This session will discuss the significance of race and queer theories to assist LGBTQ students with their study abroad experiences. Trainings that use these theories inform program participants about how to combat marginalization. Educators have a responsibility to facilitate discussions that explore participants’ personal identities through self-examination and meaningful reflection around how their multiple identities play out within their own culture as well as unfamiliar cultural contexts. This session will highlight how to integrate dialogue about privilege, oppression, and multiple identities into predeparture and re-entry orientations.
