The political climate of the last decade played a large role in the creation of Kappa Theta Epsilon. The constantly negative portrayal of lesbians and gays in mainstream media during that period, and the emergence of same-sex marriage as a recurring political issue drove our Founder to look for a medium to create change.
The Sorority was founded on the morning of February 24th. The Sorority’s mission, as the Founder envisioned it, would be to serve the community through social and political activism while embracing sisterhood as its primary aim.
Kappa Theta Epsilon is the first social service Sorority for professional and entrepreneurial Lesbian women.
Today, the Sorority proudly exemplifies our mission through philanthropy, political activism, and plans for expansion to other areas. We have strategically planned to expand aim toward a global focus in years to come, in order to empower the LGBT community worldwide.
Kappa Theta Epsilon strives to cultivate leadership and a culture of success among lesbian women of all backgrounds.
The vision of Kappa Theta Epsilon is to impact the life of each member through sisterhood and organizational programs, enhance the communities we serve through philanthropy, and lead by inspiration and positive example.
