DES MOINES, Washington (KING) -- Are you gay, lesbian, or straight? That is just one new question community colleges will ask enrolling students this fall.

The new registration form will make Washington state the first system of community and technical colleges in the country to track these demographics.

Students filling out their registration form for the fall will see two new questions: What is your sexual orientation? What is your gender identity?

They can choose from six different options for each question or they can choose "prefer not to answer."
