June is Pride Month: Resources
To our members, we are here for you, we care about you, and you are loved. We recognize that we may not have all the answers regarding lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer topics, but we commit that we are listening, growing and learning more about how we can best advocate and care for our LGBTQ members. We encourage our members to always talk, listen, and be open with one another. This dialogue is often when our brotherhood shows the most and where we can show the most love.
If you are seeking answers, we encourage members to seek out the organizations below. If you are interested in lending your voice to the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion efforts within Tau Kappa Epsilon, consider visiting TKE.org/Equality, write to us at TKEOGC@TKE.org or get involved at your local level. You are encouraged to reach out to us at TKE HQ and we are more than happy to connect you with local volunteers and regional representatives.
