National Conference For LGBT Fraternity And Sorority Members Announced

OutGreek_logoFrat brothers are usually known for partying, but they’ll be taking a more serious tone at Out & Greek, an anuual conference aimed at helping LGBT and allied members of the Greek system network and learn strategies to create safer and more inclusive fraternity and sorority communities.

Held in partnership with the Association of Fraternal Leadership Values (AFLV),  Out & Greek takes place April 11-14 Costa Mesa, California, as part of an ongoing relationship between AFLV and the Campus Pride, the national LGBT college advocacy group.

      Still am in a veterinary fraternity and have a great time with my brothers. Great group of guys. I’m sure some of them are a little uncomfortable at times but they don’t show it..

      There were three gay brothers who came out in the fraternity I was in from 1967-71. One had been thrown out of another house. There were a couple of guys who didn’t come out, but I think their sexuality was known, and at least one bi guy. We were treated like anyone else. We had a very tolerant chapter, with a number of different races as well. We also had the highest grade point average on campus, and a good representation on Varsity teams. Not all fraternity preconceptions are accurate.
