Lavender Graduation is a special graduation ceremony that honors the achievements of graduating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and ally students on campus.

Lavender Graduation is hosted by the Gender and Sexuality Center and co-sponsored by the UT Queer & Trans Students Alliance (QTSA), the Pride and Equity Faculty Staff Association(PEFSA), the Pride Alumni Network, and the Queer Graduate Student Alliance (QGSA). Our goal is to provide a venue to demonstrate the success of our community members in a personal, entertaining and celebratory way. The Lavender Graduation Ceremony includes:

  • exhilarating speeches from UT faculty, administrators, students, and alumni;
  • the chance to cross the lavender stage to celebrate your success and to receive a Lavender Graduation certificate as well as a rainbow tassel; and
  • music, cupcakes and food to share with friends, family and well-wishers!

Do you want to show your support even though you are not graduating?
