Entry: LGBT+ Hidden Histories - A87941695
Author: SashaQ - happysad - U9936370

Here is a linktastic Entry inspired by this month's Create Challenge A87941082 - I'm not sure if it has quite the flavour I was hoping for, so I appreciate your feedback to improve it smiley - biggrin

Soo... hm. I'm not sure in fact.

I have the feeling there is too much general information without giving a 'complete' overview and on the other hand you give examples without telling much about them but mainly post links to other Entries.

Hm....it seems to me that a thesis is arising out of your survey that says, more or less, that pioneers in LGBTQ+ rights have made really important changes in society?

Maybe start with that as a bold statement, and group the survey around recognising these pioneers in their different spheres of activity?

Also, could you maybe frame this entry as a 'guide to the Guide' on the subject? It might serve as a template for more like this in other fields of interest. smiley - smiley

Thanks Tav - you've put into words why this doesn't have the right flavour for my taste. That is very useful feedback for me to ponder smiley - ok

The Entry is currently only 691 words long, so I can afford to add more helpful words.

Here is an article that encapsulates what I had in mind with this Entry http://medium.com/@QSE/the-xx-xy-lie-our-social-construction-of-a-sex-and-gender-binary-4eed1e60e615 However, it is over 5,000 words (classed as a 20-minute read) so I think there is still scope for an h2g2 Entry.

Reading my Entry again, the flavour is still not right for what I had in mind, so I will think about how to add some seasoning...
