Get Real on Fraternities and Sororities on LGBT Equality?

Posted By on Wed, Apr 16, 2014 at 12:00 PM

According to the Canada-based Get Real organization, they're "a university-student run non-profit that speaks to high school students about unlearning homophobia and embracing everyone."

And that's cool and all, and the video making its way into our internet hearts is nice, too, but it wasn't that long ago (almost 30 years, when I was in college at the UA), that gay men were getting blackballed from their fraternities based on the frat's founding policies.

Have those policies changed? I'd love to know, because to me, that's better than a video. Or maybe changes in homophobic policy that caused pain to young men on our campus not long ago is a secret—like the handshakes, or maybe they haven't changed much at all.
