USF Holds Separate Graduation for LGBTQ Students
The University of South Florida is hosting a “Lavender Ceremony” on Wednesday to celebrate self-identifying LGBTQ+ students who are graduating.
The annual celebration is referred to as the ‘Lavender Ceremony’ and provides 50 graduating LGBTQ+ students with rainbow stoles.
The email sent out to all USF students set to graduate in 2022 stated, “Lavender Graduation is an event where USF students (undergrad, graduate, and professional) who self-identify as LGBTQ+ and have graduated or are planning to graduate in the 2021-2022 academic year have the opportunity to be recognized in an additional special ceremony apart from the main USF Commencement.”
The mass email, which Campus Reform obtained, was sent to all soon-to-be graduates at USF and encouraged only students that self-identify as LGBTQ+ to participate in this ceremony.
The ceremony has been coined the “Lavender Ceremony” because lavender is a combination of the pink triangles that gay men had to wear and the black triangles that lesbian women had to wear in concentration camps in Nazi Germany, according to the Human Rights Campaign.
The concept of holding separate graduation celebrations has not stopped with the Lavender Ceremonies.
