The Lavender Luncheon or Lavender Graduation, was created by Dr. Ronni Sanlo when she saw the need to recognize the struggle faced by LGBT students in the coming out process during their collegiate years. In addition to the importance of having a campus community that celebrates the LGBT community, campuses have adopted the Lavender Luncheon in their own unique way of sharing challenges, laughter and triumphs. At CI, all attendees will learn about the obstacles that the LGBT community has overcome and are still overcoming. You can share a meal with the people who have been recognized as mentors and allies at CI and in Ventura County.
