Class of 2020: Be Part of the LGBT Resource Center’s Lavender Graduation Video
Lavender Graduation is an annual gathering of faculty, staff, students and community members to celebrate and send off LGBTQAI+ members of the graduating class.
While the traditional ceremony cannot be held in person this year, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Resource Center (RC) is compiling a Lavender Graduation video to honor the many achievements of the Class of 2020. The LGBT RC will also send out lavender cords in the mail once operations are resumed on campus.
To participate in the video and/or request a cord, please complete this form by Friday, April 24, at 5 p.m. EDT.
This year’s Lavender Graduation alumni speaker, Mitchell Kuga ’09, will record their speech for inclusion in the video. Newhouse alum Kuga is a journalist living in New York City whose work largely centers on queer culture, Hawai’i and cultural trends. His writing has been published in GQ, T Magazine, The Village Voice and Condé Nast Traveler, and he is the 2019 recipient of the Excellence in Online Journalism Award from NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists.
