Test Your Knowledge On The LGBT Community

Thank you for taking this survey! There are only 15 questions (including a few freebies like what school do you attend) and it should only take 5-10 minutes of your time. For the purpose of this survey, an "ally" is an individual who takes action to promote LGBT inclusion, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Note that survey results will only be reported in the aggregate with your LGBT club leaders.
