Have you returned from the trip of a lifetime and want to share your experience with others? Are you a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer individual who has useful tips, tricks, or special interests that will inspire people to hit the road? If so, we’d love you to be a special speaker for our newly introduced LGBTQ Travel Workshop to be hosted at the hostel. Presentations are free and open to the public, helping educate travelers about the benefits of travel and how to best travel as an LGBTQ-identifying person. HI USA offers a variety of travel workshops that range from Women Traveling Solo 101 to Backpacking Southeast Asia on a Shoestring. LGBTQ Travel 101 is the latest for our travel workshop series that focuses on empowering travelers of all communities to go out and explore confidently, affordably and safely. Speakers will work with the Hostelling International USA Community Engagement Manager to:
Create a brief one paragraph description of your workshop that captures the essence of your travels and experiences
Build an interactive presentation with a slide show, food or anything you think helps the presentation resonate with attendees
Deliver presentation to up to 30 people, including questions from the audience.
Workshops are held at either the Boston or New York Hostels, or can be presented remotely at one of our partner sites. Presenters are welcome to create unique presentations of their own, or incorporate additional elements that will be useful. Sample presentations and general presentation tips are provided to all prospective travel presenters.
Supporting our Mission:
The travel workshop presenter, through savvy travel tips and cultural learning recommendations, helps inspires a genuine understanding of people, places and cultures for a more tolerant world.
