Flipboard allows us to create a resource guide by compiling articles from various sources and educational materials on a chosen topic or general areas of inquiry and share these in a Flipboard Magazine with students and others interested in the topic. We curate the Magazine, by collecting and sharing relevant information with students such as news about LGBT rights and activism in Uganda, Russia, Korea and other countries as well as coming out stories from LGBT people all over the world. Moreover, readers of the Flipboard Magazine can comment on articles and have conversations with the curators each other, without the requirement of revealing their identity.

The Flipboard Magazine is a virtual space where student affairs professionals and educators support a meaning making process of international LGBTQ students’ sexual and affectional identity and empower them to create a sense of community.
