This is a list of LGBT and LGBT-friendly fraternities and sororities. Such groups have existed since the 1980s, with Delta Phi Upsilon being established in 1985 and Delta Lambda Phi in 1986. They are intended to provide members with access to Greek life without fear of homophobic reprisal or behavior by fellow members, resulting from a history of homophobia within longer-established organizations. This is not an exhaustive list.

Organizations for women

Many national organizations have created LGBT-inclusive membership policies. In the National Panhellenic Conference, Delta Phi Epsilon is explicitly open to trans and non-binary individuals,[1] and sororities open to any individual who identifies as a woman include: Alpha Chi Omega,[2] Alpha Delta Pi,[3] Alpha Epsilon Phi,[4] Alpha Sigma Tau,[5] Chi Omega,[6] Delta Gamma,[7] Gamma Phi Beta,[8] Kappa Alpha Theta,[9] Kappa Delta,[10] Kappa Kappa Gamma,[11] Phi Sigma Sigma,[12] Sigma Sigma Sigma,[13] and Theta Phi Alpha.[14] Sororities open to any individual who identifies and lives as a woman include: Alpha Gamma Delta,[15] Alpha Omicron Pi,[16] Alpha Xi Delta,[17] Delta Delta Delta,[18] Pi Beta Phi,[19] Sigma Delta Tau,[20] and Sigma Kappa,[21] while Zeta Tau Alpha specifies that the individual must "consistently" identify and live as a woman.[22]

Several LGBT-specific or inclusive organizations also exist:

The Society of Femmes - private organization for multicultural lesbian, bisexual, straight, feminine women
