It was amazing and an honor to see an article written about me regarding the election of my fraternity. It has been an amazing to be a part of the Phi Mu Delta Nu Xi Chapter at the University of Southern Maine. This group of men have shown me acceptance and the brotherhood is stronger than I ever could have imagined. I am proud to be the new elected President of the Nu Xi Chapter for the year of 2017. The world has come along way and I hope to see the acceptance of transgender people in fraternities and sororities grow.

“Blazing New Trails for LGBTQ Youth in Maine
OUT Maine is thrilled to celebrate Aiden Michael Campbell, a trans man and LGBTQ youth leader in the midcoast and Portland, who has just been named to the Executive Board of Phi Mu Delta Nu Xi Chapter at USM for 2017. Aiden, son of OUT Maine’s program director, is the first transgender President of a fraternity in Maine and second in the nation. Aiden is a trailblazer in so many ways and we are so happy and excited for him as he continues to help LGBTQ youth step fully into who they are!
