FCverse - India's LGBTQ Metaverse

About the Event

In celebration of Pride Month, Point of View and First Contact are coming together to host an event that encourages the archiving of queer knowledge, by queer people. Wikipedia is one of the most visited websites in the world, and it's a go-to source for information on countless topics. However, many important subjects, especially those related to LGBTQIA+ issues and history, are underrepresented or incomplete. By editing Wikipedia, we can help ensure that the stories and contributions of LGBTQIA+ individuals live on in their true form. Plus, editing Wikipedia is easy, fun, and a great way to learn more about topics you're passionate about!

Come, chat, edit, and hang with us:

Date: 29 June 2024 Time: 2 to 6 PM IST Location: First Contact Metaverse

Here’s what you can expect:

  1. A welcoming environment to learn about editing Wikipedia and contribute to LGBTQIA+ movements, concepts and figures
  2. Guidance and support from other Wikipedia editors to help you create and improve articles
  3. Opportunities to meet, chat and collaborate with like minded folks and share knowledge about important queer issues and history
  4. Exciting games on the metaverse!

Here are the topics we will explore together:

  1. Legal Landmarks for LGBTQ+ Rights in India
  2. Drag Culture In India
  3. People and organizations at the forefront of queer movements in South Asia

Here’s how you can join us:

  1. Create a Wikipedia Account: If you don't have one, sign up here. It takes less than a minute (pick fun usernames!)
  2. Register on the First Contact website: FC's 2 min verification process helps FC keep the space safe for LGBTQ folx and allies.
  3. Party with us in the metaverse: Once you’ve registered, you’ll be redirected to the metaverse. Please use the password on the screen at the time of entry.

Let's come together to spotlight queer knowledge, celebrate our movements, and have a blast in the metaverse! See you soon.
