The following questionnaire is intended to discover preliminary baseline data concerning the extent to which national and international sport organizations have addressed policy relating to the participation of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered persons in their programs. All data will be completely confidential as to source. Any information published will be geographic/zonal summaries so that no individual organization is identified. This project is conducted to aid in advancing the mission of Beyond Sport.
