A yearly celebratory event to honor and acknowledge the contributions of our LGBTQ+ identified graduating seniors. Lavender Ceremony typically happens in May of the Spring semester, with registration opening around March and closing mid-April.
Who is Lavender Celebration for?
- The Lavender Celebration is intended to honor those students who identify as LGBTQ+, both individually and as a group. If you happen to be a straight ally, you are absolutely welcome to attend the event as a guest, but you do NOT need to register. While anyone is welcome to attend, honorees will be students who are part of the LGBTQ+ Community.
What happens during the ceremony?
- Similar to graduation ceremonies, we will have several guest speakers. In addition, we will announce and read off each honoree’s name.
Who needs to register for Lavender Celebration?
- You only need to register if you wish to be honored as an LGBTQ+ student during the ceremony. If you simply wish to attend/watch the ceremony and support honorees, registration is not required.
How do I find out when registration opens or stay up to date with information?
- We will have sign-ups for more information on Lavender Ceremony available at the 100 Days Until Graduation event. Additionally, you can follow @nplgbtq on Instagram for more up-to-date information. Feel free to email Fresia Martinez Olivera at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
