LGBTQ+ nys School Climate survey 2021

We need to know how LGBTQ+ students in New York are impacted by the pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated many communities of people, in some ways we don't even know yet.

We know that LGBTQ+ students are especially vulnerable in times of social and political upheaval and public health crises. We -- attorneys and advocates who serve, support, protect, and fight for LGBTQ+ students -- want to know what that looks like in the education setting.

That's where you come in.


Who should take this survey?

K-12 Students

College + Grad Students

Parents / Guardians


GSA Coordinators

School Counselors

School Administrators

Providers (e.g., social worker, therapist, doctor, etc.)


Survey Goals

To better understand the school climate across New York State for LGBTQ+ students in a pandemic-time learning environments. Specifically, we will ask about:


  • Demographic information

  • Your school environment + in-school resources

  • Harassment / bullying in school

  • Disciplinary actions by the school

  • Your home environment

  • Resources you know of outside of schools that are supporting LGBTQ+ students during the pandemic





This survey will take approximately 20–30 minutes.

How the data will be used

All responses will remain completely anonymous. The data will be analyzed collectively as a whole, and we will not evaluate individual answers. Almost every question is completely optional.

The data we collect and analyze will help policy advocates, attorneys, school administrators, and various providers to better serve and support LGBTQ+ students across New York.
