The Lavender (LGBTQ+) Graduation celebrates our LGBTQ+ students as they achieve their educational success here at Pasadena City College. By inviting students to participate, we hope to inspire unity amongst the community and show the campus that our LGBTQ+ students are a representation of our values. Our goal is to encourage other students to create a campus community that is supportive and accepting of our LGBTQ+ student population.
