Lavender Graduation 2018 - Save the Date

The Georgia College LGBTQ+ Center is excited to announce the seventh Annual Lavender Graduation, which will be held on April 27, 2018, from 4-6 p.m.

Lavender Graduation is a cultural ceremony that celebrates our graduating LGBTQ+ and ally students. The Lavender Graduation Ceremony was created in 1995 at the University of Michigan by Dr. Ronni Sanlo. Once denied the opportunity to attend the graduations of her biological children because of her sexual orientation, she came to understand the commonly felt rejection and discouragement experienced by her students. 

This special ceremony serves to celebrate graduating LGBTQ+ students and allies for their strength and persistence in the face of adversity, as well as their achievements and contributions to the university. Participating students (undergraduate and graduate) will receive a certificate and lavender cords. They will also have the opportunity to personally thank an individual who has helped them through their college career. 

All attendees: Please RSVP* at www.tinyurl.com/GCLavGrad18 by 5 p.m. Monday, April 23.

(2018 Lavender Graduation is for anyone graduating in 2018 - if you are a December graduate, please feel free to participate in this ceremony as we only have a May ceremony at this time)

*We will collect responses and use them for planning Lavender Graduation only.
