*There’s a Greek lesbian sorority called Omicron Psi Omega that’s serving the life of the brothers of Omega Psi Phi, and many find their efforts quite offensive and their motives suspect.
The women have appropriated many of the aspects of the “Divine 9” fraternity, and acceding to their website:
“Omicron Psi Omega, Incorporated was founded on April 21, 2000, in the beautiful city of Tallahassee, FL. We are a Greek organization that prides ourselves in embracing women who self-identify as aggressive, dominant, or masculine within the LGBT community. This Bruh-therhood is like none other. We believe in our family. We also encourage professionalism, advocacy, and the idea that we can uplift our community by leaning on one another for support, motivation and love.”
The women step like Ques, dress like Ques and even exhibit the same behavior that one would see from the men of Omega Psi Phi. But these are not all college students in the organization; the majority of them are adult women who wear male clothing and openly identify as lesbian. The message to some is a confusing one of gender identity and the theft of the traditions of a predominately Black male organization that was founded in 1911 on the campus of Howard University.
