MIAKA Controversy

Men Interested in Alpha Kappa Alpha (MIAKA) have been on the scene for quite some time now, first turning up on the campuses of Texas Southern University and Prairie View A&M in 2007. Modeled after the historically Black sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha Incorporated, the gay men wear pink and green, throw up pinkies. and have the same call indicative of oldest National Pan-Hellenic Council sorority.

But, they took their adoration to a whole new level when a few jumped on Twitter threatening to sue AKA for homophobia and gender discrimination. Former Second Supreme Anti-Basileus for the sorority, Star Jones, took to Twitter on Saturday to address:

“Shall I start with what the hell is a MIAKA?”

“Just because you’re INTERESTED in #AKA doesn’t make you an #AKA. I’m interested in basketball…but my free throws suck. #getAgripJoinaFRAT”

“Tell the MiAKAs (how hilarious) the former 2nd Supreme said don’t waste your money on a lawyers retainer; you have no case! Oh..and #DUCES.”

Although the Divine Nine has tried to ignore them in the past, the men believe they have a right to be included in the women's organization. Time will tell if they really take their grievances off Twitter and to a judge.
