What is Lavender Celebration?
Since 2013, each April, all members of the Georgia Tech community are invited to Lavender Celebration, which is the LGBTQIA Resource Center's event to celebrate our Lavender Graduates and Lavender Award Recipients.
At Lavender Graduation, we honor our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual graduates. Families of our graduating students are also welcome to attend.
First presented in 2015, the Lavender Awards recognize individuals, departments, and organizations that have made Georgia Tech a safer and more inclusive environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and asexual students, faculty, staff, and alumni. An awards committee reviews all nominations and selects winners.
Who can participate?
Lavender Graduation recognizes lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, and ally students who are graduating. This includes both undergraduate and graduate students. All graduating students who want to be recognized must register. The deadline to register to be recognized is Sunday, March 21st at 11:59pm. Visit our website on Lavender Graduation to learn more.
To nominate an individual, department, or organization for a Lavender Award, please read the descriptions on the website and complete our online nomination form. You can submit as many nominations as you wish. Please provide as much detail as possible and include specific examples of why the nominee deserves the award so that our awards committee can make the most informed decisions.
