We are delighted to report that Grahaeme’s research has been published in the most recent edition of the Journal of College Student Development. This is a premier, peer-reviewed academic journal in the field of higher education. The article is entitled Experiences and Perceptions of Gay and Bisexual Fraternity Members From 1960 to 2007: A Cohort Analysis. This article forms part of a substantial list of publications that Grahaeme has produced over the years in the area of LGBT campus experiences, particularly with reference to Greek life.
The abstract reads: The study included 337 self-identified gay and bisexual fraternity members, with 170 joining their chapters in the year 2000 or after, 99 joining their chapters between the years 1990 and 1999, and 68 joining in the year 1989 or before. Participants who self-identified as gay or bisexual men and who joined in the year 2000 or after reported a more positive experience overall as fraternity members than did the participants who joined at any time prior. Each new cohort showed movement toward a more accepting environment for gay or bisexual individuals. The data suggest that the fraternity environment is increasingly becoming more accepting of gay and bisexual individuals and the LGBT community.
