This thesis research seeks to examine the intersections of race, gender, class, and sexuality in relation to the experience of minority LGBTQ sorority women and fraternity men in Greek-letter organizations within the Sorority and Fraternity Life system. This research will explore race, class, gender, and sexuality as categories that organize culture and society; but also as sources of individual and collective identity and action. The research aims to contribute new knowledge about the experiences and opinions of minority LGBTQ Greek students, in order to support their equal and full participation in Greek student organizations and campus life. Therefore, this is to be a qualitative research project that though an undergraduate autoenthnography, will be of a high standard and a usable resource not only for the minority LGBTQ Greek students themselves but also for the Sorority and Fraternal community as a whole. The hope is that it will also be a catalyst for further research in a currently under-researched field of study.
