Hi, my name is Kevin Huntting and I am the spouse of a Mexican diplomat. My first relocation with my husband (San Francisco to Dallas) was full of excitement, and fear as I uprooted both my professional and personal life to begin this diplomatic journey. This project started as I noticed there was little, if any, information about the experiences of the LGBTQ international community, including diplomats, expats, their spouses, friends or families.
Our focus is to be a resource for this community who are seeking to connect, learn, and share their experiences with other members of the broader LGBTQ community with the goal of positively impacting the lives of those who are on a similar path. We believe the best way to lead healthy lives is by sharing our authentic stories, and making meaningful connections.
LGBTQ Diplomats and expats deal with very specific issues that many individuals will never be faced with like Visa status issues, homophobia, and general day-to-day questions on how to best acclimate yourself to a new country, city, culture, and people.
Our primary focus is to:
- CONNECT. We are a unique community! And, a place where the international foreign service and expat community can connect, share and create positive dialogue.
- INFORM. We offer a fresh perspective on relevant issues impacting this global community.
- INSPIRE. We feature the real personal stories of individuals, couples, spouses, family members, and friends who are a part of this broad community. We hope our stories help inspire others!
