Template for Preferred pronouns[edit]

There's a new template {{Preferred pronouns}} that is now available for use on Talk pages of biographical articles. It creates a standard Talk-style banner listing the preferred pronouns for the subject of the article. An example can be seen at Talk:Karin Tidbeck. Please suggest any desired changes or improvements to the template at its talk page, Template talk:Preferred pronouns. Thanks, Mathglot (talk) 06:45, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for this! I just updated the Dana Terrace and Molly Ostertag pages. How should I do the entry for Noelle Stevenson when she uses any pronouns? Historyday01 (talk) 02:00, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

RfC on Chopin and sexuality[edit]

Please participate at Talk:Frédéric Chopin#RFC: Chopin and Sexuality. --Francis Schonken (talk) 12:39, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

Nico Tortorella and they/them pronouns[edit]

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons/Noticeboard regarding repeated removal of they/them pronouns from a BLP subject article. The thread is Nico Tortorella. The discussion is about the topic Nico Tortorella. Thank you. Joeyconnick (talk) 07:28, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

Asking for help on new pages[edit]

So, I decided to reorganize those history pages (it begins with this one) I created earlier this year and I created four new ones:

The names of the pages are not set in stone, of course, and I'd love to expand them, if possible. I know I don't have every series on there, so I'd appreciate your comments, feedback, and suggestions. Thanks and Happy New Year (almost)! --Historyday01 (talk) 21:26, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

To other editors: please see discussion at the TV project. Kingsif (talk) 12:58, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2021 January 7#LGBT academics[edit]

Under Category:LGBT people by occupation.

Is this notable and defining needing its own categorization intersection? Or should the whole tree be tossed, and this is the first segment to be discussed?
William Allen Simpson (talk) 11:14, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

I think its notable enough and I commented as such. I don't understand why the OP didn't try proposing a category for non-binary academics. That would be more constructive than deleting all the category for LGBT academics outright... --Historyday01 (talk) 14:06, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Nick Carter[edit]

There's been an editwar simmering for several weeks between anonymous IPs over whether Nick Carter (musician) should be categorized as LGBT or not. I've temporarily semi-protected the article, and am requesting comment at Talk:Nick Carter (musician). Bearcat (talk) 16:26, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Sure, I'll comment there. I would say that if there aren't reliable sources that say if Nick Carter is LGBT, then he shouldn't be added to that category. That would be my contention off the bat. --Historyday01 (talk) 17:01, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

LGB Alliance[edit]

Dear all

I recently started an article for LGB Alliance, a transphobic hate group working in the UK, US and Ireland. I'd really appreciate it if you could keep an eye on it for vandalism, the group is very active on social media and may encourage their followers to vandalise the page. Also anything you could add to the article would be really appreciated.

Thanks very much

This article has since (quite correctly) been moved to Draft:LGB Alliance to work on the POV issues. It must be compliant with WP policy before it could me moved back into main space. Newimpartial (talk) 12:46, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Rachel Levine, United States government official[edit]

The United States is in the midst of a party transition right now and many people are in tension.

Relevant to WikiProject LGBT, the incoming president has appointed Levine to a high ranking position. Levine is trans, and because of this, her article is the target of vandalism and hate on the talk page.

I am unclear on Wikipedia best practices for continued requests for all the usual hatemongering, including requests for using name and pronouns assigned at birth. If any users have interest and capacity to address a higher profile case of LGBT harassment then this one might be that. Blue Rasberry (talk) 16:14, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
