Over 100 colleges and universities will be hosting a separate graduation ceremony for LGBTQ and ally students this spring.

According to the Human Rights Campaign, the “Lavender Graduation” (a reference to the pink triangles Nazis forced gay men to wear) will take place on at least 124 college campuses in the United States in the coming weeks.

The graduations are intended to “provide a sense of community for minority students who often experience tremendous culture shock at their impersonalized institutions.”
