Join us in our mission of education and visibility
The Nonbinary Wiki is a not-for-profit volunteer-powered project, edited and curated by altruistic individuals who give up part of their free time to build the largest collection of resources for and about nonbinary identities.
And we need you.

Proofread

We do not have a professional team of editors and many articles need proofreading. If you don't know where to start, just choose a random article and edit away! Clicking on the Edit button at the top of the page or next to each header will open the Visual Editor. Generally, longer pages have more errors, so you can visit Special:LongPages for a list of all pages ordered by length.

Improve

Many pages could be expanded or updated with more content, and sometimes there are errors. If you ever find an error, we invite you to correct it yourself; it's easier than it seems and your change will be immediately published. On the other hand, if you want to expand a page but don't know which one, you can use one of these lists:

  • Stubs: articles that are very short.
  • Information required: articles that are long but, because of their scope, lack information. If you speak a language which is not English or live somewhere outside the anglophone countries, this category might be of special interest.
  • Incomplete: articles that might be long but lack significant content anyway.

Create

We have 316 articles, but that's not enough! Gender is a wide and complex topic, so there are always new articles that need to be created. If you find a missing articles, we invite you to create it. It's not very difficult, just input the article title in the following text box and click the "Create page" button:


The Visual Editor will open in a new article. Write the content of the article there and save it clicking on the blue Save button. Creating pages is probably the most difficult of these tasks, so if you need assistance do not hesitate to ask for help!

Advanced

If you are feeling adventurous, check out the Maintenance category, where you can see all pages that have been classified in needing some kind of improvement. However, if you are not familiar with how a wiki works, we recommend starting with one of the above tasks.

If you are short on time...

Not everyone has the time to commit to a big project such as this one. If that's your case, here are some things you can do to help us!

  • Follow us on social media and interact with our posts. We are @NonbinaryWiki on Twitter, Tumblr and LGBT.io!
  • Join our Discord community, open to both nonbinary and binary people.
  • If you can afford it, make a donation to support the project. Even small amounts help!


Share your work!

There are few more rewarding things than knowing that your hard work is being useful for many people. One of them is sharing your hard work with the world and your friends! If you have created or edited an article, you can post about it in your social networks. Tag us and you might get a retweet!
