Do colleges ask for sexuality on their applications and does it have any effect on admission?

I believe there's now a spot on the Common App for applicants to go into more detail on gender identity if they're trans, non-binary, etc., but no there's nothing that asks for your sexual orientation.

And in general, it wouldn't impact you negatively, and having a non-normative gender identity wouldn't have a negative impact either. Most colleges actually want the most diverse classes they can construct, so in some cases it could actually be a small boost.

from what i’ve seen, no they don’t. and i highly doubt it will affect your application. if it did, that would be discrimination, which is very bad.
