Delta Lambda Phi was founded on October 15, 1986 by Vernon L. Strickland III, Esq. We are an international fraternity for gay,bisexual, and progressive men. Here at Florida International University, Beta Delta was founded on the Mosdesto Modique Campus in 2003 by Br. Jorge Casas. DLP’S BETA DELTA is a campus-based chapter, so we welcome the interest of enrolled FIU students.

Our Purposes:

  1. To develop dignified and purposeful, social, service and recreational actives for all men, irrespective of sexual orientation.
  2. To lead in determine the rights and privileges of individuals in society.
  3. To present a strong and positive images, which respects the diversity of all individuals, irrespective of sexual orientation.

WHAT WE DO: Since we are primarily a social group, we have parties, hold events (like DLP Divas and Wyte Family Reunion) and correspond with other chapters around the country. We also have regional (twice a year) and national (once a year) conventions. More generally, we hang/go out and strengthen the bond of brotherhood.

Is socializing all you do? No. We are proud of our service work. We volunteer for our philanthropy, Care Resource – South Florida’s leading Non-Profit center for the treatment, care and prevention of HIV/AIDS. We also often volunteer at other organizations around the Miami area. All money raised through our events are donated to AIDS Walk Miami — which benefits CareResource.

    I would like to know if Delta Lambda Phi can help me spread the word about a crowdfunding project in support of the 1st LGBT hostel chain to be launched in the US.

    The funds from our crowdfunding campaign will be used to pay for a prototype that will serve as a demonstration to prospective investors.

    Hello Gentlemen, I am an assistant professor in the Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing and Health Sciences. My colleague Dr. Sande Jones and I have a program grant to address HIV and substance abuse prevention on campus. We would like to roll out a program conducted by our community partner titled Voices/Voces. This would be a one time session (with some sort of refreshments provided) that could be presented on campus. We are wondering if your group would be interested in facilitating us. Please feel free to email me and I would love to speak to you at your earliest convenience~
