Back to reality…

Questions to ask yourself when you get back from abroad…

  • How has your concept of yourself as an American changed? As an LGBT person?
  • Were others’ reaction to you as a LGBT person different abroad than in the US? How so – negative, positive, or neutral?
  • Did you feel that going abroad was like a “second coming out?”
  • How did people’s attitude about your sexual identity in the host country differ from those in the US?
  • How did stereotypes about homosexuality differ in the host country from those in the States?
