Community and technical colleges in Washington State will be among the first in the country to track students' sexual orientation, KUOW reports:

Laura McDowell, spokeswoman for Washington State Board of Community & Technical Colleges, said it was students who proposed the colleges start tracking the data.

"The idea was that colleges could better serve this population of students if they could actually help identify how many people in the school are in that category, and track their academic success, and see whether they needed any sort of polices or programs that would help them succeed in schools," McDowell said.

Under the sexual orientation category, students can identify as bisexual, gay, lesbian, queer, or straight/heterosexual. For gender identity, students can select from feminine, masculine, androgynous, gender-neutral, or transgender.
