This session will address the implications of gender and sexual differences and inequalities in cross-cultural travel. Some of the questions discussed include: How can students practice culturally appropriate behavior related to gender and sexuality? What specific issues confront women, transfolk, and LGB identified students? How can students use cross-cultural experiences to explore different ways in which gender and sexual identities are expressed? How can students see beyond stereotypes about the gender and sexuality of others, particularly as they relate to religion, the body and its treatment/adornment, and notions of oppression and liberation?
