic to work on[edit]

In the AfD for Themyscira (DC Comics) (the island home of Wonder Women) which I withdrawn we have found some sources that discuss this location with relation to LGBT themes and studies. Right now the article has nothing on real world significance, analysis, reception. Perhaps someone here would find it a nice topic to work on. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 02:05, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

Renaming discussion for Category:Transsexual female adult models[edit]

There is a category renaming discussion for Transsexual female adult models going on here. Bohemian Baltimore (talk) 16:05, 17 November 2019 (UTC)

Renaming discussion for Category:Gay (male) television channels[edit]

Proposal here to rename Category:Gay (male) television channels to Category:Gay male television channels to remove the unnecessary parentheses. Bohemian Baltimore (talk) 16:18, 17 November 2019 (UTC)

RuPaul's DragCon UK up for deletion[edit]

Discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/RuPaul's DragCon UK. Gleeanon409 (talk) 14:13, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

Early US transwoman[edit]

My attention was drawn in a comment on Dreamwidth to Hedy Jo Star (born 1920; misspelled Starr in the comment, and also known as Hedy Jo Bucinskas according to this source, which offers some local news stories to start with), a US pioneer to set beside the UK's Roberta Cowell. Anybody? Yngvadottir (talk) 19:08, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
