LGBT guide on safe, productive and successful business travel

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

lgbt business travel guideMarriott International, IBM, and the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce present a business travel guide for lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender (LGBT) professionals.

While the U.S. and many societies are making real progress to achieve LGBT equality and inclusion under law, the fact is that more than 76 countries today still criminalize homosexuality.

The good news is that LGBT travelers – for the first time – may count on expert resources at their fingertips to guide them on ways to stay safe, productive and successful when navigating unfamiliar and uncertain destinations. These resources can now be found just a click away in a new mobile, interactive publication called The LGBT Guide to Business Travel, published by ManAboutWorld.

The LGBT Guide to Business Travel helps address their questions and concerns:

“Am I at risk simply because I’m gay?”

“Should I discuss my trip with HR?”

“Can I bring my HIV meds with me?”

“How do I change the subject when colleagues ask about my family?”

“How can I connect with the locals without putting myself or them at risk?”

These questions and dozens more are addressed with a wide range of trusted resources – all accessible at your fingertips. From the U.S. State Department to Scruff, the Guide connects travelers with up to date information about laws, cultural customs, business etiquette and real world best practices from seasoned global travelers.

The mobile LGBT Guide to Business Travel was made possible through support from Marriott International and IBM, and sponsored also by the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. Their generous contributions make the Guide available for free download.
