Huh? Men Interested in Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority??? They Call Themselves MIAKA’s

Well-coifed Black men in pink and green outfits. Flawless make-up. Pearl bracelets. When images of presumably gay men dressed like Alpha Kappa Alpha (AKA) Sorority members surfaced on the Internet, message boards lit up across Black America as folks expressed concern that the men had created their own unofficial chapter of AKA.

Photos of inductees to the Tri Alpha Chapter of MIAKA (Men Interested in Alpha Kappa Alpha) from Texas Southern University and Prairie View A&M were published on a BET.com forum that became a user showdown. Black radio lines buzzed, and Houston’s CBS affiliate ran a story.

The media portrayed the group as a rogue “new” faction of gay men, dead set on infiltrating AKA, the nearly century-old sorority. AKA National stressed MIAKAs had “no official or unofficial standing with the sorority.” MIAKAs claimed foul play. Both parties threatened lawsuits.

Update: June 11, 2012: MediaTakeOut.com just learned that a group of GAY MEN plan on filing a lawsuit against the prestigious Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. You see the GAY MEN believe that they should have the opportunity to pledge the sorority.

For now, the gay men have created a non-sanctioned “sister” sorority to the AKAs . . . and they call it the MiAKAs. The MIAKAs use the same hand signs, the same steps, and the same COLORS as the traditional AKAs.

  1. “The media portrayed the group as a rogue “new” faction of gay men,”

    Well that’s obvious to a duck. shoot they are called MIAKAs TRANS-lation they are interested in AKAs doesn’t mean they are interested in joining them they are interested in them.

  2. THis is SOme bull shit each and every one of yall faget azz niggas shuld b slapped cuz dis dnt make no sensse !!!!! (lol) U aRE ACUTALLY HUMILIATING YOURSELVES (I KANT sPELL BUT ANYWAYZ !!!! thIS IS JUST NASTY )

  3. It cracks me up to see people who can’t even spell correctly, try to talk about people. Alot of people are like “oh my gosh they disrespected the aka’s and so on and so on”, but when I look at the aka’s they are still flipping their hair and acting like they are God’s gift to the world. So I think they are doing just fine. P.s……for the girl who posted these pics; all the aka’s and their headquarters specifically said not to distribute these pics online and/or to anyone but you did. Now people, you tell me whose in the wrong.

  4. I just wanted to put out there that the first pic of guys are not Actual Miakas from TSU… So get your shit straight..

    SKEEE WEEEE

  5. Ok wow. If they insist on starting their own chapter for themselves, be unique. Start some other sorority (actually you are men no matter what you think… so fraternity) and make it your own. I’m sure that a lot of gay guys would appreiciate a fraternity where everyone there has the same interests and ideas. So people, don’t get it twisted and think that I’m hating on the fact that they’re gay. I’m just a little disturbed that they would try and be someone that they are not. A man could never be an AKA no matter how much you want to. Bottom line. Call me a hater, or whatever you like. But what I just said will always be true. Start your own stuff and stop trying to be like someone else. You would be respected more, and taken a little more seriously.

  6. I am not saying that men of the gay community should want to take the sheer essence of what an AKA is but if they feel the need or want to be that I don’t think that it is harming anyone. If I’m not mistaking they call themselves MIAKA(Men Interested in Alpha Kappa Alpha). These young are what we call confused and are not completely understanding of what and who they are so they become attracted to something that is easy to grasp. Now of course they will have endure some bad publicity but they are willing to go through with and I think that I the Name of Alpha Kappa Alpha is the only thing that is on peoples mines then let me remind you that You make the name, the colors, and the letters…them don’t make you or do they.

  7. As a member of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity INC. and a brother of AKA I find this story and those guys to be totally sick. For 1, a sorority is strickly for women and that’s pretty much that. If you are a man you join fraternities if you are a woman you join soroties. although I don’t agree with the gay lifestyle I feel people have the right to date and be attracted to whomever they please. What i do have issue with is those MEN trying to steal the likelihood or imitate the AKA’s. I feel if they wanted their own FRATENITY (MEN) they should have the right to create it but not the right to steal from or copy from a organization that has and wants nothing to do with them. I think what they are doing is just another example of how sick this world is becoming and a further sign that the end is near. History of the Bible tells me that God destroyed great nations after they but money, greed, and homosexuality above his word and commandments. It’s clearly written in the Bible! I will continue to pray form my sister and the rest of the AKA’s that God will remove this abomination from their mist.

  8. As a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., it greatly angers me that after the incident in Dallas, that someone would copy and paste some pics of other guys who like, want to be like, or be aka’s. My sorority has stated many of times in different forums about these guys, yes its wrong, but people shouldnt be posting them up on their own websites or sending them to everyone. Its almost like oh ok, here’s some pics of boys throwing up the signs of sororites or fraterities that they are not in, lets see how mad I can get everybody and post these pics. This mess has to stop. Lets quit spreading this stuff. If anything, we should be praying that these guys wil stop this and become better men.

  9. ITS CALLED FREEDOM OF PRESS!… by you making a comment on the situation you are pushing the story that was posted almost a month ago back to the top. The only way to get rid of bad press is to just ignore it and let it go away on it’s own. The more you speak on it the more gas you pour on the fire.

  10. I so don’t understand how or why all of this mess got started. I do agree that if a male wants to be an AKA, a Delta, or member of any other sorority…that it’s too bad. Women work too hard and too long to get those letters and they pay good money to wear them. It’s disrespectful when someone of ANY gender comes along and says “Oh, I like this, so I’m gonna rep it.” It is rude, childish, and just plain wrong to throw up a sign that others worked for months to be able to throw up. It’s especially wrong when a man tries to imitate a women by wanting to join a sorority. There are fraternities out there, and like someone else said, why don’t you just make up your own? That’s better than going “underground” and saying you’re a part of something that WOMEN worked so hard for. As for you men AND women going around claiming any fraternity or sorority that you weren’t properly and LEGALLY inducted into, please have the dignity to stop and realize how angry that makes all greeks. Please take time and think about this. One more thing. To all miakas, delta gents, romeos, and any other confused male on this earth, stand up, look down and realize you have one thing hangin between your pants, not two things sitting on your chest.

    Thanx!!!

  11. Oh my God! first of all God created Adam and Eve not Gay/Bi shit we are in our very last days men are becoming lovers of them selves there so jealous of there own black women. Black men date white women so they can sleep with men white women let there men sleep with men.

    Black men are so in love with white men now it’s so sick there having un- protected sex. Black men are also in love with black men. police have found men having sex with men and dogs in the parks,public bath rooms its so Sick! We have no real men anymore men like to suck on d*cks.

    At night men dress like women and have sex with men check out Craigslist then click under men seeking men there are married men,college students and so on posting pictures of themselves having sex with men. Some men call themselves BI theres no such thing as BI there just Gay.

    I wish God come and wipe all these gay freaks of the earth now these sick f*ckers are putting women at risk.

  12. It is terrible that these men (biologically) are attempting to portray a Sorority, my Sorority to be exact. I have gotten over the initial shock of this CHAOS and now it is simply laughable that these miscreants have nothing better to do with thier lives. I hope that they find other outlets, but if they are going to portray AKA are they doing the service that MY SORORITY does? Are they fundrasing to provide scholarships? Are the building Habitat for Humanity homes? Are they going to Ronald McDonald House? Are they tutoring at after school care? Are they doing ANYTHING ‘worth while’….the answer to that is a resounding NO!!!

    All they are doing is putting on colors, STEALING Our Shield, and looking a FOOL!

    TO all of the MI-HAM’s (hot ass mess)….do some communtiy service then holla back! Will you have my letters then….Hell no, but at least you will speak of substance!

    To ALL of MY Sorors (ie women of AKA) please let us put this crap behind us and celebrate the Centennial of AKA with elegance, style, sisterhood, and most importantly SERVICE!!!

  13. First of all, you guys do know that you all won’t receive any respect for imitating this organization that black women have worked 100 years for. In reguards to what the gentlemen “Myself” said above, to be an AKA you have to have the true essence. There is no almost AKA or part AKA it consumes all of you. I ask what is wrong with starting your own greek-letter organization? And it’s quite funny that ol’ dude is dissin’ AKA’s by saying that they áct like they God’s gift to the world but yet he’s imitating them! To the Men Imitating Alpha Kappa Alpha ya’ll got some balls use them to make a positive movement and not destroy one that is already in existence.

  14. OMG! I am in the hospital because I saw these pics. My doc said that if I am going to get better, these pics need to dissappear. But I told him how can they dissappear if people keep copying and pasteing them everywhere like dumb asses?! He said well if thats the case, then you will die in this hospital. I said all I can do is pray that people will quit acting like lil kids and take this stuff down. Tear Tear!

  15. This is so disrespectful, words cant even describe. Being a member of a NPHC black sorority, someone needs to Shut these fake ass dudes down! Its fine if they want to be gay and start some type of guy crap, but to copy AKA’s and use their callings and everything is just plain disrespect!!!! Not to mention, not everyone takes to people being “openly gay” and these guys are going to mess with the wrong one and get hurt.

  16. Even though I dont think that a guy should try to imitate a sorority in any kind of way, I must admit that these guys faces, eyebrows and nails are flawless. I mean, these guys look better than some of the girls in the actual soroity that they are portraying. Well yall better work out…lol.

  17. This is o so disrespectful! i just dont understand. . . somebody need to stop postin these pictures. if yall (MIAKAS) wanna wanna be gay, make up ya own damn sorority, dont bite off aka. This IS DOWN RIGHT DISGUSTING!!! . .this makes me so angry, i really dont understand these wanna be women,. . .faggot asses

  18. yall get over it, like the girl said these boys look better than some of the girls thats in the sorority. YALL NEED TO BE MAD AT THE AKA that was sittin around telling these guys the secrets and rituals, they didnt find it out on there own and yall already know how girls can be when they hang around faggots and the HBCU that i attended the MAJORITY of the faggots were always seen around AKA’s so stop trippin

  19. If you gay guys are men interested in AKAs then do their nails, their hair, or their make-up don’t copy them. Each and every 1 of them should be b***h slapped for thrownin them signs up and making calls. OOoo and No these guys don’t look better than women they look Dumb as Hell!! that’s what they look.

  20. And again you’re wrong, they DO INDEED look better than some of the actual girls in the sorority and thats just the DAMN TRUTH. You can hate it or you can love it, but one thing you can’t deny is that they do look better than some of the real PRETTY GIRLS!!! I just wish that people who just take a breathing treatment, get over it and move on. Need I say anymore…..lol. You know you love me…….xoxo, Gossip Girl!

  21. HELLO

    WELL MY CONCERN IS HOW THIS WILL AFFECT THE (REAL) SORORITY. THE PAST TWO YEARS I HAVE BEEN TAKING IN CONSIDERATION OF JOINING AKA AND TO FIND THAT MEN HAVE JUST STARTING THERE OWN ORGANIZATION (SHOULD I EVEN CALL IT THAT?), REALLY HURTS MY HEART. IT KIND OF DISCOURAGES ME AND OTHERS TO JOIN. THIS IS A HUGE SET BACK FOR THE (REAL)AKAs BECAUSE THEY ARE LOSING OUT ON CONTRIBUTIONS, THEIR UNIQUENESS, AND REPUTATIONS. MANY WOMEN MAY RECONSIDER JOINING THE ORGANIZATION BECAUSE OF THIS. JUST REALIZE HOW MUCH YOU ARE GOING TO HURT THE (REAL)SORORITY. ESPECIALLY NOW THAT THIS ISSUE IS A NATIONAL THING. I HAVE ONE QUESTION. IF YOU ALL ARE MEN, THEN WHY COULDN’T YOU START A FRATERNITY? I WAS JUST WONDERING BECAUSE IT DIDNT MAKE SINCE TO TRY AND START AN ORGANIZATION THAT IS BASED ON SISTERHOOD WHEN YOU ARE A MAN.

  22. This shit is sooooo wack. All this BS about oh my heart is hurt, im discouraged, im discusted and blah blah blah. Get the hell over it and move on with yalls lives. People act like little kids in kindergarten who got their favorite toy taken away. Ok yeah the boys took pics throwing up signs of the almighty AKA’s, girls do it when they’re not greek and boys do it when they’re not greek.But moving on……Yeeeeeeeey for Barak Obama for President.

  23. First & formost, I have no comment on the gentlemen portraying the famed African American Sorority. 2. To Mr. Chris Williams, You are not a brother to any AKA exept those who were born to your parents. Your sisters are the Sigma Gamma Rho girls. Don’t get it twisted, brother. Own it, embrace it, but don’t lie about it.

  24. It is clear that many Black greeks ARE making a value judgement here and that ideologies around rigid gender norms are coming into play about how people see MIAKA’s in addition to folks failing to recognize our deep homophobia & the sheer lack of social space it therefore affords us queers. I am not condoning copying, just saying that this is one of the many outcomes of our varied and evolving (Black Greek) culture- a step along the lines of what you describe here.
    I pledged a frat b/c they were open to me from the get go, which IS NOT the case for most queers, and most inside our orgs stay closeted, even as nat’l leaders- which is sad. I found an accepting group within PBS and found many gays across all greeks.
    Like I said, if you adhere to such antiquated views, AND you pledged to support the Black community (all of us Greeks pledged this in so many words) then stop hating and encourage these MIAKA’s to start their own org, like the APhiA supported the AKA, like us Sigma supported Zeta? Come on now, is dissing someone the only way? Did you actually watch my video? Can you respond to what I said instea of just repeated crap.

  25. wat the hell is wrong with yall i want to join this sorority and i dont want to see men tring to be a alpha kappa alpha that is just wrong join delta sigma theta or zeta phi beta i for XXXXXX 1agree with jada!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. I feel like this….

    People will always commit themselves to doing things in life that are not approved of by someone. Life is too short to focus on what everyone else is doing. The individuals who are involved in this public display will have to deal with what they are doing. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated has already stated they do not have any ties to these young men. If they choose to spend their days on this earth trying to be someone else, it is a true waste for them. Do not give them anymore attention!

    It is Alpha Kappa Alpha’s Centennial and that is something to be proud of for African-Americans as a whole. Thats something meaningful to talk about. The first Alpha Kappa Alpha barbie doll was introduced 3 weeks ago in Washington, D.C. at the Alpha Kappa Alpha Boule’. These are the things we should be excited about. Not someone who is not worth your time or mines discussing. It is ironic how on the year of the centennial, all this comes out? Let Alpha Kappa Alpha enjoy there year!! Let’s be happy about he progression of African-American organizations into the American Millennium.

  27. i PERS0NALLi THiNK iTSz A GUD iDEA………..B-CUS SUM FRATERMiTYSz MiGHT N0T ACCEPT THEM BECAUSE OF HOW THEY ARE………..AND i LOVE AKAz………S0 KEEP DOiN WAT CHU DO…………

  28. This is a travesty. Regardless of what their sexual orientation may be, all this does is dilute what BGLO’s are truly about. And to the comment of how some fraternities may not accept them because of ‘how they are’, maybe it’s because they (clearly) have very little to offer to any such organization.

    This is evident in the fact that men who are homosexual are brought in to every fraternity, some whom are closeted, but many that are not. And these brothers are about their business.

    These “MIAKA’s” disgust me, and I’ll reiterate that its not because they may be gay, but because they care so little for what these organizations are about.

  29. iT DNT SEEM LiKE THEY DiSGUST MUCH……….BECAUSE YURE SURE ON HERE COMMENTiN!!!!!!!!!HA…….YOUR KiND MiGHT DiSGUST THEM EVER THiNK OF THAT!!!!!!!!!(GET A LiFE PPL*

  30. If by ‘my kind’ you refer to the group of individuals that has a deep respect and appreciation for things that we cannot rightfully call our own, and the dignity to not make a mockery of such things, then you would be correct.

    I take it that you also think its appropriate for people to dress in black face for Halloween.

  31. N0 N0T WHAT i MEANT………..STRAiGHT MEN………..UNLESS YURE UNDERCOVER……….iM NOT ABOUT 2 GET INTO THAT BUT IF THATS WHAT YOU THINK THEN THINK IT………

    N DUH!!…. YOU CAN BE ANYTHING FOR HALLOWEEN THATS WHY THEY CALL THEM COSTUMES…………. :D

  32. I am a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha. It is time to put this issue to the side. In less than a week, our country will be accepting its first black president. An issue such as that is worth the conversation not this.

    I earned my letters and my sisterhood. I can only hope that these men see the error of their ways and develop a tradition of their own. The reality, no matter how they may redefine it, is that AKA is a SISTERHOOD.

    Every sorority and fraternity has their own legacy, their own roots. But the point is they serve the greater purpose of empowering the black community and the greater world. If these men want to have something, I suggest that they make it their own and then do what the rest of us have vowed to do. Empower their community.

    And for anyone who would be swayed from a sisterhood such as AKA because of these men: AKA was never for you. The road to AKA is a long one, and if this can deter you, you would have never made it anywya.

    I love my Alpha, I love my Kappa, I love my AKA because its deep down in my heart.

  33. I am not greek and I am not gay, but I feel so much anger coming from both sides of the arguments here. I do not feel in any way that these young men should disrespect the Alpha Kappa Alpha’s just because they are interested. However I do understand them wanting to be a part of such an illustrious organization.

    I guess my words of advice is, for all those that feel disrespected by these young men, find it in your heart to pray for them and ask God to watch over them and touch their hearts. For the young men a part of this “organization” i guess you can call it since it is not technically official in any legal manner, APhiA, AKA, DST, Q’s ZPhiBSigma, Iota’s, Kappa’s and Rho were all started because the founders felt there was a need that was not being met for a certain group of people. If you feel that your need is not being met, then tap into your true intelligence and design and create your own organization that allows Black America to see you for your idea’s and stregnths. Right now, you are adding insult to the Gay communtity and I am sure that is not your intended purpose. But I do not feel that you will ever my respected by disrespecting someone else.

  34. I have to say I TOTALLY agree with these guys. I mean you people need to wake up a smell the coffee. Do you all really think that there arent other gay guys out there that are interested in DST, ZPHIB, and SGRHO. Really the gays and no offense I love them all and I myself is not gay, but I respect them. They have their world just like we have ours. There are gay females that have formed gay APHIA, KAPSI, QUE,PHIBE. I mean theres so much u dont even know. World be real. Do you really think this just started..lol I hate it. lmao Its been around for years. Somebody had to be talking, I mean they know ALL rituals and secrets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. I think this is complete stupidity. Someone said that they don’t see anything wrong with what is going on, but you have to understand. AKA isn’t some overnite Sorority! It is a sorority that has been standing strong for about 101 years to this day. No group of anybody’s have the right to emulate? A sorority is for women and fraternity is for men. If they are undecided why don’t they just start a club, but please dont try and take what these women work so hard to build! I am a non-greek male and I understand greek life just a little, but I do know that what these MI—-AKA’s are doing is wrong and total disrespect!

  36. My brother their are so many gay faggot men in the Kappa’s. Get over it over being homophobic. Back in the seventies at Morgan State, most the Kappa men were very feminine like women. On the issue of these men wanting to be AKA’s is wrong. Alpha Kappa Alpha, Inc. is a female Sorority for women, not men, Drag Queens, or Transgendered people.

  37. To Chris Williams the so called NUPE. There are so many gay men of Kappa Alpha Psi, Inc. living here in the Washington, D.C. area. Many are bottoms! Get over being a homophobic. I am not going to talk about the numerous gay men in Alpha Phi Alpha, Inc. and Omega Psi Phi, because I have me several in my 50 years on this earth. Some live on the DL and some are openly gay.

  38. Ok after reading the comments I must say there are alot of ignorant people in the world. For one I am not by any chance saying it is right for them to imitate the A.K.A’S I as a gay male do disagree. But on the flip side can you blame them? First try being a openly gay male and pledge a fraternity at a HOMOPHOBIC HBCU and see how far you get…Just ask me I tried….Most openly gay males are proud of who they are and I for one was NOT about to go back into a closet because what I though would have been a brotherhood of black men could not or would not look past my sexual oreintaion and except me for who I am regardless of how flamboyant or not I was. Secondly there are ALOT ALOT of gay men in frats but they are all in the closet. Most frats frown upon homosexuality even though it is prominent in there group. Its almost like they rather you fake it then be yourself. I am not justifying one these kats are doing by no means I agree step away and make something of your own. But its not like they are disrepecting AKAs they are admiring them I dont know I just think its bout time the world get over the homophobia and to whoever threw the bible out there God has done WONDERFUL things in my life just because I am gay that does NOT mean he does NOT still watch over his flock as he promised Stop judging and read the book on your OWN sins …

  39. AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED IF YOU WANT TO BE A FREAK, FINE. BUT PLEASE DON’T THINK YOU WILL BE BESMURCHING MY SORORITY.

    ‘HIGH ETHICAL AND MORAL STANDARDS’ – I AM SORRY, THIS IN NO WAY CONDONES OR APPRECIATES UN-CHRISTLIKE BEHAVIOR. NO WAY!

    THE DIVINE NINE WERE ALL FOUNDED BY CHRISTIANS…AND CHRIST HAS ONE VIEW ON SAME SEX COUPLES…IT IS SIN = NOT ETHICAL OR MORAL.

    FOUND YOUR OWN.

  40. TO KY Princess YES IT IZ HIGHLY WRONG 4 WHAT MIAKA IS DOIN BUT YOU SHOULD’NT JUDGE SAME SEX COUPLES AS A SIN. YOU’RE NOT GOD AND IF YOU’RE A CHRISTIAN, YOU SHOULD’NT MAKE DEROGATORY OR HYPOCRITICAL COMMENTS LIKE THAT.

  41. Someone said they look better than some of the pretty girls. Grrreat….They really should just make their own shit, stop copying off the AKA’s. That is not fair to them. Flattery may be a compliment, but Im sorry…one should not go around just wearing sacred colors and throwing up the signature signs!! And wearing letters/ infringing on letters that they are not entitled to if applicable! That is just not fair! I THOUGHT I seen it all..this is actually something new to me, so thanks to whomever put this up. I am not an AKA, but damn if I cant understand some of their sentiments!

    I pray to my GAWD that I dont EVER see anyone like these miakas trying to do this to my blue and while sisters…I think I will just faint at that point! Guys, please make your own org!!!

  42. torch 12:49 pm on January 24, 2008 Permalink

    It cracks me up to see people who can’t even spell correctly, try to talk about people. Alot of people are like “oh my gosh they disrespected the aka’s and so on and so on”, but when I look at the aka’s they are still flipping their hair and acting like they are God’s gift to the world.

    We are

  43. hahaha no comment maybe the AKA’s should take this as a complement. Its flattering LMAO!!!!

  44. …..THiS iZ AN EMBARASSMENT TO THA DEViNE NiNE…MOST OV ALL AKAs..WAT THA HELL iZ WRONG WiT DA WORLD TODAY…………SHAME ON YALL FAGOTT ASS BiTCHEz
    DAMN YALL FUCCED UP Mi DAY..!!!!!!!!!!!

  45. What the F***! I am not homophobic nor do I feel that homosexuals should be treated differently but I, for one, as a member of the sacred and illustrious organization of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorperated, I am appaulled and pissed!!!! What kind of crap is this? I am completly lost for words.These MEN need to find there own organization or get sued for all they have… this is an obomination!!!

  46. I found this blog as I was researching the AKAs because I want to join one day. I must say it is very disturbing that these men are trying to imitate the AKAs. For one as a non member of AKA, I would never go out in public and do the hand signs, call or wear their letters, because I have not pleged and that would be highly disrepectful to those who have. However to be honest in the privacy of my room yeah I practice it, but in public I know that its not tolerated. The behaviour of these men is why most people do not respect the the the gay/lesbian/transgendered/and ? community. You do not force your way into an organization just to create publicity. What they should/ could have done is write a letter to the AKAs and asked to use what I am sure is their intellectual property. If (When) the AKAs say no, then start your own org with your own letters, colors and so on. I think they go around doing this because they think that the AKAs would feel public pressure to not discriminate against them and let them continue what they are doing. But instead they are feeling the backlash of their actions. On a business tip lets be real here. One can not call their hotel W- Trump International Hotel and expect Trump not to be insulted, or develop software and call it MI-Vista Print, especially when the imitator is a poor imitation.
    Now some of the supporters of these men and MI-AKAs have also come on here and stated that these men look better than AKAs….WOW! Dillusional much? Don’t speak badly about the AKAs or any Divine Nine, especially when you’re copying them sweetheart. If you really think they are that bad then do like the Deltas, and create your own (Sorry Deltas to throw you in, just trying to make a point). Guess its true what they say about AKAs, “behind every AKA is a pack of haters” and they’re “Often imitated never duplicated”. God bless everyone.

  47. I am not a member of any greek organization, but as someone who considers himself bisexual I think this is a bit excessive (as gay men can be). Why would one want to “piggy back” on someone elses legacy like that?You’d think that they would want to create there own. I feel as if everything is not mean’t for everyone and the fact that they are bombarding there way into such an established oragnization is (for lack of a better word) stupid. There are male fraternity’s that have no problems accepting gay men, I’m sure. It really all boils down to one thing: The homosexual man forgetting that he is still a MAN at the end of the day. It’s mental. These guys are just conforming to sterotypes, but taking it lto an un heard of level. And then to speak ill of any true AKA is preposertous, when you are imitating they’re likeness.

  48. As a homosexual black male I feel as though this is a disgrace. I think they are adding on to the stereotype that a gay mans goal is to try to be a woman and take over the fucking world. I have never been a fan of greek organizations especially the divine 9, but I will say that I think it is wrong to try and take something that does not belong to you. Myself personally would never want to be apart of an organization that does not except. I would be god damned if I go through the whole pledging process and not be the “REAL” thing and not be able to wear my letters that I would have socalled earned in public.

  49. AS A MEMBER OF THE BETA EPSILON ALPHA CHAPTER OF MIAKA FRATERNITY INCORPORATED…..BEFORE YOU PEOPLE OPEN YOUR MOUTHS…..1ST….YOU NEED TO WORRY ABOUT YOUR OWN ORGANIZATION……2ND. IF INDEED YOU ARE AN AKA…NOTHING WE DO IS INTENDED TO BE DISRESPECTFUL TO THE LOVELY LADIES OF ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA SORORITY INCORPORATED…..IM NOT GOIN TO LEAVE THE BOUNDARIES OF MY CHARACTER AND CALL PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR NAMES BECAUSE THATS IGNORANT AND CHILDISH BUT I WILL SAY THIS************* MIAKA DOES NOT STAND FOR MEN INTERESTED IN ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA******************…… MIAKA STANDS FOR ( MEN “INCORPORATED” under the constitution and bylaws of ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA INCORPORATED)…………

    P.S. WADE LYLE…. A MAN HAD A LOT TO DO WITH EVERYTHING THAT ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA IS….REAL AKA’S SHOULD DO SOME RESEARCH INTO THE HISTORY AND LET HERSTORY GO!!!!

    SKEE WEE!!!!

  50. I have heard of the MIAKA”S in the southern colleges and they never did things like this! They were definately men of distinction however, they were appointed as the finest guys on campus not they gay dudes on the yard! These guys are not presented by AKA’s nor uphold the standard of MEN as it pretains to AKA’s. YEs there was a man who helped with the makings of ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA, however, what these guys are doing is just flaunting. Have you done service, gained culture and merit??? If you are a true MIAKA, you would never hold up ivy symbols, mirrors and pinky fingers. If they are going to imitate the organization or affiliate, lets see the values the organization has worked so hard to build not the probates and pink and green style.

    Imagine how you’d feel if you were in an artist or in a club and all of a sudden some random people, start dressing acting and performing like you…copycats always get called out. Thats the problem. I worked hard in school for my letters to be apart of a sisterhood known as AKA. Not a social club of girls and guys called MIAKA and AKA. Its not cool to see people post photos of things I had to get a 3.95 GPA to have and go thru highwater to claim boldly and proudly. Not to have some one just probate my colors and do my sisterly call and floss holding my stance and sign…thats disrespectful no matter how sweet or nice you think it is.

    I suggest building your own organization thats complete original. Just like the AKA’S APHIA’S DST, Q’S SIGMAS, ZETAS, KAPPAS, SGRHO’S AND IOTA’S ALONG WITH THR GROOVE’S AND SWING, TBS’S AND KKPSI. If you have no place, crreate a NEW PLACE NOT A SUBSTATION.

    A SOPRANO SSSSSKKKKKEEEEEE WWWWEEEEEE IS IN ORDER NOT A TENOR!!!!NOW PROBATE THAT…

  51. Lol, this is so depressing. I am not a greek but am hoping to be one this fall, and i see this. This by no way discourages me but i really do think it is sad that men are trying to be like woman of a confirmed org that has been around for so long. How dare you take it upon yourselves to imitate a organization that CLEARLY wants nothing to do with you. As a law student i can tell you this.. you will be sued…not maybe but will and then what…yall gunna imitate delta (NO OFFENCE GIRLS) The idea of imitation it self is wrong bc it means copying. I wouldnt DARE even put the signiture sound of Alpha Kappa Alpha at the end of this page bc i respect the sorority to much for that. I will wait and hopefully have my turn…BECAUSE I AM A WOMAN AND I MIGHT GET A TURN…you guys on the other hand are not…you will never be acccepted by anyone but your gay buddies who as you can see dont all agree with what your doing

    AND STOP BRINGING UP OTHER FRATS INTO THIS DUMB SITUATION…YOU KNOW WHY THEY DONT ACCEPT YOU… LOOK INTO THIER HISTORY…ITS AGAINST WHAT THEY STAND FOR…GUESS Y…BC THEY HAD CHRISTIAN FOUNDERS….DUH

    AND TO THE IDIOTIC GUY WHO SAID THAT AKA’S ARNT AS FINE AS SOME MIAKAS….QUESTION TO YOU….WHY DO THEIR NAILS..IMITATE THEIR HAIR PUT SHIT ON YOUR SKIN….FOR THE WOMEN OF ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA ARE HAVE NATURAL BEAUTY WITH THEIR CLASS AND..YOUR JUST USING MAN MADE CRAP THAT MAKES YOU LOOK EVEN MORE FOOLISH..AND YOU OF COURSE HAVE NO CLASS…WHAT SO EVER

    AND TO THE FOOL WHO IS TRYING TO INSULT PEOPLE BY TELLING THEM THEY CANNOT SPELL….ARE YOU IN F’ING KINDERGARDEN….OH YH U MUST BE BC IMITATION IS ACTUALLY PRACTISED IN THAT STAGE OF ONES LIFE

    I HAVE A GAY BEST FRIEND….HE IS NOT TRYING TO GO THROUGH THE PROCESS WITH ME…HE IS SUPPORTING ME…SO WHY DONT YOU SUPPORTS YOUR FRIENDS AND KEEP THE SECRETS THEY TELL (BC APPARENTLY YOU CANT BE TRUSTED WITH SECRETS, WHICH IS THE BASIS OF THE ORG TRUST) AND STOP HATING ON THEM!!!!!!!

    I KNOW YOU WONT LISTEN, I DONT THINK THE FORUM IS FOR THAT…ITS FOR PEOPLE TO EXPRESS THIER DISGUST…BC WE REALLY ARE DISGUSTED GREEK OR NOT!

    LOSERS….

  52. this is a hot mess.:why would MEN want to be apart of a SISTERHOOD??? this makes no sense at all.:these men should be locked away!!!! GOD is not pleased! the REAL AKA’s should sue for everything they have.:this is a total disgrace.:as an admirer of the ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha, i am disgusted!
    now MIAKA, skee wee to tht!

  53. THIS IS CRAZY. U WILL NEVER SEE THE MEN OF DELTA SIGMA THETA SORORITY INC… IN SUM OF THIS MESS…OOO-OOP MY SOROR

  54. LMAO! LMAO! All this bickering is a down right fucking mess! All of you guys need to calm the hell down and chill. As we know, every fraternity and sorority has gay or bisexual people in them, every last one. You may not believe that but its the truth. Now as far as copying somone else, its wrong. From kindercare all the way to college its wrong. Lets just move on from all this pettiness and concentrate on lifting up our current president. Oh, and from a previous note, if you’re are going to come on here and act a fool, learn how to spell because with this forum, all its doing is making these guys more famous.

  55. It appears that what a MIAKA was years ago, is very different from what it is today. In the 1980′s I was a MIAKA and we were nothing like what these comments seem to indicate it has become today. At that time MIAKA stood for Men Interested in Alpha Kappa Alpha ( we were interested in helping them, certainly NOT interested in being them, it meant we had friends or perhaps relatives that were AKAs). We were NOT gay, NOT feminine, and didn’t think we were a frat. We didn’t think we were AKA’s.
    We were a male auxiliary that helped the AKA’s. During the 1980′s nearly every fraternity and sorority had auxiliaries of the opposite sex (not all existed on every campus,but most did). In most cities Fraternities had female auxiliaries (Kappa Diamonds, Que Pearls\Essence, Sigma Doves, and Alpha Angels), while the sororities had male auxiliaries (MIAKAs, Zeta Knights and Delta Gents\Delta Mids). Many of the people that were in an auxiliary, eventually joined a Frat or Sorority.
    This whole new MIAKA Incorporated Fraternity stuff is totally foreign to me. I just hope that if someone hears the word MIAKA that they will realize, that it may mean very different things to different people, depending on time frame and perhaps location.

  56. WOW
    i dont even feel that a man could ever meet the criteria to be in a all womens organization…
    first know some history, then know some self respect, and last of all know and respect the guidelines of the Divine9

  57. Wow….ok, first to a post earlier…no, Kappa Alpha Psi is NOT the brother frat to Sigma Gamma Rho. There is only ONE Brother/Sister bond in the BGLO world. Do your research to find out who they are. Second, I think that that all the taking up for AKA in these comments are great BUT to all the non-greek members adding the AKA call to your comments whether to make a point or not, that is still disrespectful.

    Now, in regards to the situation at hand…..WOW…..Not only is the concern “Why don’t they start their own org” but the red flag that goes up to me is there are gay frats out there! Join one of those! and if there isnt one on your campus…GO GRAD

  58. OK. It kills me to know that men are trying to relate themselves to women. If you believe that the Alpha Kappa Alphas are amazing and you wish to be something of their nation then start your own organization. Be orginal. Get new colors and a new name and a NEW SWAG. Mocking a organization does not have a good send a good message. I love the AKAs but that does not mean I wish to be one Im just im love with there swagger. I just hoping one day Im become there brother…much love to Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. Like WOW said there are FRATERNITIES for homosexuals not SORORITY yall need to get you alls head on straight. Word of thought: DO WHAT YOU DO, BUT DO IT RIGHT.

  59. FOR 1. most of the people on here if u pledge and have made it then u should understand that when u r apart of a group or famly that holds a name around the globe it means alot.
    2. See people are forgetting the real reason why pledgers pledge not only to be apart of a goup, but to also make a difference in their community as a whole. with people being so negative towards these men who would love to pledge in a frat but can not becaused they ARE GAY gives them justification on doing their on thing.
    3. Alpha Kappa Alpha I can see the anger and confusion of wat may be going on for ur chapter but look at it this way. these young men admire the way ur chapter handles business not only at a college but also in future terms. u so hold ur heads high because these guys are not going out here promoting gay acts but community service act the way an AKA would promote them.
    4. for everyone to be so mad u have to ask how could these guys learn the ritual, steps, the creed right? someone on the inside who beleived that these u=young men could and did make a statement the statement that says just because i am gay does not mean i am not classy. That being gay is and will always be in our society and with each generation the gay society will come up this is just a step to being treated equally. I say u guys do ur thing and forget what everyone else has to say step up and step out let them know that us AKA can and will do anything for r community. SKKKKKKEEEEEE WEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

  60. The Name MIAKA has been used before. That was the name of a group of STRAIT men @ Morgan State (BALTIMORE) in the late 70s and early 80s. Why dont you come up with an original name. Yall are corny and gay.DAMN.

  61. As a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity INC I am very appalled that these ersatz men would try to be something that does not exist. I am sincerely proud that the sisters refuse to acknowledge this heresy. I believe that gay people have the right to do what they want, but just leave me alone.Religiously in Christianity and Islam, homosexuality is an abomination. Homosexuality is immature, and puerile, thank the GOD,our creator that the nose and the ear canal is not large enough to accomodate their rebellion against the sovereign GOD of creation.

  62. you know what i hate the most about being black. I once thought the black greek organizations were really a positive influence on the black community but I was living in Los Angeles. I moved to atlanta and I see so much hatered here that it is disgusting. I though the AKA’s were the jewels of the system but you women (I won’t ever call you ladies again) I thoght you were so sweet i always enjoyed your company i am not greek i have my own brothers I was always making gowns for the akas and finding the right make up for the akas i was there secret weapon but i guess when you come to an all black city you see the truth about alot of the BLACK PRIDE CRAP you are taught. The funny thing is gay men have been behind every pretty girl that has made it into the lime light.Every beautiful woman that you all look up to especially your elders are carried by the same gay men that the Miakas represent. we have been your brothers. We were the men that took you to prom when your date didnt’t show up. We are the men that stood beside you and respected you when the rest of the world wouldn’t recognize the beauty of the black woman When straight black men sometime forget your beauty even when straight black man didn’t respect the black woman we did. i would never join a fraternity or try to join an organization with such hatred. Your calling these kids sick because they chose to honor you. Why they chose such an ignorant group of people to follow is beyond me but please realize after all your sorority has endured over the last few years you might need to get with these young men and figure out how to remove the red stain on those pink and green sweaters. Let the record show as your sister phylicia rashad would say the day of the pretty girls in pearls are over…..pearls yes…..pretty not so much. and you religious fold realize that religion is the enemy of the savior our lord jesus christ if you spent more time trying ot save those that you are tyring ot condemn you would know that you are pulling a card that you are playing a dangerous game judge ye not lest ye be judged right why are you throwing stones mr or mrs….? no sin is greater than the other learn the word before you try to use it as a weapon to prove a point about people starting a line. But since this is open lets go HAve you religious people not CHRISTIANS a christian is known by the love they show and i do not see teh love i see hatred covered by a send off i.e. they can do what they want as a christian you guys don’t know how to minister to the homosexuals so you send them off did you ever stop to think about what you were before the lord delivered you WHAT WAS YOUR SIN. did you sleep witht your wife before you married her women do you wear make up thats a lie and how many other lies do you tella day DO NOT BRING GOD INTO THIS….

  63. The group is called miAKA not AKA…i do understand why yall mad, but i dont understand all the hate against the gays..Its plenty of other men that are afiliated with sororities like the Delta Gents, the Zeta Knights, and wat about the women in Alpha Phi Alpha, or Sigma’s….and the Kappa Sweethearts or the Iota Sweethearts….now when men wanna become part of the AKA’s its a big problem….

  64. And for all these frats talking about homosexuality is an abomination to god….NO SIN IS GREATER THAN ANOTHER…so if they going to hell for being gay, U going to hell for BEATING THE CRAP out of people that pledge ur line…dont try to act like black frats are just as saved as the pastor…most of yall pledge just to finally get sum pussy…so dont put GOD in this

  65. As an openly gay brother of the Kappa Alpha Psi, Inc. I am offended by the idea of men joining sororities. As far as I am concerned, sorority means sisterhood…just because we are gay does not make us women. Even if a man is feminine is is still no less a man.

    I agree that these pictures and videos shouldn’t continue circulation because they are only giving these young men free publicity. Gays haven’t always felt welcome in the Greek community and I understand the need to have your own but to steal your way into someone’s organization, one of which if you were straight you couldn’t be a part of, is just wrong on all parts.

    This stuff needs to stop now!

  66. So, onething I haven’t noticed is the idealogy of Kappas Sweethearts, Alpha Angels, Q-ies, Sigma Doves and ETC.
    Those are women who support the Fraternities, and although illegal, they absolutely have their own underground organization. And ironically, the frats support them as if they are apart of the organization. Now, I don’t view MIAKA’s as trying to be AKA’s, I view them as an underground part of AKA’s. They are the aux. NOW, if the MIAKA are not supporting the actual women on their campus, or have just randomly started a “chapter” THEN that pisses me off. However, if the AKA’s on the campus actually embraces the MIAKA’s and allows them to help then so be it. The SGRho’s had Rhomeos who started their own org. MIAKA’s might do the same and there is nothing we can do about it.

  67. @TERRY

    Just because you’re Gay doesnt mean you cant be in a fraternity. My Frat knew what was up and the bruhs brought me in like any other dude and welcomed me into the fold. Folks are using “gay” as an EXCUSE for not being accepted into Frats, but you have to let your accomplishments speak louder than your sexual orientation.

  68. What’s funny to me is Im actually interested in joining a Miaka line and its for the very reason you said that they weren’t real: community service class and self respect. As a gay male its nothing new to me to have people hate and try to single me out its 2010 you would think enough is enough.I could sit here and disrespect u like you have done the Miaka Frat. But like a Miaka that I plan on being I have class so I’m going to keep pushing through bc everybody know what don’t kill u makes you stronger!!!;-)

  70. Okay I would first like to say that I have never had a problem with people who are gay. I’m a professional dancer and I have been around gay people most of my life. However, knowing that a man is trying to be what I am is disturbing. Not only do I disagree with this, I’m disgusted. Miaka’s were originally the boyfriends of the (AKA’s) and when they said interested they meant wanting to help them, and be with them. This is WILD!!! As a women I feel disrespected, and any member of Alpha Kappa Alpha should be. AKA was founded in 1908 by 13 women. WOMEN!!!

  71. Being gay is an abomination, already! Now you want to be in an organization of women? You aren’t and will never be a woman, no matter how feminine you try to be!!!!! Get behind thee Satan!!!!! You need the Lord and holy oil pour over you. AKA is for women-bottom line! Stand up and be a man! Seek the Lord’s face, and He will reveal Himself and His truth for you.

  72. I know I’m late, but I just wanted to chime in. I am a MIAKA man, and am very proud of it, but our chapter is very different than the feminine men you see in the pictures, who were pearls, nail polish, and lip gloss. They indeed are attempting to imitate the first and the finest. Where as my chapter truley lives by our name “Men Intrested/ Into in AKA” Myself & most my line brothers date the Lovely Ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha, and have no desire of being them, we just support them in all their endevors. Not all chapters are GAY, no offence, but just keep an open mind to the ones who really intrested in marrying them, not borrowing their pearls.

  73. I think that is wrong to be portraying the AKAs or any sorority or fraternity that you are not apart of. I think it is like a slap in the face to the people that actually went through the pledging or other processes to be apart of the ACTUAL greek organization. I also agree with all the people who made the point about sororities being for women. Alpha Kappa Alpha has been for women since 1908 and hasn’t changed for anybody, and I don’t think they should start changing now either.

  74. this is a disgrace to ALL BLACK GREEK ORGANIZATIONS! This is history that you guys are DEFACING! The members of this particular chapter needs to be stripped of their letters because clearly they do not understand the true meaning of Alpha Kappa Alpha, sorority incorporated. They have disgrace there 12 original founders with this act! CLEARLY these girls that allowed these men to do such a thing joined this sorority under other motives. Where was the national chairs to regulate these acts; they should be ashamed of themselves.

  75. becouse i have new organization is alpha kappa theta like as AKAs this for high school at McCallum HS in texas into Austin hers color is PINK AND SILVER as rabbit-Ivy and also hers soundz is SKEEEE-YYEEPPP!!! that my ours high school Sorority. LOL i got it!!!

  76. …..lol reading these comments i can say its way more to the story then what ppl on here are aware of! Like for example i am a member of the divine nine and i am also a member of the gay community! #CaTchThosEt’S lol however…i have on numerous occasion seen with my own two eyes AKA’s(Women) Strolling and chanting in line with MiAKA’s and on one particular occasion witnessed a MiAKA “SET” for those of you who actually earned your letters…..now sum of you are still trying to figure it out, if this is so…umma leave it alone!!!

    after watching my first MiAKA probate this year at FAMU’s 2010 homecoming celebration…and partying with MOD bka Men of Destinction bka DELTA’s….also witnessed several WOMEN of DELTA SIGMA THETA encouraging, chanting, singing, Strolling with them!!!

    so u tell me who’s to blame……the men for being taught the information…or the women who in all these cases are LEGAL MEMBERS OF THE SORORITIES??????

    NOT TAKING SIDES, BUT IT SEEMS TO ME YOUR ANGER IS BEING MIS-DIRECTED!!!!!!!

    SAY, THINK, DO…WHATEVER U WANT BUT KNOW ALLLLLLLL FACTS BEFORE SLANDERING WHAT U DNT UNDERSTAND……B BLESSED FOLKS!

  77. I feel that that any Greek Organization that disrespects their own is very much out of line! I have nothing against the gay community. My best friend is gay, but he straight up knows that he is a MAN! Plain and simple, if you really wanted a organization do it upon realness! You all keep saying they are “Interested” its MIAKA! If you are interested you come to like and adore, its more like “Imitate” MIAKA. They will never go through the Intake Process, its not cute. Get your own, Inc. your own. Put up your own sign, have your own call, own chants, own crest, own HIStory, own founders. Conduct scholarship under a name that you can actually get credit for, support the communities around you under your own!!! If anything if you want to work support and be interested in My Sorority!!? Become man enough to do just that help support and stand side by side instead of jacking!!!
    SEEEEEEEERIOUSLY!
    SKEEEEEE WEE!
    Oh yeah I’m a Certified Financial Card Carrying Member ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA SORORITY INCORPORATED!

  78. For one I am a black gay male and I find it stupid for these MEN to go around imitating AKA’s. Point Blank Period you will never be recognized in the community unless you go to a gay club and more than half of you dont do it their because you are scared to get your ass whooped. Do I like AKA’s…yes. Do I idolize or wanna be one HELL NO I would rather be their brother and be able to throw up my sign in public without being looked at like I am stupid. I was even offered to pledge MIAKA I turned it down what do I look like going through a process and at the end I cant even walk in public and make a call when I see a fellow bruh/soror (how ever yall work it) or take a picture with the sign. Besides that they do it for all the wrong reasons cause they feel like its your calling ITS NOT…like someone said earlier where is your community service, where are your scholarships, where is the integrity? Pledge a Frat if you cant get in make your own Iota was founded in 1963 shit it may not be too late for yall but dont model yourself after something you will never be. Thats just my idea and how I see it at first it was weird now that shit is just disrespectful. In truth too some AKA’s do allow them to know the process, the history, the charges and that is something that AKA’s will have to deal with inside their own organization. Yet walking around doing the calls, throwing up signs, wearing colors on purpose, and spitting history is dumb cause you will never be the WOMEN that AKA are same as a drag queen. As for those who dont like gays that a different post for a different day just my intake on it.

  79. where do i even start on this subject!!!! FIRST OF ALL gay sorors. have been around for 20 plus years this is a subject that will never die!!! as my soror stated earlier you will never see a delta beaux on something like this lolz…!!! this is why i hate aka’s now yall put yal self above all the others which is why yo president walked out on yall sorry asses in the first place back n the day and if it wasnt for nellie yall wouldnt even exsist!!!! but back to the topic at hand i think this whole thing is stupid!!! miAKA they are representing for the akas so why bad mouth yall just mad cus they look better then u, they know they shit, and they strutt better then any of u ever will!!!! and to the kappa omg most kappas are gay!!! just becuase u c this on here u dont need to take ur anger out on all gay people i dont give a fuck!!!! thats just not right!! im gay and proud brotha and aint no bitch gon check me!!!! so the bad mouthing gays need to stop…yall can talk about us all u want to..BUT GUESS WHAT UR WORDS ARE ONLY MAKING OUR CHAPTERS STRONGER BABE WE HERE TO STAY AINT NOTHING U CAN DO ABOUT IT BUT KEEP TALKING SHIT over the internet!!! the whole thing really just needs to stop yal arent gonna win!! THEN END oooo-ppppp!!!

  80. AND FOF THE GAYS ON HERE COMMENTING who are against this yal need to stop commenting we are supposed to stick together against these bitches who say being gay gay is an abomination!!!! wtf really and fyi at my school we are recognized by the public and in the gay club so get yo facts straight!!!!

  81. ^^^I’m guessing that was for me so I will respond…1) this discussion isnt about being gay thats why I said thats another forum 2) place yourself in their shoes these woman have so much history behind their organization you are basically insulting them to come as a man who should be a frat member and say I can do this better than you. Thats like someone impersonating you and saying I look better I act better I dress better. We as African-Americans have lost our roots coming to this country from where we were shipped from and I mean that in a literal sense and these woman are making history of their own…why would you want to take that from them rather it be a male AKA, Delta, Zeta, SGRho it matters not that is who they are now dont get it confused as thats what makes them but they become part of this great legacy and gay men are tinting it trying to hard to be seen. Do I believe in equal rights yes do I believe that a woman should be a man or a man should be a woman in a organizational type way now. I respect you for being who you are but I dont respect who you protray yourself to me in a sense of a male Delta…and if you were trying to oooo-oop u missed an “o” after your dash. Just try to look at it from their point of view it is dishearting for someone who has no right and you have no right to pretend to be a Delta…and besides you didnt answer the question I asked where is the giving back to the community where is the scholarship where is your service or is it just fun and game to you??? And if your “group” is recognized at your school realize you are in one area not everyone is that understanding or just doesnt care but for those who put in work this is their child in a sense and you are insulting it. Im sorry like I said start your our FRAT since I take you are a male and have a mission and service to your community you may be right there arent all cute AKA’s, Delta’s, Zetas, & SGRho’s but they stand for something thing and they give back to the community and do all that is expected of them do you?

  82. miaka that cool just be a lil down low
    and only n closed gay settings
    im a man of alpha
    and i pledged male aka
    i like the best of both worlds but sorors
    let it a lil more undercover skee phi

  83. WHY DO PEOPLE THINK THEY PUT OTHER PEOPLE DOWN.. I MEAN HEY THESE GIRLS SHOULD BE HAPPY THAT SOMEBODY WANTS TO IMITATE THEM AND NOT LOOK DOWN ON THEM I MEAN HEY THIS MAY NOT BE RIGHT BUT ATLEAST THEY ARENT OUT KILLING AND GETTING IN JAIL..CALM DOWN CAUSE ITS CALL MIAKA MEANING THEY ARE INTERESTED IN ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA..

  84. Ok.. umm This is a disgrace to Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., I am 13 years old I would love to be allowed the oppurtunity to be apart if this oh so pretty sorority and I think this was a horrible idea. Now may i remind you this is only my opinion. This is disgusting and I think that they are disrespecting everything this sorority stands for. It is very disrespectful to hold up their signs and wear their colors.. Until you have been initiated you are not worthy. You all are men you should start you’re own faternity and allow it to grow 100 plus years. Which it probably won’t because it’s not in the will of God and it’s a sin. Hopefully you understand the wrong of your ways in enough time.

  85. I think this is just a crying shame, I feel like its disrespect to the WOMEN who worked hard to establish the AKAs, but for Prince Charming I am an Iota Sweetheart, and we are doing nothing like these men, we do not think we are iotas, we do not hold up their signs. We are an auxiliary group that was established because the very first Sweetheart helpped the Iotas become apart of the NPHC by doing the paper work. We do not go online, we are just supporters of the Iota in my case I was on the court running for Miss Iota Phi Theta for Homecoming, so get your facts right, we are in no way doing what these men are doing.

  86. As women we went through many trials to get to where we are today. Long ago it was called women suffrage but in that geat year of 1920 women were recognized for more than wives and that idiotic saying there are two places for a women on her back and in the kitchen. Crazy!!!! I am not a member of any sorority but I am speaking from the view of a women. I have family members who are active members of AKA. Just as a stock-holder invest into a company, and receives great benefits. It is the same for the ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha they have invested their time, money, and their lives to their sorority. As they say I did not choose AKA, AKA chose me. What have you done or what work have you put in to gain any respect? I am not saying that you can not have your own organization, but make it your own. Life alone is a struggle but I have realized those that struggle become stronger people. If you have to struggle to get your own organization, just think when you do gain your own how all that hard work will pay off. A determined mind can make a dream come to reality. I choose to be different, I choose to be free, I choose to be whatever God plans for me to be. God bless and lets choose to have an independent mind!!!!! When I look in the mirror I see me, but when I look real hard there is a little pink and green coming out me.

  87. Man ya’ll should be greatful that they are interested in your sorority, im not sayin its right but it is a compliment more then a disrespectful event. it is plenty of sororities out there but they find urs the most appealing, Thats love in my eyes, now i see if they was makin fun of ya’ll thts different but its all outta love

  88. And you forget the pain and suffrage that Gays still go through till this day, if anything they went through WAY more pain then ANYONE on here like i said not sayin its right just disagree about the right reasons and not the stupid ones #ThatIsAll

  89. TO QUOTE STONEWALL, THE BRITISH LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, & TRANSGENDER EQUAL RIGHTS CAMPAIGN GROUP:
    “SOME PEOPLE ARE BORN GAY.
    GET OVER IT!!!”
    To all you black brothers & sisters who are either “queer” or queer-friendly, Please don’t bother reading the rest of this response, because it doesn’t apply to in the slightest, teen weeny bit, at all!!!
    But to the rest of you folks, When The Hell are you going to grow up & realise that (whether you like it or not) a proportion of your own community are going to turn out to be lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transvestites, transexuals etc??? Just grow the f*ck up, will you?!? And DO bear in mind that this includes members of your own birth family or extended family…….. Yes it does!!!
    I live in inner city london, in an area where the black community are a large & vital part of our general community; I am so glad that over the last few years my area is beginning to change, that there is now Much greater Tolerence towards the gay men living there… & that includes Me! When I moved into my apartment in 1995, not a day went by when I did Not receive homophobic insults & even threats of violence from black men & women…….. & that was when I was just trying to go about my business, shopping for food, etc…. in the street where I live……….. well nowadays that just doesn’t happen…….. & it is such a relief……… In the past I have ALWAYS responded to such hatred & threats by saying things like:
    “I’m certain that as a black person you do not like terms like Nigger, Coon, Wog etc?????? Well people like me don’t like terms like ‘Batty Man’, Puff, bender, homo…etc……..if you want to tell me I’m gay, well, I’m a middle aged man, ferr Christ’s sake >>> Tell me something I don’t f*cking know! AND I HAPPEN TO BE VERY PROUD OF IT, AS WELL!!!
    I was brought up by my parents to question the prejudices held in the society I lived in, & was told that people should live & let live………… YOU were obviously not brought up by decent Christian folks like my parents, were you??? AND THE NEXT TIME YOU DECIDE TO GO SHOPPING, & DECIDE TO THROW HOMOPHOBIC INSULTS AT ME, I’LL KICK THE SH*T OUT OF YOU, SO I WILL, THEN I’LL RIP YERR F*CKING HEAD OF & SH*T IN THE HOLE, UNDERSTOOD?!?”
    YOU SEE, NOT ALL OF US GAYS ARE PASSIVE PANSIES WHO DON’T KNOW HOW TO LOOK AFTER OURSELVES…………….. YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT THE NEXT TIME YOU CONSIDER THROWING YOUR OWN SHAME AT ANY OF US ON YOUR LOCAL STREETS………
    I have many gay friends who also happen to be black; With some of them, I have listened while they have talked about the pain they suffer from never being able to come out to their own mothers & fathers…………. there own biological, as well as racial, brothers & sisters……… the way that some of them have (with great emotional & spiritual pain) decided to either cut themselves off from their birth families or maintain a very great distance from them……………………..
    So there it is, all you Homophobic, biggoted, prejudiced black people >>> do you really want to condemn the black ‘queer’ members of your own racial & cultural community to a life of feeling isolated from their roots, from where they came from??? & if we look at recent gay teenaged suicides in the ‘wonderful’ USA (land of the f*cking Free >>>yeah, right!) if YOU end up having kids of your own one of these days, & if one or more of them turns out to be lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, are YOU prepared to freeze them out of your lives? Will you be prepared to send that child of yours away the moment it reaches adult maturity & tell him or her you want nothing more to do with them??? Well if that’s the case, you are Trash in the extreme……. & if that’s the case then you really are NO Christian………… Christianity has a God of Love at it’s centre…………. telling your kids to get out of your life & not come back is nothing what so ever to do with Love, but is in fact the worst act of HATE that a parent could ever, ever put into practice…………. If you decide to respond with hatred if ever one of your own kids comes out to you as gay, I do hope you’ll be able to cope if you find out one day that they have committed suicide……….

  90. wow….@ Phillip Allan….what a touching story….I am so sorry for those awful things that were said to you coming from a Christian…just because you are Gay that does not mean that God loves you any less….however, the bible does speaks concerning homosexuality….God hates the sin but he certainly does not hate the person….who are we to judge only God knows your heart! :-) be strong we are all dealing with issues in our very own lives so then who are we to judge….God Bless you & I tell you this God honors your honesty! he really does! & he loves you sooooo much! have a great an awesome day!

    Latorra W.

  91. I loved what youve completed here. The design is elegant, your content classy. But, youve got an edginess to what youre providing here. Ill definitely come back for more in case you keep this up. Dont lose hope if not too many people see your vision, know youve got a fan right here who values what youve got to say and also the way youve presented yourself. Excellent on you!

  92. Hi Latorra W. , it’s great to see words from a Christian who is not hateful towards the Homosexual Community, I really do mean that! But, Sweetie, who are YOU to say who God Loves, & who God Hates? Who are YOU to say that your God hates this sexual act or that sexual act….??? Shouldn’t we just leave that up to your God???
    I’m a Nicherin Buddhist (yes, the same branch of Buddhism that Tina Turner has been involved with for many years, which features in the movie “Tina, What’s Love Got To Do With It?”) & as a Nicherin Buddhist, I’m very lucky to be able to say that I count many Black Men & Women, & Many Black heterosexual & homosexual fellow Buddhists here in inner city South London as my ‘colleagues in Faith’ & as friends; I was very lucky that many years ago now, my close Friend, a Black Bhuddhist heterosexual woman composer & musician, paid me the great honour of introducing me to her wonderful Christian Mother, Mrs Celestine Davy; Mrs Davy, she always was to me; She’s now in a much better place, having passed on in 2002; Her roots were in Ghiana, where, as a very young woman, she decided to train to become a Seventh Day Adventist Christian Pastor; All Power to her, she moved to Trinidad & did indeed become a Pastor in the Christian Faith; And many years later, having lived in London for oh-so-long, she told me of how upset & angry she was with the old black men & women at her elderly persons social centre for the way in which they so negatively judged the sweet gay man who turned up to tutor their sewing & needle work classes; She said to them “YOU MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!!! IT’S BETWEEN HIM & HIS GOD!!! YOU MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, NOW!!!”
    And she stopped the nasty remarks & judgements & gossip they were spreading about him right in it’s tracks. You see, according to Your Religion you should leave all judgements to Your God, & not be making them yourself!!!
    Now, as a Buddhist, I’m taught that I should respect other peoples’ faiths, & I really do try my best to do just that; But, at times (I am only human after all, & I do so detest prejudice of ANY kind!!!) I find that one a tall order indeed! ………..All this “The Bible says……………The Bible says……… The Bible says………………………” I do hope you are aware that The Bible was abused by the White Racist leaders of South Africa during the terrible Apartheid years to JUSTIFY APARTHEID???
    And Latorra, darling, if you really insist that we all should do exactly what the bible says, then I DO HOPE THAT DURING YOUR MONTHLY MENSTRUATION YOU DO INDEED GO TO YOUR NEAREST ORTHODOX JEWISH RITUAL BATHS TO CLEANSE YOURSELF ON CERTAIN DAYS???
    & (I don’t know whether you have children of your very own or will do one of these days) if your eldest son continually & willfully disobeys his father, I DO HOPE YOU WON’T MIND IF YOUR HUSBAND TAKES HIM OUT TO THE DESERT & STONES HIM TO DEATH??? You see, Latorra, these are all things that your precious Bible says you must indeed do to be a Christian. It also says that you must go to your nearest place where Prostitutes work on the street, & that when you’re there you should stone those people to death!!! ARE YOU WILLING TO STONE YOUR LOCAL PROSTITUTES TO DEATH??? THEN THERE ARE OTHER COMMANDS FROM THE BIBLE:
    IF A MAN IS HAVING AN ARGUMENT WITH HIS NEIGHBOUR & HIS WIFE JOINS IN & GRABS THE NEIGHBOUR BY THE TESTICLES, THEN SHE MUST BE PUT TO DEATH, ACCORDING TO YOUR BIBLE………………………………. TO ME THAT SOUNDS LIKE A REALLY HARSH PUNISHMENT FOR A WOMAN WHO HAS MERELY GRABBED HER NEIGHBOUR BY THE BALLS……………………….
    THERE IS ONE BIG STORY IN THE OLD TESTAMENT WHERE GOD, APPARENTLY NEGATIVELY JUDGES MEN OF A CERTAIN TOWN FOR WANTING TO RAPE THEIR GUESTS, WHO WERE APPARENTLY MEN OF GOD……… & THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT…………NOT THAT YOUR GOD CONDEMNED THOSE MEN FOR WANTING TO HAVE HOMOSEXUAL SEX, BUT FOR WANTING TO RAPE THOSE MEN OF GOD…………………..
    LATORRA, DARLIING, I F YOU ARE GOING TO INSIST, AS A CHRISTIAN, THAT ALL CHRISTIANS FOLLOW THE EXACT WORDS OF THE BIBLE, THEN YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW
    A L L THE COMMANDS IN THE BIBLE, NOT JUST THE COMMANDS, & WORDS & DICTATES THAT SUIT Y O U , OTHER WISE YOU’RE BEING WHAT’S KNOWN AS A HYPOCRITE………
    LIKE MANY FOLKS, I WAS BROUGHT UP CHRISTIAN (BUT DECIDED TO CHANGE TO ANOTHER FAITH) …………………… I’VE TAKEN SOME OF THE THINGS I LEARNED AS A KID & AS A TEEN IN OUR FAMILY CHURCH WITH ME INTO MY ADULT & MIDDLE AGED LIFE:
    “DO NOT JUDGE LEST YEE BE JUDGED!”
    “DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOURSELVES”
    &, OF COURSE, THE CHRISTIAN GOD IS SUPPOSED TO BE A “GOD OF LOVE”……….. WELL, IF SHE’S A GOD OF LOVE, I AM ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN SHE WON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE FACT THAT I MAKE LOVE TO MY LOVELY BOYFRIEND ON A REGULAR BASIS………..
    DON’T YOU THINK YOUR GOD HAS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT THAN WHETHER A MAN PUT HIS ‘PETER’ INSIDE ANOTHER MAN’S ASS A FEW TIMES A WEEK??? SEE YOU IN HEAVEN, DARLING????????????????????

  93. baidu678, thank You for your very positive comments & feedback, & for your wonderful affirmation & support!!! I’ve always believed that the truth must come out…………………………………

  94. well personally this all boils down to one simple fact THEY ARE GAY MEN and thats all everyone is harping on but if it was lesbians or if it were straight females wanting to be omega’s then this wouldnt be an issue . . . its sad that even in the greek world there are prejudices with orientation.

  95. @ Phillip….:-) thanks for your reply!!! & yes I am a Christian & I am very proud of who I am….I’m not trying to attack the Gay community that is the last thing I would do…..for I know several gay men that were my close friends…I still love them for who they are….I do not judge! I do apologize if you were offended by my comment…I try to be as honest as I can….:-) God gives everyone a freedom of choice! & for the scripture concern Sir! you took that way out of context!!! I specifically learn by a King James Bible…however, God is good all the time! & I hope that you will truly find Peace Sir! God Bless You & keep You!

  96. I know that this was posted a VERY long time ago but I am still going to leave my comment for the idiots that are getting mad about this I dont think they understand that Females AKA’s started the MIAKA’s and I dont think they understand that Female AKA’s actually help pledge the MIAKA’s come on lets get it together….and for those of you gay bashing lets get that together to just because you dont agree with these dudes do not give you the right to gay bash I think you guys seem to forget you are not God you have no right to judge anybody….

  97. “Coolmichael” ? You don’t sound very cool to me… In fact, you sound very angry & stressed up about men who enjoy sucking each others’ dicks….. Why are you so wound up about the whole subject? I strongly suspect that, like most homophobic men, you are in fact a closet gay yourself.
    I know loads of true heterosexual guys who are completely ‘cool’ about gay people existing in this world; Unlike you, they have nothing to prove, & they don’t feel threatened by homosexuality.

  98. first off i dont believe in the Gay life style but i dont hate anyone one for what they like on the otther hand I dont care what anyone thinks this is not right Women have fought to be independent and have something to call their own and no one has to write to try and branch off on the A.K.A.s this is disturbing

  99. I have read all of these comments and i say wow some of you are taking this way too far but on the other hand the wonderful ladies of alpha kappa alpha sorority inc. has all right to get mad i agree they are taking everything that aka’s stand for and degrading it. dont get me wrong i have no problem with gay people or gay lifestyle however i think that trying to portray yourself as an alpha LADY is taking it way too far like most of the aka’s that commented on here said. imitating them and there style is wrong they worked hard for those letters and i can understand if you admire them so much and you want to have a sisterhood like that and thats good for you more power to you but if you admire them and want to be like them so much you should understand how disrespectful that is to them if you want to have a sorority/fraternity a sorfratnity whatever you want to call it that has the same standards so to say of akas then make one a whole new one dont copy the akas be original.

  100. Get a grip!!! Half of you t-shirt wearers didn’t know what the hell a Greek letter was before you joined your “precious” sorority or fraternity; and even still, MOST of you can’s spell the Greek letters either. As a member of, and a gay one at that, of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., I can honestly say this doesn’t bother me. I have always had a problem with how black folk join these organizations and let it take over them as a person. Who gives a shit what they do or what colors they use? Did it stop any of you from doing the service your organization demands? Were you not able to complete your studies because of them? Did your sister stop being your sister? Or did you all forget that’s what you REALLY are about in the first place. Debating whether or not these dudes are right or wrong is asinine and trivial; but I’ve come to expect much less from black Greeks anyway. It amazed me then and amazes me more now that I’m done with undergrad how sensitive a subject this is for all you folks. Did you not have a life before you joined? When you were “made” were you really made into something or someone you never were in the first place. Cry about Trayvon and his biased case. Cry about the devastation these earthquakes have been causing across the world. Argue about the Tea Party; regardless, please let the things you take the time out of your day to be concerned about reflect the ideals of your respective fraternity/sorority and let other shit be. You can’t stop them… your sign and call are not trademarked so stop being on these forums losing looking stupid and being mad about something you have no control over. Joining AKA was not a ‘fight’ for you and no one is taking your stripes away!

    Now on to all these fellas with small penises “gloating” or overcompensating, I should say, because they wear three letters on their chest too. GET THE F@CK OUTTA HERE!!! Homophobia is a good way to cover up the obvious; P.S. we can still tell you wanna suck a d!ck too. You look even more foolish in here arguing the point for these “women” who are so upset by this notion. Where dey do dat at?! Ignoring the fact that AKA doesn’t have a brother organization, what the hell do you gain from coming to their defense AND even more unsettling of a question, why the f@ck do you care?!?!? Their national organization issued statements on how they felt about it and instructed their sisterhood on how to respond. All 200+ of these comments are for that reason non-muthafu@king factors!!

    Foolish black people and their damn fraternity/sorority crap… you realize we are the only ones that care about this right?! #WasteOfTime

  101. by god it is extremely disrespectful to immitate AKA’S or any other group for that matter. no originality or class because your probate is in a freakin driveway and the lights got shut off. its not a matter of being gay or straight because gays are black greek too, its a tradition that is almost spit on almost. join a real frat or make an offical one BECAUSE AKA’Salready have brothers alphas by founding, kappas because pretty boys like pretty girls and vice versa. they may not be hurting anyone but the embarrass themselves publicly pretending to be something they are not and they disrespect the heritage behind AKA. they deface real aka’s who earned the right to wear their letters. dont confuse things for future generations who consider joining sororities because its VERY OFFENSIVE

  102. Andrew, let me explain a few things to you, & to the other Homophobic members of the Black Community who have commented here:
    ‘DRAG’ IS A MAJOR PART OF LESBIAN, GAY & BISEXUAL CULTURE AT IT’S BEST & MOST COLORFUL:
    Even You probably realize that not ALL Lesbians, Gays & Bisexuals drag up, But for those who do, their dragging up is most definitely not done out of disrespect towards the real people they imitate, or the fictitious characters they create!
    For Centuries, some Gay Men have Dragged up as Women;
    FOR EXAMPLE, Drag queens have often Dragged up as the great Barbra Streisand;
    You can bet your bottom dollar that any gay man who drags up at Ms Streisand not only adores her Music, her Talent & her Beauty, but is only doing it
    AS A TRIBUTE TO HER……………………………..
    And I will repeat, to all of my black brothers & sisters who are homophobic, to all of you who are born again/evangelical Christians:
    YOUR GOD MADE US LESBIAN OR GAY OR BISEXUAL!
    WE WERE NOT BORN HETEROSEXUAL & CHOSE TO GO GAY!
    WE WERE BORN THIS WAY,
    JUST AS YOU WERE BORN HETEROSEXUAL!!!
    WHY DON’T YOU FOLKS JUST GET OVER YOURSELVES???
    I FEEL IT IS VERY SAD INDEED TO SEE BLACK PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELVES, MEMBERS OF A VERY, VERY LARGE & SERIOUSLY OPPRESSED MINORITY GROUP, OPPRESSING THE LESBIAN, GAY & BISEXUAL MEMBERS OF ANOTHER OPPRESSED MINORITY GROUP!
    I AM N O T TALKING TO THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE GAY OR GAY-FRIENDLY, BUT I A M TALKING TO THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE INDEED PREJUDICED & BIGOTED & OPPRESSIVE TOWARD M Y PEOPLE,
    I SAY TO YOU YET AGAIN:
    “WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO IF OR WHEN YOUR OWN CHILD TURNS OUT TO BE LESBIAN, GAY OR BISEXUAL???
    ARE YOU GOING TO BE PREJUDICED TOWARDS THE CHILD WHO CAME FROM YOUR VERY OWN LOINS OR FROM YOUR VERY OWN WOMB???
    I DO HOPE NOT!!!

    “DO NOT JUDGE LEST YEE BE JUDGED”

    WHO WAS IT WHO SAID THAT???
    OH, YES, I REMEMBER NOW; IT WAS JESUS CHRIST, WASN’T IT?!?

  103. Wearing/using fraternity and sorority paraphernalia without permission is illegal. For me I don’t care if you sleep with ashcans. They can form their own organization and apply for membership to the panhellenic society. They would have a valid suit to sue for discrimination if denied, but i doubt that they would be. I would fight for their inclusion in panhellenic.
    Anti discrimination laws only apply to PUBLIC VENUES AND ORGANIZATIONS. Private clubs can have what ever membership they want. I thought that black people knew this. As Alpha Kappa Alpha is a private, closed organization they can have whatever membership criterion they wish.

  104. and to clarify, paraphernalia use includes using the name, logo, and associated symbols of any fraternity or sorority

  105. As a Woman I feel as if this is just an attempt for a certain group of gay men to announce their presence in the world. I love Alpha Kappa Alpha in every way and I do understand why a FEMALE or MALE would love to be apart of it but it is a sorority and it is INCORPORATED. Allowing men to be members is like allowing our colors, name, and image to be changed. What makes them different from the previous members who wanted change.(And by no way is this to attack the ladies of Delta Sigma Theta but that is the history). Accepting men is like accepting little boys into the girls scouts. Let me be clear this is not a heterosexual vs. homosexual dispute nor is it truly about discrimination. Its about principles. I am aware the world is changing but that is what makes it easier to form other Greek-letter organizations that will openly accept their target population. As a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha, I am truly offended and shocked to see these men even try to penetrate and organization but ripping out the very foundation that it rests on.
    Women will never be in the NBA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Homosexual is really more of a lifestyle people live rather than a sexual preference like male or female.

    For clarification for those that don’t understand undergrad life:
    MIAKA’s were an auxiliary group NOT organization
    The purpose for them is to help the members of Alpha Kappa Alpha handle business like cleaning and setting up community service projects. They never know intimate details of the sorority nor do they make decisions or attend meetings. They are really more of a group of guys who are interested in the Greek life get a taste of the Greek world to see if they are interested in more than wearing colors, parties, or calls. If they receive any information its probably the stuff available online but every organization has its own traditional that are not to be written.

  106. WHAT!!!??? they cant file a law suite!!! thats RIDICULOUS!!! thats just like saying, because he’s gay, he can use the womans bathroom!!! so what, they are going to file a law suite against society in order to use the womans bathrooms now!!! This is a WOMANS ONLY club!!! it was founded by girls, for girls!!! if the boys want to make their own FRATERNITY then let them do that! Just tell them to make a “gay fraternity” that has the same, or relativly the same principals as the sorority as the AKA’s. I really wanted to become a aka, but now im not so sure… I dont want to join a sorority who doesnt stand by its original values. come on people!!! think!!! make your own group if you dont feel accepted!!! WHY DO YOU THINK THE DELTA’S FORMED??? they are a rival/rebel group from the aka’s!!! because one of the members did not want to follow what the other girls were doing, she didnt file a lawsuite!!! she left and started her OWN… so why are you making such a big fuss about it when you can be original and unique and just start YOUR OWN!!! Im so serious if the AKA’s dont stand up and dont hold their values, im starting MY OWN TOO…

    Note: I love LGBT people. but i do not like stupidity.

  107. Dear “GOD IS LOVE!!!!!”
    Get a life dear! Get a Life! No one is trying to threaten your precious society! This is just a case of a few gay guys getting together & camping it up, some
    in drag, some not in drag………….. NO ONE EVER DIED OF IT, NOW, DID THEY?!? (AS MY FRIEND’S WISE OLD IRISH CATHOLIC MUM USED TO SAY)……….. PERHAPS YOU COULD TAKE UP STAMP COLLECTING OR TRAIN SPOTTING OR PLANE SPOTTING OR MAYBE EVEN MAKE YOURSELF AN ALL AMERICAN ‘GOD-BOTHERING’ QUILT………………… but please do something, as you really do need to get your mental, spiritual & emotional act together if you feel so very threatened by a few drag queens & their friends having a bit of good old camp fun……..and let’s face it, they started doing this a few years ago now, & the sky certainly hasn’t fallen down yet, has it, dear? Have you ever considered taking prozac or tranquilizers?

  108. I’m from TSU and I have thought about joining AKA since I was 11. The news of Men with homosexuality trying to join AKA can ruin the sorority they admire reputation. I have nothing against Homosexuals but they should just make their own organization instead of trying to destroy the AKA sorority, which has been established since 1908 for about 104 years. Really They have already established their own organization MIAKAs, change the colors, signs.

  109. I am a 59 year old teacher of 39 years, mother of a now deceased son, grandmother of two beautiful grandsons, oldest sister of three Deltas and aunt of two college graduate Deltas and I am NOT and have really never been interested in pledging to become a member of any sorority. I highly respect and commend all those who do for the right reasons- community service, African American tradition, sisterhood and brotherhood, etc. I have absolutely nothing against homosexuals lifestyles as long as THEIR lifestyle doesn’t interfere with the lifestyles of mine and others. However, in this case, I feel that these young men are not only interfering but stealing, defacing and humiliating an African American institution which was established through the blood, hardwork and sacrifice of men and women (especially in this case) years ago and has survived and thrived to the forefront of our African-American culture! How dare you attempt to piggyback on such an established female institution while at the same time bring shame on yourselves? You appear to be unable to develop your own institution- just a bunch of juvenile little boys who can only go out and steal from something alway established. You need to build your own foundation starting with a unique charter, colors, symbols and whatever else needed to build an organization. You BOYS would be taken more seriously if you took the inititiative to do the work as real MEN. My prayers go out to you for the needed guidance and strength to get what you want and leave these SISTAS be because apparently you don’t have enough faith in SISTAS to be with them outside a sorority connection. GOD BLESS and GUIDE you!

  110. I really at first didnt care at all about this untill i read majority of the comments firstly i my self would love to be in a fraturnity one day and i fell to each his own but honestly there are plenty of US homosexuals who are excpted into the fraturnitys and if its the image that you want to give off then you should join a frat that has some of the same traits even tho your supposed to be pledging for other reasons stronger than the look.

  111. well iam a man of KAPPA ALPHA PSI and i come from a very long line of black greek and i feel as the AKA’s should be happy someone is trying to follow in their feet step n half of yall thats on here talking all this bs about the Miaka’s dont even know half of the shit we n i mean BLACK GREEKS have to go thru to even wear those latter one our chest so i give the biggest up 2 any who feel they have what it takes to be in a FRATENITY or sorority

  112. First and foremost let me say that I am an African-Americann woman of God. I am also a lesbian who takes pride in herself and allows no one (male or female) to disrespect me. If my sexuality is a problem for you then it looks like you need to go have you a little woosa moment so you can get your shockras & auras back in balance. Ok so I have heard all of the hype on this topic for quite a while now. Phillip Allan, PLEASE STAND UP!!!!!!! You need to write a book baby. More people need to hear your words.

    I myself, am a 25 years young woman who wishes to go through the MIP of the illustrious and oh so pretty women of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. Do I allow what these young men have done deter me from the decision I made back when I was 15 years old? No I do not. What these men choose to do is strictly on them. I do, however, feel that, if they did not, it would have been respectful & considerate of them to ask the permission of the sorority in which they are ” interested” or “imitating” if it would be ok to use their signature call, colors, etc. Although we all know the answer to that would have more than likely been no, it still would’ve shown a sign of consideration & respect. Now upon receiving that “no”, these men should have then put their brilliant minds together & come up with their own organization. I will not say that these young men are being disrespectful in the sense that they admire the women of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. However, I do feel that it is disrespectful to take something and, in a sense, call it your own. If you love & admire the women of this sorority as you say you do, do not steal or copy their legacy & tradition. Come up with an organization that, at the same time, honors them, but does not copy them.

    I love my LGBT community & support them in every way possible, but do I understand the frustration of the sorority, of course I do. Do I understand the frustration of the other Greeks, of course I do. However, I do not condone, appreciate, nor am I amused by/at the harsh, bigoted, derogatory comments towards the homosexual community. If you do not “approve” (not that it’s needed, cared or asked for) of the LGBT community or lifestyle, tough cookie. If you want to stress yourself out over how someone else lives “THEIR LIFE”, then please be my guest. I guarantee they will still get a full night’s rest. For those that choose to be so judgmental but then want to “TRY” to quote words of the Bible, before doing so please make sure that you are not just quoting parts that only suit you & your lifestyle. I don’t know what your Bible tells you, but mine tells me that no one sin is greater than the next (mathematically sin=sin) no matter how you may “WANT” it to go. If being homosexual is such sin, then I believe you eating that ham you ate this past Thanksgiving was also a sin. For those who play sports, touching that football or basketball, is also a sin. For the parents that disown their children, for whatever reason, is that too, not a sin? I really don’t think y’all wanna go there bout what is a sin.

    See most of you sit back & talk about what this person or that person does, how they live their lives, and so on. Did you catch the memo about gossiping being a sin? As long as my God knows my heart, your opinions, cracks/jokes, side comments, eye rolls, etc. do not matter to me. See what you don’t realize is that with all the ugly faces you make on the outside, it also makes you ugly on the inside. Just as Phillip Allan said, this has been going on for quite some time now & the world is still moving. Let it be & move on. Disrespectful, they may be, but harming anyone, no. Disrespect is something that will be around after we are all gone from this Earth, so all we can do is live for ourselves. For the women of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. that got on here with their homosexual slurs, I pray for you. As we all have our own opinions about these young men, it, in no way, makes it right to bash their sexuality or them as men. I indeed understand that you may be or have been upset by the situation, but know that by doing so, you only fueled an already ignited flame that needed to be put out. I ask that God would bless you all (anyone who commented negatively on this forum, be it towards homosexuals or in any other way) & that he remove the hatred you carry in your hearts. I ask that He touches you & reminds you that we are all His children. To hate one another is to hate your Father & creator. Be blessed & keep in mind that love God is to love one another.

  113. I was just asked on Sunday by a member of this organization when I was gonna join them. I laughed it off but deep inside Im interested but at the same time…its like “why cant I just join a frat?” Yeah Im a gay man but that doesnt mean that I cant be accepted into an organization that accepts me for me.Then…it hit me….maybe the reason why some of these guys who are protraying one of the most prominent female NPHC organizations to ever hit the yard is because maybe at one point they tried to join the frat they thought they wanted to join and that frat would accept them for who they are and not WHAT they are but were turned away. See, I think theres more to this story that people are telling. and my question is….what is so different between a “MIAKA” as they call it and a drag queen? Females seem to love seeing a drag perform yet get mad at a man expressing his love for her sorority.

  114. oh yeah and one more thing….im sure I can spot HALF of yall at a Beyonce concert. and coming from a die hard Bey fan…..she bites off of people all the time. so once again….whats the difference??
