Event Entry Help
We welcome all LGBTQ+ event organizers to submit their LGBTQ-centric events. However, since our target demographic is typically patrons of LGBTQ+ nightlife, we assume all events are 21+ (or 18+ where consumption laws differ). If your event is NOT 21+, please specify in the description.
Due to our original specific focus on nightlife, our current date and time configuration systems may not be optimal for other non-nightlife related events. If your event does not seem compatible with our current system (which is slowly evolving), you can reach out to us directly and we can figure something out.
To prevent spam and other bad actors, all events are subject to approval from an admin. We reserve the right to reject any submission with no notice.
What KikiPedia Venues Means
In step 1, you will see 2 tabs. "Search Venues" and "Add New Venue". Search Venues allows you to look up your venue from all the venues currently in KikiPedia- both actively listed and hidden as event-only venues.
The "Add New Venue" feature allows you to look up a venue that may not already be on our site using the Google Maps Location Search. If we have the venue in our system, it will automatically match it for us. However, if it is not already in our system, it will take some time for us to add it and bring the venue listing up to snuff before we can approve the event.
What Does "Event-Only Venue" Mean?

Try not using Safari, or updating your Mac OS or iOS to the latest version (if your device even supports it). Historically, Apple does not do a good job of supporting and implementing widely-accepted standards. Try Firefox, Opera, or Chrome.
Recurring, One-Time, and Multi-Date
The recurring event tab allows you to set your event to recur weekly, monthly, or semi-monthly.
We support all typical patterns such as "Every Saturday" and "The First Friday of the Month". We also support semi-monthly patterns for events that happen twice a month, such as on the First and Third or Second and Fourth instance of a day of week. We also recently added in support for the Fifth instance of a day of week in a month, which will only happen on certain months that have 5 instances of a day of week.
Every other week events are supported as well, and alternate based on their start date. If you have an event that behaves like this, please link it to your email address so you can keep it updated if you need to skip a week or change the repeat cycle.
Multi-Date events allow you to specify multiple dates for your events, which is useful for events, competitions, and drag shows that may happen on multiple dates, but not actually be regularly recurring. Note: At the moment, we do not yet support different start and end times for each date.
One-Time events are automatically deactivated once they end. If you include your email address, you can always go into our management portal, update, and reactivate the event to a new date if it is going to happen again.
Start and End Times
For events on KikiPedia, we assume that if the end time for an event is earlier than the start time, the end time is the next day. IE: if the date is March 8th, and the start time is 8PM, entering an end time of 2AM will make the system assume that you mean 2AM on March 9th.
We do not currently support full-day events.
My Date/Time is Missing or Invalid
Are you on an old version of Mac OS Safari? Since Apple tends to drags its feet in supporting non-proprietary standards, Safari did not support date, time, and datetime inputs until fairly recently. Try another browser such as Firefox.
My Event Is One-Time Now, But Might Be Regular In The Future
How we use your email
If you are an event organizer or promoter who is submitting your event to our site, we encourage you to include your email address with your submission. By doing so, you consent to allowing Kikipedia to contact you about your submission. Including your email address will allow us to notify you upon approval of your event, reach out for clarifications, and to make changes to your event using KikiPedia's Management Portal.
What If It's Not *My* Event
Including your email essentially makes you an owner of the event on KikiPedia. If the event is not your own, do not feel obligated to include your email.
Instead, you can leave any other notes or methods for follow-up correspondence in the "Notes for Admins" field, right before the submit button.
Your email address is encrypted and stored securely. It is never publicly visible on any KikiPedia page, and can only be seen by KikiPedia administrators. KikiPedia does not sell or share users' email addresses with any third party.
