If you’re graduating from the University of South Florida, who you prefer to press against with your gown off will determine where you can go when you put it on.

As relayed by Campus Reform, the school is hosting a graduation ceremony only for the LGBTQIA+ crowd.

Of course, there are ways to gain access other than adoring particular appendages — participation may be procured on account of identity. So if you’re female and fancy male flesh, merely mention you’re a man and entry is yours.

As for the rest of the rainbow’s letters, courtesy of Irvine Valley College, here’s an acronymic explainer of all that the consonants and nouns include:

  • Lesbian
  • Gay
  • Bisexual
  • Transgender
  • Transsexual
  • Two-spirit
  • Queer
  • Questioning
  • Intersex
  • Asexual
  • Ally
  • A-gender
  • Bi-gender
  • Gender Queer
  • Pansexual
  • Pangender
  • Gender Variant

“Ally” obviously opens the doors plenty wide.

But those of the unsupportive, straight cisgender sort need not apply.

The following email was purportedly sent to 2022’s graduating class:

Lavender Graduation is an event where USF students (undergrad, graduate, and professional) who self-identify as LGBTQ+ and have graduated or are planning to graduate in the 2021-2022 academic year have the opportunity to be recognized in an additional special ceremony apart from the main USF Commencement.

Why “lavender”? CR lays it out:

The ceremony has been coined the “Lavender Ceremony” because lavender is a combination of the pink triangles that gay men had to wear and the black triangles that lesbian women had to wear in concentration camps in Nazi Germany, according to the Human Rights Campaign.

Separate graduations are definitely catching hold, as America signs up for an entirely new historic phase of segregation:

Ivy League University Offers Separate Graduation Ceremonies According to Race, Sexual Identity, and Income

Another University Offers Racially Segregated Graduation, One Critic Calls It ‘Jim Crow’

More from Campus Reform:

In 2021, Columbia University held 6 separate graduation ceremonies for students of various genders and ethnicities. Chapman University, located in California, followed this practice and held a Black graduation, an Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APDA) graduation, a lavender (LGBTQ+) graduation, a disability graduation, a Middle Eastern graduation, and a Latinx graduation.


The first Lavender graduation was held in 1995 and its concept quickly gained popularity. Currently, over 100 universities hold a separate graduation ceremony for their LGBTQ+ students.

A segregationist slant is seeping into all sorts of American sectors:

Public Library Hosts a Dance Class for the Elderly — No Whites Allowed

Harvard Funds No-Whites-Allowed Music Album Following Black Students’ ‘Excruciating’ Year

Home Depot Tells Its Staff They’re White-Privileged Oppressors and Marginalized Victims

State University Hosts a Cabaret Showcase for All Students but White Ones

For Lent, a Chicago Church is ‘Fasting From Whiteness’

It seems to me if we’re going to have separate graduation ceremonies, we’d might as well have separate schools. That may be where we’re headed.

There was a time in America when unity was thought to be our strength. These days, we’re told our mettle is made of diversity — in situations so far as I can tell, where that isn’t at all true.

Meanwhile, there are some who clearly consider separatism a virtue.

In the end, what will become of a country that aspired to be “one nation under God”?

Such is, as of yet, unknown. But it appears we’re determined to find out.
