The 2016 Lavender Graduation Celebration Planning Committee invites students to apply to be a speaker at this year’s LGBTQ+ graduation celebration to be held on Friday, April 29, at 6:00 pm at Alumni House. As many as three speakers will be chosen, based on service on or off campus with the LGBTQ+ community, and a cogent, engaging, and inspirational story or message to their fellow graduates.

Eligibility: UC Berkeley undergraduate or graduate students who will be on the degree list for spring, summer or fall 2016. Allies of the LGBTQ+ are also welcome to apply. The committee values a diversity of speakers and Cal LGBTQ+ experiences and encourages students from various parts of campus to apply.

Each speaker will receive a Cal Rainbow Graduation Stole. The deadline to apply is Monday April 18, 11:59 pm. Chosen speakers will be notified by Friday, April 22,2016. Apply through the Lavender Graduation google form.
