Normally, the formation of a new fraternity chapter at a school is exciting, but not revolutionary.
When you’re trying to form a chapter of a gay fraternity at a huge state university in the heart of Texas, that is a little more groundbreaking.
Here’s the article: “Students working to grow UT’s first gay fraternity.”
Delta Lambda Phi is a fine organization, and I am proud to currently serve as a community advisor for one of its chapters. Considering there is only one other chapter in all of Texas, what these young gentlemen are doing at UT Austin is both courageous and commendable. If you know of a DLP chapter at a university near you, do your best to cheer them on! They are a wonderful support structure for young gay and bisexual men on college campuses.

I get a lot of news about LGBT issues in higher education, so expect a lot of little tidbits like these.
