Format: Paperback
This is a great book that follows "Out on Fraternity Row". Although I have yet to read every account in this book, the diversity of these men's experiences makes the reader grab hold of reality and realize how "taboo" society has made homosexuality and how society is progressing and in some ways not progressing, even regressing. This book is a must have and a great teaching tool against homophobia and it sheds light on the fact that gays are normal people. BUY IT!

Score another victory for the gay Greeks. This 2nd installment takes the groundbreaking work of "Out on Fraternity Row" to a higher level. This book manages to be informative, educational, and even a bit sexy. All in all, a good read.

Format: Paperback
This anthology of stories is a must-read for any person working with fraternity and sorority members. The experiences shared are heartfelt, sincere, comforting and eye-opening to the experience of men discovering their identity in the midst of a college fraternity experience. Just as well done as "Out on Fraternity Row", but even more powerful.

Format: Paperback
"Brotherhood: Gay Life In College Fraternities" is the follow up to "Out on Fraternity Row", yet it delves deeper into the secrets of gay men who, in order to find acceptance in themselves and in life, immerse themselves in the college fraternal system. The tales that emerge from their travels are sometimes heart warming and amusingly annecdotal; occasionally filled with guilt, lonliness and rejection; often met with acceptance and brotherly love; and above all true. The prevailing message is that hope and love lies at the end of the tunnel.

The many authors who share their stories in this collection are not full time writers, but men who wanted to open themselves and their experience for future generations. College men and women involved in the Greek system should definitely read this book, they may identify with the stories or situations. It should also be a must read for any man or woman who now or at one time in their life found themselves struggling to find love and acceptance, gay or otherwise.
