Lavender Graduation!

And the theme is… FIERCE!
Keynote Speaker: Our provost Ana Mari Cauce

When: TUESDAY, June 5th, from 6-8 p.m. (Graduates please arrive by NO LATER than 5:15 p.m.)

Where: THE UW TOWER, 2nd Floor South Cafeteria

How: IF YOU ARE GRADUATING, please register here:

Graduate and celebrate all of you! Lavender Grad is open to any student eligible, at any level (undergrad or graduate/professional) for a graduation in the 2011-2012 academic year. The Q Center and Queer Student Commission host Lavender Graduation as a time for the UW queer, same gender loving, two-spirit, and allied communities to come together and celebrate our multiple identities, our accomplishments, and sheer AWESOMENESS.

You do not have to be graduating or be of a certain sexual or gender identity/orientation/expression to participate and/or attend the Lavender Graduation year-end celebration. Come enjoy food & drink, Trophy cupcakes, an amazing keynote and fierce queerness with us!

Dress: You can wear whatever you want! This is your graduation and as queer folk we are often “required” by work, school, family, culture, etc. to dress in ways that do not necessarily fit our tastes. If you wish to wear the cap and gown, wear it. If you want to appear in drag, do it. If you have cultural regalia you wish to wear proudly, please do so! If you want to dress up, go for it. You want to be comfy, have at it. This is your night. All of your identities are celebrated as is the awesomeness that is you and our UW queer communities!
