Frat house raises funds for brother's transgender transformation2/26/2013
College fraternity brothers are known for banding together for a variety of causes — drinking, hazing and drinking — but raising money for a fellow Greek’s transgender medical bills isn't usually one of them. Still, such is the case at Boston's Emerson College, where the lads of the Alpha Chapter of Phi Alpha Tau joined together to raise money for the $8,100 cost for sophomore Donnie Collins' female-to-male top surgery. As of this writing, they had raised more than $10,000. Collins' insurance policy through the school is trans-exclusionary, and he'd been paying out-of-pocket for hormone therapy until the frat stepped in. The frat's funding site states, "We are here ... to tell a story. The story of transformation, the story of self-discovery, and the story of brotherhood." [Source]
