Deadline April 17 2017 11:50PM

Dear UC Berkeley LGBTIQA students and student allies,

Undergraduate and Graduate Students, the Lavender Graduation Celebration Planning Committee invites you to apply to be a student speaker at this year’s LGBTQ+ graduation celebration to be held on Friday May 5, 2017 at 6:00pm in the Alumni House at UC Berkeley.  

Eligibility: UCB Undergraduate or Graduate Students who will be on the degree list for either spring, summer or fall 2017 or who graduated December 2016. Allies of the LGBTQ+ community are also welcome to apply.

Up to 3 speakers will be chosen with at least one speaker being a graduate student (masters, doctorate, professional degree). The selection of students will be based on their service within the campus or off campus LGBTQ+ communities, and who have a cogent, engaging and inspirational story or message to their fellow graduates. We value a diversity of speakers and Cal LGBTQ+ experiences and thus encourage students from various parts of campus to apply. Please prepare your remarks to be no longer than 5-8 mins.

Each speaker will receive a Cal Rainbow Graduation Stole
