Who Say's Everyone in Texas is Bigotted?

Check out this article from the Houston Chronicle:

UT-Austin students form campus' first gay fraternity
Associated Press


AUSTIN — The University of Texas now has its first and only gay fraternity.
Delta Lambda Phi, a nationally recognized gay fraternity, was inducted at UT earlier this year.
Russell van Kraayenburg, president of the fraternity, brought up the idea to open a gay fraternity to the UT Greek community six months ago.
"Everyone's been so supportive on campus," he said. "There's not been a single person I've talked to who's been against the idea or even questioned the idea."
Members complained that a lot of fraternities exclude gays at UT.
"I would go through West Campus and see all the other fraternities and I just kind of knew in my mind, I was like, I can't be in that fraternity,'" said UT student Ryan Yezak, who's now one of seven members of the gay fraternity.

I'll bet this frat can build a human pyramid like no other!
