Title: Sexual Health Abroad through the LGBTQI+ Lens 

 

Description: 

Empowering students with the necessary tools and resources regarding health, safety, and wellbeing abroad is an essential goal of many offices or institutions’ pre-departure programming. However, students’ sexual health -- particularly the unique issues and concerns of LGBTQI+ identified students -- is often overlooked or perhaps not sufficiently addressed in pre-departure orientations and materials. During this community discussion, participants will learn more about a few of the many sexual health considerations for LGBTQI+ identified student travelers, and discuss the ways in which important topics regarding sexual health can be better incorporated or emphasized in students’ comprehensive pre-departure preparations. Note: This session is designed for participants with an intermediate level of understanding of the LGBTQI+ community and issues.
