We are the Beta Xi chapter of Delta Lambda Phi at NYU. Delta Lambda Phi is the fastest growing fraternity in the country that is open to gay, bisexual, and progressive men. Our fraternity was founded in October of 1986 by three men who wanted to create a social fraternity that did not discriminate against sexual orientation. Vernon L. Strickland, III founded the fraternity and went on to initiate 24 men into the Alpha Chapter the following April.
On the early morning of Sunday, April 29 2007, the 9 founding members of the Beta Xi Chapter of Delta Lambda Phi finally became brothers and made their presence known!
Currently, our chapter at NYU has 15 members and continues to grow along with our community involvement. In March 2010, we hosted NYU’s first drag show and raised $2,000 for Health Outreach to Teens. Along with our philanthropic endeavors, we also volunteer with organizations like GLAAD, Health Outreach To Teens, Trevor Project, Trinity Place Shelter, Youth PrideFest, and Ali Forney.
The fraternity created by gay men for all men.
Come as you are, become a Lambda man!
