My Apologies

Switch to WikiFur-like category hierarchy

I think it will be easier to manage the categories by WikiFur's system. I'm sick of managing so many categories that were imported from their Wikipedia counterparts. --RayneVanDunem 00:17, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

Your input

Problem page

Hi :)

I'm leaving this for you as the most recently active admin here. I've removed a article until it can be fully reviewed (see the deletion log for details). We've had a complaint that it implies the the subject was in a relationship with an underage girl - which obviously could be a serious allegation. Possibly the article could be rewritten to give full sources and remove any speculation?

To be clear, it's not the sexuality that the people emailing are concerned about, but the under-age aspect (they are family of the woman concerned). Please can you have a look at this and see if it can be rewritten or should be left deleted? This isn't Wikipedia of course, but their policies on writing biographies can be useful sometimes:[1].

Emmie, Pop's First Lesbian love song

Ralph, Let's call her Ralph 19:27, August 14, 2011 (UTC)Sannse, Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate the position of Wikipedia. Please thank everyone at Wikipedia for me. To paraphrase, a comment that made it all worth for me. " At 13, I would have considered myself blessed beyond belief to be with someone like Laura Nyro. I have known two other women who had loving long-term relationships that began when they were in their mid-teens and the other woman was in her early thirties." I will consider submitting a bowdlerized verson. The nub of the problem is how to present the phenomenon of the flame/crush relationship, vis-a-vis "Emmie". By it's character, a flame/crush relationship involves an older/younger bonding that is more than mere friendship. I will, notwithstanding, post this on the recommended talk page. Agape. Ralph, Let's call her Ralph 19:10, August 14, 2011 (UTC .

That "At 13" quote (from where? Soul Picnic book?), in and of itself doesn't say to me that Laura Nyro was in a relationship with a teen. Looked at Emmie lyrics at and see no "Mama" in Emmie lyrics. --EarthFurst 15:21, August 17, 2011 (UTC)

Sandbox protocol Emmie, Pop's First Lesbian love song

Ralph, Let's call her Ralph 20:15, August 14, 2011 (UTC)Sannse, et al,

Is there a way that a draft procedure could be set up to encourage others to give advice and comment about resubmitting the Emmie article. The mere claim that "Emme" may be a first is significant in LGBTQ history. e.g. here is a brief example.

Emmie is a track on the 1968 album Eli and the Thirteenth Confession by Laura Nyro released on March 3, 1968. Alanna Nash in her April 25, 1997 music comment "Passion Player",,287629,00.html on touted “Emmie” as “pop’s first lesbian love song.”

Pete Johnson in his June 1968 review of the song in Coast FM & Fine Arts (p.50) commented “There is a momentary shock at hearing a woman romancing another woman…”

Michele Kort in her biography of Laura Nyro, “Soul Picnic” reported on p.60, the Ellen Sander claim about her being the partial inspiration for “Emmie”. Laura’s reply was reputed to have been “…Well, it’s sort of a combination of you and someone else…”

Ari Fox Lauren, a recognized theorist on the music (sans lyrics) of Laura Nyro, is of the opinion, “Emmie” and “Désiree” “are open expressions of same-sex attraction on Laura’s part.”

Would this not be sufficien to post the article. As you can see I need help with conforming the links.

Changed html above into plain text. Article at Emmie (Laura Nyro song).
Sannse said, "As I understand it, it's not the sexuality issue that's upsetting people, it's the allegation of an adult/child relationship." The moderated premise merely listes authorities. It appears that the latest listing by the Dan/Jan Nigro is a gross contradiction. This is an attempt to end run the import of this LGBT project wiki site: namely that "Emmie" was an open expression of female same sexuality rarely heard in the popular music of the day. Ralph, Let's call her Ralph 08:58, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

Re: "Emmie' Laura Nyro Song. I did a resubmission circa August 24, 2011 after the page was deleted. Dan Nigro repersenting the Family added a long introductory justification denying any same-sex theme. On September 2 and today September 13, 2011 I added rebuttals and resource links justifying "Emmie" as an open expression of same-sex attraction.Ralph, Let's call her Ralph 07:35, September 14, 2011 (UTC)

Portuguese HIV/AIDS videos

I just noticed somebody added some Portuguese language HIV/AIDS videos. What's your feeling on this? I don't want to discourage contributors, but we are an English language wiki. I don't know how many Portuguese speakers visit this site. What are your thoughts? -- DragonMage (talk) 16:21, October 1, 2014 (UTC)

LGBT flags category

EarthFur, quoting from your comment section on File:Gay_flag.svg, you said:

Category:LGBT flags . I notice there's also Category:Gay pride flags (make GPF a subcat of Category:LGBT flags ? merge GPF into Category:LGBT flags?

My preference would be to merge Gay Pride flags into LGBT flags. LGBT sounds more inclusive. Also, the GPF category only has two items in it anyway. -- DragonMage (talk) 16:18, January 16, 2015 (UTC)

Trey Songz

would you do something on trey songz as i heard he came out not to long ago? - 20:10, November 21, 2015 (UTC)

Red links everywhere :o

I was going to make some edits to Gay pride and I noticed a LOT of redlinks there. I then saw them all over this wiki. It appears to be a result of copying lots of content from Wikipedia, which includes links to content on Wikipedia that doesn't exist here.

What do you think of removing those links entirely? Or maybe removing some selectively, and leaving a few in place where there should be a page here too? OR I could leave the links in place, but point them to the Wikipedia page (so instead of a red link to Pride, it would point to Wikipedia:Pride.

...or I could just leave them all alone when I make my edits. :P What do you think? Advice? Has this been discussed before somewhere? Thanks!

Template Name Changes

EarthFurst, why did you rename a couple of template pages with LGBT Info as a prefix? It's kinda redundant to have LGBT Info in the front of the name. Also, templates are always named Template:template name. DragonMage (talk) 13:53, October 16, 2016 (UTC)

Hey EarthFur,

I am one of the admins of the german lgbt* wiki and today I came across your wiki. I wanted to add an interlanguage link to one of your articles but noticed that we do not have an interlanguge link connection between our two wikis enabled yet. So would you like me to ask a staff member to add this connection?

Best regards

Hey, I was wondering if I could help out on this wiki, I recently came out, and this looks like the right place for me.

Alternative Rock Album by Edward Hanshaw

How can I place an ad in your website about my New Alternative Rock Album? I am a gay man from Pennsylvania and I'm looking to reach out to more of my gay brothers and sisters about my new Album. It is Called Climb'n Boulders And is currently found online on iTunes, Spotify, Google play, Amazon, Apple Music and YouTube. I'm not sure how to have it mentioned on your website? So maybe someone can tell me how this process works? I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much, My name is Edward Hanshaw Also know as Echordz

The term 'transgendered' on the Main page should be 'transgender'

HI, I hope I am talking to someone that can make this edit on behalf of transgender folks.

On the Main page: Welcome to the LGBT Project, a website which aims at providing factual, unbiased and down-to-earth information about lesbiangaybisexual and transgendered people.

The term 'transgendered' is not the proper term, it should read 'lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.'


Number One: Understand what “transgender” means.

A transgender person, not “transgendered,” is someone whose sex assigned at birth is different from who they know they are on the inside. It includes people who have medically transitioned to align their internal knowledge of their gender with their physical presentation. But it also includes those who have not or will not medically transition as well as non-binary or gender-expansive people who do not exclusively identify as male or female. Preferred usage includes “transgender people,” “transgender person,” “transgender woman,” “transgender man,” “trans people,” “trans person,” “trans woman,” “trans man,” “non-binary people” or “non-binary person.”

If you cannot make the update to the Main page, please let someone else do it.

Thank you,

Fake or offencive pages, deletion needed.

These pages have been here for over a year. Please do your job.!_Trump2020

Helpful tip- Hire more admins to keep this wiki alive. I have noticed many users have created troll pages or posts.

-Sincerely, ESBirdnerd


I have noticed you have admins missing. Please add more admins. For example, me.
