About Us

Delta Lambda Phi National Social Fraternity was founded in 1986 in Washington, D.C. It is a social organization geared primarily towards gay and bisexual men, though we welcome men of any sexual orientation.

Our vision and purpose, as defined by our National Organization, seeks the following:

Delta Lambda Phi makes a positive and lasting difference in the lives of our Brothers and our community. Our commitment to social justice, friendship, and personal growth is reflected through making our presence make a difference. Our Brotherhood is committed to friendship with all and we welcome those who aspire to share our vision.

To realize our vision, members of Delta Lambda Phi adhere to these principles:

      • To develop dignified and purposeful, social, service, and recreational activities for progressive men, irrespective of sexual orientation.
      • To lead in determining the rights and privileges of individuals in society.
      • To promote a strong and positive image, which respects the diversity of all individuals, irrespective of sexual orientation.

The original Boston Colony was founded in October 1998 by eight students from Boston University, New England Conservatory, Tufts, MIT, and Massachusetts College of Art. In 2001, we became the Alpha Chi Chapter. Despite our youth, our chapter embodies the many great traditions of Delta Lambda Phi and the Greek system itself. In 2011, a new Boston University Colony was “born” to revive the Alpha Chi Chapter after a brief dormancy. As of October 6, 2012, the Alpha Chi Chapter is reborn at Boston University.
