​Save the Date – Lavender Graduation

Broyhill Auditorium

The LGBTQ Center is excited to be hosting the fourth annual Wake Forest University Lavender Graduation ceremony on Wednesday, April 26, 2017. This unique event honors graduating LGBTQ and ally students and celebrates their achievements. Any graduating student, undergraduate or graduate, is eligible to be recognized in the ceremony, and we invite both undergraduates and graduate students to register. Please encourage graduating students to register online

We are also accepting nominations for student speakers for Lavender Graduation through March 24th. Faculty, staff, and students are invited to nominate a graduating senior or graduate student to serve as a student speaker, and self-nominations are also accepted. Please consider nominating a graduating LGBTQ or ally student to share their insights at the ceremony. Nominations may be submitted here.

After the recent Dear Colleague letter rescinding guidance expanding support and protection for transgender students, the LGBTQ Center reaffirms our support to our transgender students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Please see our statement for more information and resources on campus and in the community.

Welcome to the LGBTQ Center! We seek to provide education, advocacy, and support to members of the Wake Forest community on issues of sexuality and gender. We offer a number of ongoing programs and special programs throughout the year, and we maintain a student lounge space in Benson 311. Stop by and hang out with us!


Need to talk to someone? We have office hours throughout the week, or you can make an appointment.
