LMU celebrates the LGBTQ+ community during June Pride month and throughout the year.
Honoring the Class of 2021
On Saturday, May 1, we proudly celebrated our LGBTQ grads at Lavender Graduation, a cultural celebration that recognizes LGBTQ students of all races and ethnicities and acknowledges their achievements and contributions to the university.
We look forward to celebrating all 2021 graduates at in-person ceremonies in July.

In Six Words
The LMU’s Anti-Racism Project’s In Six Words series gets to the heart of our community’s struggles and fight against the unjust and unequal experiences that plague our society, in hopes of sparking conversation, understanding, and empathy.
LGBTQ+ Pride is about more than just identity. June stories will highlight the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and Queer community around issues of dignity, new perspective, expression, joy, advocacy, and so much more.
