Frat raises money for trans brother

A fraternity at Boston’s Emerson College is shattering stereotypes by raising funds for their trans frat brother’s surgery.

Donnie Collins came out to members of Phi Alpha Tau as trans, and when his brothers learned Collins’s insurance company would not pay for his top surgery, the frat launched an Indiegogo page. The effort has raised $9,000 so far.

"Donnie means a lot to us, and this surgery really means a lot to him,”Phi Alpha Tau member Andy Schlebecker told Queerty. “He is one of those guys who goes out of his way to make everybody feel comfortable, and we just want to allow him to feel comfortable in his own skin, too."
