San Diego State University (SDSU) will celebrate their LGBT students in the 8th annual Lavender Graduation ceremony. This event is open to all graduating students who identify as lesbian, gay, transgender, queer or LGBT allies.
This semester, the San Diego State University Pride Centerhas implemented a new program, the Pride House Commuter Program, to provide guidance, advice and support to commuter students who align themselves with SDSU’s LGBTQ community. Seven current freshmen have chosen to be a part of this pilot program.
In a statement, Eric Rivera, vice president for student affairs, invited members of the faculty and all students to attend and encouraged wide participation of the event to show campus support of LGBT students on the SDSU campus as well as the local LGBT community at large.
The purpose of the event is to celebrate the achievements of graduating members of SDSU's LGBTQA community and is open to all students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or allies.
