Awareness and Educational Programs - Every year SOGIE offers numerous awareness and educational programs to the JMU community. The Coming Out Monologues, Transgender Day of Remembrance, and Trans 101 are just a few of the annual events that we plan.

Social Events – SOGIE plans monthly events dedicated to connecting with identity and others through activity or dialogue. Keep an eye out for our Affinity Group offerings, Community Chats, and Activity Hours.

Lavender Graduation - Our Lavender Graduation is to congratulate and celebrate the achievements of our LGBTQ+ graduates at Lavender Graduation! This is an opportunity to thank these students for their contributions to the LGBTQ+ community and the JMU community as a whole. In addition to celebrating our graduates, SOGIE announces our annual award winners. For information on SOGIE’s events happening this semester please see the JMU Master Calendar and follow up on Instagram @jmu.sogie or Be Involved.
