    Nonbinary Wiki:Requested articles about people

    My philosophy/personal guidelines on creating people articles:[edit | edit source]

    • Don't mention previous names (deadnames)
    • Pronoun choice can change over time, so rely on the most recent indication from the individual themself whenever possible.
      • E.g. on Lachlan Watson there is an interview from March 2019 where Lachlan says "I use he/him or they/them pronouns". However, their Instagram bio only lists they/them, and the account is frequently posted to, so these are presumably the most current pronouns.
    • Cite their gender from their own words as much as possible, not reporter's words.
      • E.g. if the headline says "Get To Know Genderfluid Artist Joe Schmo" the reporter or editor may be incorrectly using "genderfluid" to mean androgynous or GNC or "nonbinary in general". Or it may be a misunderstanding/misreporting, as in the case of Billy Dee Williams.
    • Try to avoid using "identifies as" since it has a slight implication that "well they could be misguided/confused".
      • Exception for past labels the person has stated they no longer use. E.g. "They used to identify as a gay man but since then realized they are pansexual and agender."
    • Don't mention their birth assignment.
    • Avoid saying what procedures/etc they have or have not done for transition, unless they are really open about it, then it could be tastefully mentioned e.g. Genesis Breyer P-Orridge.
    • Don't need to mention what gender marker is on their documents, unless they are famous for this, e.g. Shige Sakurai made headlines for getting the first X driver's license in the USA.

    For creating articles in general:

    • Use an archiving service on webpages you reference. Especially when citing Tumblr/Twitter, as users are prone to changing URLs or having their accounts deleted. Ex. is heavily cited across NBWiki and no longer exists; almost nothing of their content is archived.
    • If you have any feedback on these, feel free to drop a note on my talk page.
