 Graduate and celebrate all of you!

The Q Center hosts Lavender Graduation as a time for the UW queer, trans, two-spirit, and allied communities to come together and celebrate our multiple identities, our accomplishments, and sheer AWESOMENESS. Lavender Graduation is open to any student eligible, at any level (undergraduate or graduate/professional), for graduation in the academic year.

What to wear?

Whatever you want! This is your graduation and as queer and trans* folks 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. All clothing has cultural significance, but sometimes we want to wear cultural regalia that honors our history, ourselves and the moment, please do so! If you want to dress up, or down, 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!
