On Feb. 16, UNC’s Interfraternity Council hosted an event addressing personal development and mental health that has since been criticized by student leaders as offensive, misogynistic and otherwise problematic. Keynote speaker David Hagan described his speech as "intentionally blunt, graphic and filled with profanity," designed that way to resonate with young men.

There are two spheres on college campuses that have been, for the most part, pitted against each other in cinematic depictions and social media, seeming to operate in two separate realms of possibility. But being a part of Greek life as a member of the LGBTQ+ community is neither impossible nor discouraged. UNC students share their experiences participating in Greek life while also being openly gay, which is still not without its challenges. But like many things, young people are changing the way the collegiate experience looks today.
