Pride and Privileges: Intersectionality within the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in Tourism, Leisure and Events

In this call for case studies, we are interested in the intersectional experiences of the 2SLGBTQIA+ communities within tourism, leisure, hospitality, and events. As gay activist and commentator Rodney Croome argued, ‘lying just beneath the dazzle of the Mardi Gras and white, inner-city, middle class gay and lesbian life there is injustice, poverty, powerlessness, alienation and a mountain of resentment’.

Due May 31st, 2022

If you are a person or an organisation that has a story to tell or good case material, but not the resources or skills to turn it into a finalised case study, CABI can arrange for your case to be written. Complete the Case Proposal Form and return to

Many schools, universities and consultancies are looking for good case material and are keen to make contact with members of the tourism industry. They may have writers (post-graduate students or consultants) that can turn this raw material into finalised case studies, formatted to CABI’s requirements. We call such a collaboration, facilitated by CABI, ‘The Bridge’.

Tourism Cases is made possible through partnerships, including:

Universities and schools involved in the research and teaching of tourism, events, hospitality, recreation and leisure.

International organisations and consultancies that undertake research, provide advisory services and produce reports on tourism.

Tourism operators of all kinds, including commercial and private partnerships, territorial managers such as National Parks, tourism operator associations and representatives of the industry.

Private and public organisations that provide funding, expertise and other support to tourism development on the ground, working at the national, regional or local level.


We are seeking partners from all the categories above, each sharing their experience according to their mission and expertise. The contributing organisation benefits through greater visibility of the work that they are doing and as supporters of sustainable tourism development.
