I'm a trans-man looking into a month-long NOLS course. Is NOLS a safe place for LGBTQ folks?

I am a trans-man researching a NOLS trip and haven't been able to find any information thus far about NOLS philosophy on acceptance of GLBTQ folks. I pass as male and it's not something that I anticipate needing to talk with my team on the trip about. It is likely that I will have to include information about my transition on the health history form, and it is also possible that others on the trip will find out for any number of reasons. Does anyone out there have experience with how NOLS responds to transgender individuals? Will this be a safe place for me?
