I’m sorry, but that isn’t really something you can tell without going to the school. They don’t exactly post those sort of stats on their websites. Personally, my school (IMSA) was really tolerant of LGBTQ students and we even had a very active club and support group. We had quite a few openly gay students and my roommate for one year was a lesbian. People weren’t weird about rooming with LGBTQ students and my school was supportive of making sure students were comfortable in their environment. We had multiple transgender/transsexual students and the teachers were for the most part really good about addressing them with the right name and pronoun and the school let them live in a room they were most comfortable in (ex. f to m living in a female dorm). As for gay guys, I had as many gay guy friends as I have fingers. It doesn’t mean that my school had any more than any other school because it probably didn’t. It was mostly because they felt comfortable being open in their environment so everyone knew their sexuality. When it comes to private schools, you might see less of that openness if there is a religious affiliation for unfortunate obvious reasons. I can’t speak for Culver, but hopefully Katie sees this and can answer that part for you. This is the type of question that if you want to know for a specific school you need to get in touch with a current or former student for that school.
