BALTIMORE (AP) -- A Morgan State University student has filed a complaint after he says he was denied membership in a fraternity because he is gay.

WBFF-TV (http://bit.ly/1iriHmC ) reports Brian Stewart wanted to be a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. He says members of the fraternity hinted that because of his sexual orientation he was unlikely to be admitted. Stewart got a denial letter Oct. 3 and filed a claim against the university and the fraternity a few weeks later.

The university said in a statement that it has launched an investigation. Kappa Alpha Psi did not immediately return a request for comment.
