Grant Sikes, a biological man who identifies as female, has taken the University of Alabama and social media by storm.

Sikes was on a mission to get into one of the nearly two dozen sororities at the school and documented the effort on TikTok and Instagram.

However, Sikes said none of the women’s organizations chose the transgender student to proceed in the pledge process.

“It is extremely upsetting, and I am sad because I wanted to be part of a sisterhood and, more than that, a community,” Sikes said in a video post that has more than 2 million views.

Since 2017, the university’s rules have allowed anyone identifying as female to take part in the pledge process but leaves the decision on whether to accept transgender members up to the individual sororities.
