University Hosts Graduation Ceremony Only for LGBTQIA+ – Opinion

If you’re graduating from the University of South Florida, who you prefer to press against with your gown off will determine where you can go when you put it on.

Campus Reform has reported that the school will host a ceremony for LGBTQIA+ students.

Of course, there are ways to gain access other than adoring particular appendages — participation may be procured on account of identity. So if you’re female and fancy male flesh, merely mention you’re a man and entry is yours.

As for the rest of the rainbow’s letters, courtesy of Irvine Valley College, here’s an acronymic explainer of all that the consonants and nouns include:

  • Lesbian
  • Gay
  • Bisexual
  • Transgender
  • Transsexual
  • Two-spirit
  • Queer
  • Questioning
  • Intersex
  • Sexuality
  • Ally
  • A-gender
  • Bi-gender
  • Gender Queer
  • Pansexual
  • Pangender
  • Variations in Gender

“Ally” obviously opens the doors plenty wide.

However, those who are not supportive of straight cisgenders need not apply.

The following email was purportedly sent to 2022’s graduating class:

Lavender Graduation, an annual event for USF undergraduate, graduate and professional students, is an opportunity to recognize them in a special ceremony, apart from the USF Commencement.

Why “lavender”? CR outlines it:

The ceremony has been coined the “Lavender Ceremony” because lavender is a combination of the pink triangles that gay men had to wear and the black triangles that lesbian women had to wear in concentration camps in Nazi Germany, according to the Human Rights Campaign.

Separate graduations have been a growing trend in America as it enters an historic new phase of segregation.

In 2021, Columbia University held 6 separate graduation ceremonies for students of various genders and ethnicities. California’s Chapman University followed the same practice. It held a Black graduation ceremony, an Asian Pacific Islander Desi American graduation (APDA), a purple (LGBTQ+), a disability graduation and a Middle Eastern graduation.


Lavender graduated its first class in 1995. The idea quickly gained momentum. Over 100 universities now hold separate ceremonies for LGBTQ+ students.

All sectors of America are being influenced by a segregationist bias:

For Lent, a Chicago Church is ‘Fasting From Whiteness’

It seems to me if we’re going to have separate graduation ceremonies, we’d might as well have separate schools. That may be where we’re headed.

America used to believe that unity is our strength. These days, we’re told our mettle is made of diversity — in situations so far as I can tell, where that isn’t at all true.

Some people consider independence a virtue.

In the end, what will become of a country that aspired to be “one nation under God”?

This is yet unknown. But it appears we’re determined to find out.
