In April, the Lambda Bridges LGBTQA+ Program Office celebrates Spring Pride Month with these events:

April 5: “Dance Your Lashes Off!”

Entertainment and education hook up at the popular biannual drag show. “Dance Your Lashes Off!” begins at 8 p.m. April 5 in the Performance Center, inside the Natali Student Center. Admission is free, and the show is open to the public.

April 13: Todrick Hall

Catch a live performance by YouTube sensation Todrick Hall at 7 p.m. April 13 in the Convocation Center. Admission is free, and the public may attend.

Hall is a stage actor who appeared in The Color Purple on Broadway … an American Idol finalist from Season 9 … an online sensation with 180 million+ YouTube video views … and the star of MTV’s Todrick. His 2014 tour featured sold-out shows in New York City, Los Angeles and London.

“Celebrated for his creative self-expression and innovative vision, Hall takes audiences on a journey that is as unique and entertaining as he is; imparting valuable perspective on developing one’s own definition of success, overcoming obstacles, embracing individuality and diversity, and producing work that inspires others.

April 19: Lavender Graduation

Cal U celebrates its LGBTAQ+ graduates and allies at the third annual Lavender Graduation, to be held at 11 a.m. April 19 in the Performance Center, inside the Natali Student Center.

This is an opportunity for students to honor their allies and mentors, and to serve as examples for other LGBTQA graduates.

Lavender Graduation does NOT replace Commencement; students who attend Lavender Graduation are encouraged to walk with their graduating class at Commencement, and to wear their lavender stole as a sign of community pride.

Important note: Graduating students who wish to be honored should contact lambdabridges@calu.edu no later than April 8, 2016.

Faculty and staff members are welcome to attend the ceremony. Please contact Lambda Bridges if you wish to attend Lavender Graduation.
