Comments (primary residence)

"Senior House is wonderful for its stances on acceptance and tolerance, and is made a much more welcoming, strong community because of them. "

"The most accepting and open-minded environment I've experienced at MIT (or ever!). "

"TEP is one of the most LGBTQ-friendly places out there. Quite a few of the brothers have non-normative gender/sexual orientations, and I have never heard an unkind word spoken about them."

"One of my roommates is gay. His boyfriend spends a lot of time at the house, and everyone accepts his relationship without even thinking about it. I find Tau Epsilon Phi to be a place that's extremely friendly to the LGBTQ community."

"tEp is incredibly accepting of all lifestyles."

Comments (secondary residence)

"Senior House and tEp are both completely, totally, %100 accepting of all sexual orientations. "

"I literally received a bag of dicks the first day I arrived at Senior House."

"Senior House is a very accepting environment for just about anyone. In the last couple of years residents of Senior House have even put on events celebrating the acceptance LGBQT identities. I've lived in Senior House for 4 years and I've never felt uncomfortable being open about my sexuality. When I was a freshman there were openly gay upperclassmen who everyone treated equally. It's just never been an issue to be different in Senior House. / / As for my fraternity Tau Epsilon Phi, I've had similar experiences. Everyone is really friendly and accepting to the LGBQT community. "

"Senior House is a dorm that doesn't really care about other people-in a good way. Whatever gender or sexuality you are, it is not a limiting factor to interactions with other people in the house. / At tEp, sexuality and gender are considered an attribute of your personality. People are very open with their sexuality, and there are a few same-sex couples that hang around a lot."

"I've had so much gay sex here"

"Senior house is perhaps the most accepting community for lgbtq people on campus, and TEP is comparable. "
