Chicago — A nonbinary student at the University of Alabama was recently cut from every sorority during the rush period.
Grant Sikes expressed to her followers on Instagram the pain of being denied.
“I’m sad because I wanted to be part of a sisterhood and more than that, a community,” Sikes posted.
Despite national sororities announcing plans to increase inclusivity, AL.com found that none of the sororities with these policies are active at the University of Alabama and no data exists about LGBTQ members who participate in Greek life.
“Being dropped from my last house this morning during primary recruitment at the University of Alabama doesn’t come as a surprise considering out of the almost 20 chapters – I was dropped by every single one except 2 before day 1….I’m hopeful of a future where everyone is welcomed for just being themselves everywhere,” said Sikes.
