Students who Identify as LGBTQI+

We recognize that being a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender student abroad can present unique challenges and opportunities in exploring a new culture. For information about LGBTQI+ resources and organizations in each abroad location, check out IES Country-Specific Diversity Resources and visit the U.S. Department of State's LGBTI Travel Information.  Another great resource covering LGBTQI+ issues related to study abroad is the NAFSA Rainbow Special Interest Group age hosted by Indiana University, an IES Abroad member school. This page has information about what to expect when you go abroad, other LGBTQI+ students’ experiences, and resources available in the U.S.
