Lavender GraduationLavender Graduation

Lavender Graduation is an annual ceremony held to honor the accomplishments of LGBTQIA+ students at The University of Alabama. Students honored at this event have not only completed the academic requirements for a college degree, but have also demonstrated personal resilience as members of the marginalized LGBTQIA+ community during their school years. We honor them for that as much as their papers, reports, and projects.

For more history about the event, visit the Lavender Graduation Page on Capstone Alliance’s website.
