Lavender Graduation is a ceremony held at the end of the academic year, to recognize graduating lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students. It is a way to acknowledge the achievements made throughout these students' college careers. The Lavender Graduation Ceremony affirms the personhood of LGBT students by celebrating their academic successes, as well as honoring their personal journey and individual growth. Through the support created by programs such as Lavender Graduation, a ripple effect is created and these students are enabled to provide guidance to others in the LGBT community.
The 2008 Lavender Graduation Ceremony will be held on April 27, 2008. If you are interested in participating in the ceremony, please contact Kristen Selheim at firstname.lastname@example.org before March 21, 2008.
