Gender Neutral Lambda Psi Omega is unlike any other fraternity or sorority at Illinois State Univeristy...different enough that the organizers created a new word to describe it: "frarority." The gender neutral, queer frarority is unique at ISU and one of only a couple nationwide. Tomas Bolivar is one of the organizers. He tells WGLT's Mike McCurdy creating a new kind of greek organization was necessary to create a strong sense of community and family for members who may have faced rejection because of their sexuality.

Bolivar was speaking with WGLT's Mike McCurdy. Coverage of LGBT issues during Sound Ideas is in partnership with the Prairie Pride Coalition. Learn more at their website.
