International youth work and volunteering are not exempt from stereotypes on gender and sexuality, as all prevailing stereotypes and social constructions in society remain. Jokes about gender and sexualities, gendered stereotypes about labour, leadership, sleeping and bathroom arrangements. The challenge is then to create spaces that contradict and resist these stereotypes and types of behaviour. But not only that, the challenge is to imagine safer spaces: What is a space without discrimination based on gender and sexuality?
