The University of Southern California’s (USC) LGBTQ and Ally Community appreciates your participation in Lavender Celebration. Lavender has fast become one of the most popular cultural graduation ceremonies at USC for LGBTQ and Ally undergraduate and graduate students since its inaugural inception in 2005. Lavender demonstrates the progressive steps forward the University has made for LGBTQ inclusion on campus by honoring LGBTQ students for their campus involvement and for being positive role models. Graduate participation continues to increase along with special guest attendees from staff, faculty, alumni, friends and family members.


The USC LGBTQ & Ally Community encourages you to advance your support for our students through a gift to USC. Your gift will ensure that Lavender continues to serve as a capstone of the USC LGBTQ student experience. As Lavender continues to grow in numbers, your gift can make a difference and guarantee that the program continues on par with previous celebrations. Please make a gift today and honor our LGBTQ and Ally graduates and sustain this celebration for future generations.
