Lambda 10 Project

The Lambda 10 Project is a national clearinghouse of information pertaining to LGBT issues in American fraternities and sororities. The organization works to heighten the visibility of out members (chiefly university students), and offers educational resources related to sexual orientation and the fraternity/sorority experience.

The Lambda 10 Project was founded in the autumn of 1995 at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana; it is currently headquartered in the University's Office of Student Ethics and Anti-harassment Programs.

Among the organization's offerings are an index of lecturers available for events; lists of forums concerning LGBT "Greek life"; and a repository of magazine articles, websites, and pertinent news stories. Working with the renowned LGBT publisher Alyson Publications, Lambda 10 also compiled and released three anthologies of homosexual and bisexual students' Greek experiences: Out on Fraternity Row: Personal Accounts of Being Gay in a College Fraternity (1998), Secret Sisters: Stories of Being Lesbian and Bisexual in a College Sorority (2001) and Brotherhood: Gay Life in College Fraternities (2005).
