    What kind of volunteer work do you do?
    Are you out when you do it?
    Are the staff, volunteers or clients predominantly LGBT?

    Here's a suggestion for formatting replies:

    Type of organization:
    (partial list of examples: Health services, youth education, adult education, senior assistance, religious, environmental protection, LGBT advocacy, political, animal welfare, no organization, ...)

    Type of work:
    (examples: tutoring, deliver meals, answer phones, landscaping, serve on board, ...)

    Are you out to staff and fellow adult volunteers?
    (No/Some/Many)

    Are you out to adult clients?
    (No/Some/Many)

    Are you out to any youth you meet through this work?
    (Examples: no youth involved, college-aged, selected teens, teens and pre-teens)

    Do the staff, volunteers or clients include a high percentage of LGBT folks?
