Hello everyone,

We have our next LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group Call on Tuesday, July 26, 2022 at 9am PT / 12pm ET / 16:00 UTC (Time zone converter<https://zonestamp.toolforge.org/1658851251>). Clair Kronk, Crystal Clements, and Alex Jung will be providing an update to Wikidata/gender discussions from our February 8 call<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1n4FkfAUUHIMC7BO10ACVLhVWbvu4-2ztrbKWXltIVOE/edit> with a focus on pronouns. Clair will introduce us to LGBTdb, a Wikibase instance created for and by LGBTQIA+ people from which we draw insight in Wikidata-related discussions. We also hope to discuss current pain points and share action items for future collaboration. Input from community members who are familiar with lexicographical data would be greatly appreciated.

The call details are below. Everyone is welcome to attend. If you aren't able to attend, the meetings are recorded and meeting notes are available on Google Drive<https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1JwTulCABs0TkGQDVSnYbIYEb7bC-j4-n>. To receive notifications about upcoming calls and meeting notes you can subscribe to the ld4-wikidata Google Group<https://groups.google.com/d/forum/ld4-wikidata>.

The LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group is associated with the LD4 Community and investigates how libraries can contribute to and better integrate library metadata with Wikidata to improve access to library resources on the web. The Affinity Group calls provide an informal space to share information and learn more about Wikidata.
