Founded in 1902, Phi Alpha Tau is the nation’s oldest professional communicative arts fraternity. We are based out of Emerson College in downtown Boston, and our brothers are among the brightest students within the School of the Arts and the School of Communications. We award honorary recognition to Emerson faculty as well as nationally prominent figures. On campus we enjoy the brotherhood of many professors and administrators. Tau is not a residential fraternity, though we view our bond of brotherhood as a lifelong commitm.

Pledging a fraternity and being inducted as a brother is often an arduous process, one that is meant to separate the men from the boys. But where does the LGBTQ community fit into this macho niche? .
