Frat Decides To Include Transgender Members


OK, so I might be wrong, but as a Brit, I thought fraternities were all about keg stands and borderline illegal hazing rituals.

So to hear one brotherhood is bucking the trend is a breath of fresh air.

The Chi Phi Fraternity, founded at Princeton University, recently announced it's changing its membership policy to be more inclusive of transgender students.

Sam Borchart, the undergraduate chairman of the frat's Committee of Membership, said in a statement,

The initiative was led by undergraduate members at the frat's 151st congress, and the change has now been made official.

Yay progress!
