Campus Pride in partnership with PFLAG National will host a national “Lavender Graduation” for LGBTQ+ and ally graduates of the Class of 2020 to celebrate and honor their achievements. This free, live streaming event to celebrate #LAVGrads will begin airing at 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT at CampusPride.org/2020 and across Campus Pride and PFLAG’s social media channels.
Of note, 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the very first Lavender Graduation organized at University of Michigan by Ronni Sanlo, a pioneer of campus organizing for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) people within higher education. Since 1995, Lavender Graduations have been a commencement tradition for LGBTQ and ally college students that is now included in many universities across the United States. Sanlo will be a featured speaker along with LGBTQ and ally graduates and soon to be announced notable leaders and celebrities.
