LGBTQ Rainbow Celebration and Graduation

Rainbow Celebration honors the achievements of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer students throughout their academic careers at Ohio State.

The Student Life Multicultural Center and the LGBTQ Alumni Society, Scarlet & Gay, annually sponsor our Rainbow Celebration and Lavender Graduation ceremony to acknowledge and to celebrate those students graduating this academic year, and to recognize Scarlet & Gay scholarship recipients. We also recognize the contribution and leadership of selected graduating students with our "Buckeye Pride Community Impact" awards.

The 2019 Rainbow Celebration will be held on Thursday, April 18 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Ohio Union Performance Hall. For more information about the event, email Jeff Perkins.

Suggested attire: Wear whatever makes you feel queer and fabulous!

NOTE: If you are a graduating student partaking in Lavender Graduation, we ask that you arrive 15 minutes EARLY to take a group photo of all graduates! There will be seats in the front of the room reserved for you as well.
