Comments (primary residence)

"My fraternity has no problem with anyone in the lgbtq community, we have had and do have openly gay brothers, and we're just glad they're happy. Gay jokes happen, justlike any other jokes. We joke about my big nose, or the brazilian's funny accent, but we know our limits and would never make someone uncomfortable."

"During rush, it became known to the house that one of our favorite freshman was gay. I thought this might have caused quite a commotion, but I was amazed when everyone was open minded and stood behind this freshman. It made me proud to associate myself with the house."

Comments (secondary residence)

"I believe that both MacGregor and Chi Phi are incredibly LGBTQ friendly. I have never felt threatened or uncomfortable at either due to my sexuality."

"Knowing that identifying as gay would be a problem for certain fraternities, I avoided most. However, before pledging Chi Phi, I made it known that I am a gay man and was still granted a bid with unanimous approval. To this day, my fraternity Brothers accept me, mind their language around me, and are open to my attempts to make the fraternity LGBTQ friendly. I stand by my decision to become part of my Fraternity and know that I am accepted there."
