This lecture is made possible through the generosity of alumni and friends who contribute annually to The Lavender Fund.
Launched in 2019, The Lavender Fund raises annual support to bring LGBTQIA+ community speakers to campus, send students to attend LGBTQIA+ conferences, and sponsor student trips to historic and influential locations associated with the LGBTQIA+ civil rights movement. This first-of-its-kind funding enhances existing initiatives at MCLA to ensure that LGBTQIA+ student life on campus is enriched and protected. To contribute to the Lavender Fund click here.
