Sororities stand up for female spaces during rush
Grant Sikes, a male student at the University of Alabama who self-identifies as 'non-binary,' recently went through UA’s sorority rush. In the end, however, no sorority invited him to join.
According to official UA sorority regulations, students are eligible to try to join a sorority as long as they 'consistently live and self-identify as women.'

During the rush, Sikes would post “Outfit of the Day” videos on his TikTok account, grabbing a large number of likes and views.
This is not the first time a “gender non-conforming” person has attempted to rush a sorority. At Northwestern University in 2017, a man identifying as a woman tried to complete the rush process.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Adam Davies, a transgender male, tried to get a bid to a sorority but was denied. Davies stated “The vibe was — as far as I could tell — we would love to have you, but we can't.”
Campus Reform contacted the University of Alabama and Grant Sikes for comment. This article will be updated accordingly.
