About this session

Mobile LGBTQI+ students have to deal with different cultural, legal and attitudinal environments with regard to sexual and gender identity issues. Professionals need to understand the international experiences of LGBTQI+ students. This ‘rainbow’ session will provide advice from pre-departure to re-entry, including country-specific details and available resources. We’ll start from the basics and give you an overview of different definitions and identities.
