Penn State’s Center For Sexual & Gender Diversity To Host Lavender Graduation April 12

Penn State’s Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity will host its annual Lavender Graduation ceremony at 6 p.m. on Friday, April 12, in Heritage Hall at the HUB. 

Celebrating the accomplishments of the LGBTQ+ community, Lavender Graduation invites undergraduate and graduate students who will complete their degrees in May, August, or December 2024 to be honored. The event is meant to recognize and acknowledge the contributions of sexual and gender-diverse students to the university. 

The ceremony is open to all students, regardless of sexual orientation, gender, race, or any other protected class. 

Anyone is welcome to attend and support the effort. For those graduating, a rainbow tassel, stole, and certificate will be provided to commemorate the occasion.
