As we wrote last week, we will host an important Twitter Chat on LGBT Travel Safety Tuesday, Dec 6 starting at 1pm ET. Just log into Twitter and follow #LGBTTravel. Co-hosts and partners include:

LGBT travel safety is among the most important concerns of this large and growing travel segment. Gay travelers tend to travel more than their heterosexual counterparts and travel throughout the entire world, even in the 76+ countries where homosexuality is criminalized. Lesbian travelers are also often concerned about travel safety much like their heterosexual counterparts. Transgender travelers often have concerns that their gender expression may not align with their travel documentation which may cause issues among officials at customs and immigrations.

LGBT people proudly travel the globe but how should we navigate anti-LGBT sentiment at home or around the world? Join experts and fellow travelers for a lively, timely and important discussion about LGBT travel safety, with ManAboutWorld, U.S. Department of State – Bureau of Consular Affairs, the CDC and more!

Follow #LGBTtravel, Tuesday, December 6 1pm ET (12pm CT; 10am PT)

First-Ever Guide to LGBT Business Travel- FREE from ManAboutWorld

26 04 2016
LGBT Business Travel Guide

LGBT Business Travel Guide

Get the first-ever LGBT Business Travel guide from ManAboutWorld. 

We’ve learned from experience that LGBT businesspeople and entrepreneurs face added pressures not only in the workplace but especially when they travel for business — being expected to perform at high levels amid uncertainty.

On April 25, we published the first LGBT Guide to Business Travel. As you know, business travelers have little discretion in where they go for work and for LGBT business travelers this experience can be more than confusing; it can be downright frightening. Imagine traveling to a nation like Uganda — one of 76 countries where LGBT conduct can be criminalized. Something as simple as communicating to your partner on social media raises caution flags. How do you stay connected? Meeting local LGBT people privately may put you at risk of violence or possibly to locals if in public. Who can you trust about your identity whether it is people you meet or your own employer while traveling for business? The Guide covers everything from common questions, such as choosing to be open at work, but also serious concerns about personal safety.
