Comments (primary residence)

"There are at least 3 gay guys in my fraternity and I'm as close to them as anyone else in the house. I roomed with one of them last semester and he was the best roommate I have ever had. "

"the terms listed above never really come up. not exactly sure why, but it just never really happens. i feel very comfortable being gay in my house. i have pictures of my boyfriend up in my room, everyone is aware of my sexuality, and i have even been on the executive committee of our house for the past four semesters. i have never experienced any discrimination that i was aware of."

"Phi Kappa Sigma does not discriminate based on sexual orientation. Our brotherhood transcends such lowly denominalization."

"Everyone is perfectly fine about these matters. No one really gets offended about these sort of matters and it's basically live and let live while enjoying the fraternal bond we share."

"In our house we are not concerned about sexual orientation. If you're a great guy that's all we care about. "
