Lavender Graduations are held on college and university campuses across the country. They serve as a space for LGBTQ+ students to show up as their most authentic self to celebrate their academic accomplishments with friends, family, faculty, and staff. This is especially meaningful for students who cannot be themselves with their family for graduation, but is open to graduates regardless of your visibility and familial support. Lavender Graduation is held the weekend before traditional graduation ceremonies. All LGBTQ+ Truman students (undergraduate and graduate) who will graduate in May, August, or the following December are welcome to participate in the ceremony. Friends, family, faculty and staff, and allies are welcome to attend in support of the graduates.
#LavGrad21 will be Sunday, May 2nd from 4pm to 6pm in the Baldwin Little Theater
