The

Call to Boulé

from the Supreme Basileus

Greeting Brothers, It is with extreme elation that I send this official call to the 5th Biennial Boulé of Delta Phi Upsilon Fraternity, Inc. The conference theme is “Building on Brotherhood…Leaving A Legacy.” Since our last meeting we have focused on securing our identity as a fraternity and not just an organization of gay men. We have critiqued our mission, developed a vision, and updated our goals in hope that they will illuminate our paths on our new Delta Journey. Also, a few of you left the last convention with a new-found energy to become more active in leadership and that has been a tremendous asset. I hope that in the coming months, many others begin to ponder the same thoughts and plan their trek from “Enlisted” to “Officer.” We will convene in Washington DC, July 18-21, 2013 for three days filled with information, networking opportunities, and debates that will devise the blueprint for our future. Delta Phi Upsilon aspires to become the nations premier community service fraternity of its kind and it’s only through your dedication, commitment and hard work that we can achieve this vision. I look forward to seeing you all in the Nation’s Capital!

DELTA PHI UPSILON FRATERNITY, INC. Pioneer Award Earl Fowlkes

President & Chief Executive Officer International Federation of Black Prides Earl Fowlkes never thought his career would end up focusing on HIV and LGBT work, but that’s the way it’s unfolded. Growing up just outside of Philadelphia in Willingboro, N.J., Fowlkes spent most of his adult life in Manhattan and spent many years streamlining companies for maximum effectiveness. Fowlkes relocated to Washington, DC 14 years ago to take a job with D.C.’s AIDS program Damien Ministries, where he worked for eight years before joining the D.C. Care Consortium, another AIDS charity. Mr. Fowlkes then moved on to found the International Federation of Black Prides, a coalition of Black Pride organizers who work to promote a multinational network of LGBT/SGL Prides and community-based organizations. In that capacity, he has been integral in developing sponsorship strategies, providing technical assistance, networking, mentoring and supporting the twenty plus Black Prides in the United States and abroad.
