There are things every college student needs to know, like where to register for classes and buy books, or where to get the best food on campus.

If you’re a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex (LGBTI) student coming to the U.S., there’s something else you might want to know: where to find friends and resources to make your experience as memorable as possible.

The good news: “There is space for every speck in the spectrum on an American campus,” says Eissa Saeed, a media student at The George Washington University, originally from Pakistan. “To have that and the allowance to be, to learn and to experience as your true self is quite a luxury.”

What do you want to know about LGBTI campus life? Get answers in a March 3 interactive webchat with Saeed and other LGBTI students from around the world who are studying in the U.S.:

  • Krylios Clarke Jr. (Jamaica), journalism student and podcast host at Howard University.
  • Siobhán McGuirk (United Kingdom), doctoral candidate at American University.
  • Nachale (formerly Sitthiphan) “Hua” Boonyapisomparn (Thailand), transgender activist and Trinity Washington University student.


They’ll be online March 3 at 10:00 a.m. EST (15:00 UTC). Tweet your questions in advance by tagging @EdUSAUpdates or using the hashtag #StudyintheUSA.
