Virtual: Wake Forest University Lavender Graduation Ceremony
April 29, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Wake Forest University LGBTQ+ Center is hosting its 7th annual Lavender Graduation ceremony on Wednesday, April 29th, at 6:00 pm. The ceremony will be streamed online. While this year’s celebration will look quite different from previous years, the Center is excited to celebrate an outstanding, resilient, amazing group of 2020 graduates at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
Lavender Graduation celebrates the achievements of LGBTQ+ and ally graduating students; it is a unique ceremony held annually to honor the struggles many LGBTQ+ students face in accessing and achieving in their education. It does not replace traditional commencement activities but is a special time to come together in a community of celebration. Lavender Graduates have the opportunity to be recognized publicly or privately. Students recognized publicly will be invited to share a photo and information about themselves they would like shared during the ceremony, and they will be listed in our program. All Lavender Graduates will receive a certificate, cord, gift from the LGBTQ+ Center (cords and gifts will be available for pick-up during commencement weekend in the future or shipped to graduates) and messages of support from the LGBTQ+ community.
RSVP here to receive the link to the ceremony and any relevant updates. Reach out to the LGBTQ+ Center staff at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
