What Rainbow Graduation Is:

  • Something you would invite your family/close friends/those most important to you
  • An opportunity to honor YOU
  • Your formal induction into the ranks of SJSU LGBT Graduate Alumni
  • Although many people do get dressed up for the event, it tends to be a queer littleget together, with all the uniqueness of our community, so be yourself
  • Something that has GREAT food
  • Something you’d ask a favorite professor/those who have affected you at SJSU to attend
  • The last formal program of the year from the LGBT Resource Center
  • Lots of fun
  • The event where you get a Rainbow Tassel (Woo Hoo!)

What Rainbow Graduation Is Not:

  • An actual graduation (it is a celebration, you don’t get a diploma or anything, but a nifty colorful certificate)
  • A substitute for attending your actual graduation
  • Something you would want to miss

All students will be given at least two minutes to talk if they so wish to take time to thanks family members, partners, talk about their struggles and triumphs in school and/or give advise to those following, etc.

When you register you will be asked it you would like to apply to speak at graduation, please note this is for a formal speech (5 to 10 min).
