Frat bros for trans rights!
Brothers at the Emerson College chapter of Phi Alpha Tau, the nation’s oldest professional communicative arts fraternity, have started a campaign to help finance female-to-male top surgery for one of their transgender brothers.
I know. I know. I know.
Anyone who has watched "Animal House" (or even casually scanned Katie J.M. Baker's reporting on Greek life over at Jezebel) knows that "trans-inclusive" and "frat culture" aren't concepts generally uttered in the same sentence. And yet, here we are. Or rather, here they are, the brothers of Phi Alpha Tau, working to not only raise money for Visual & Media Arts sophomore Donnie Collins' top surgery, but building a personal, relatable campaign to raise awareness about transgender rights and the many health insurance-induced hurdles to accessing hormone therapy and surgery.
