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.
