National Coming Out Day

Every October 11th, thousands of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people and their allies celebrate National Coming Out Day. The UH LGBT community and Allies use the week surrounding October 11th as a time to educate the UH community on LGBT issues.

World AIDS Day

Recognized on December 1st, World Aids Day raises awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. AIDS Awareness Week educates the campus community about AIDS and its impact on the local and global communities.

Day of Silence

Every April, the Day of Silence brings attention to anti-LGBT bullying, harassment and discrimination that occurs in schools. Students observe the day in silence to echo the silence that LGBT and ally students face every day.

Lavender Graduation

Every May

Lavender Graduation is an annual ceremony conducted on numerous campuses to honor lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and ally students and to acknowledge their achievements and contributions to the University. The Lavender Graduation Ceremony was created by Dr. Ronni Sanlo, a Jewish Lesbian, who was denied the opportunity to attend the graduations of her biological children because of her sexual orientation. Encouraged by the Dean of Students at the University of Michigan, Dr. Sanlo designed the first Lavender Graduation Ceremony in 1995. Graduating students at the University of Houston, including undergraduates and graduates, are invited to take part in the celebration each year. Details will be posted at a later date.
