Walk in my Shoes Installation

10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Library Lawn

The Walk in My Shoes installation is comprised of shoes that symbolize the women, transwomen, non-binary, and girls who have died because of femicide. 

Many of us know what it's like to lose a loved one, regardless of how or why, and all we have left of them are their everyday objects. We wish to showcase and honor the lives lost to LGBTQIA+ hate crimes, while giving back to the community. 

Every pair of shoes displayed will represent one of these lost lives, and we hope these shoes can find a new home, whether visitors need shoes or know someone in need. Leftover shoes will be donated to the Warrior Closet in the hopes that these items left behind can serve someone else, and so those who's lives were lost too soon can continue walking on.

The Walk in My Shoes Installation is a collaboration between Curator Dulce Stein, the Anthropology 20 Museum Studies class taught by Professor Lawrence Ramirez and the LGBTQIA+ Pride Center.


Lavender Graduation

6:00 - 8:00 PM

Marsee South Patio

Lavender Graduation is an annual ceremony conducted on numerous campuses to honor lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, nonbinary, intersex, queer, asexual/aromantic, and ally students to acknowledge their achievements and contributions to the college they attend. 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. It was through this experience that she came to understand the pain felt by her students. Encouraged by the Dean of Students at the University of Michigan, Dr. Sanlo designed the first Lavender Graduation Ceremony in 1995. The first Lavender Graduation began at the University of Michigan in 1995, with three graduates. By 2001, there were over 45 Lavender Graduation Ceremonies at Colleges and Universities nationwide. Graduating students, including undergraduates and graduates, are invited to take part in the celebration, which typically occurs each year the week prior to college wide commencement events.  Each student will receive an LGBTQIA+ sash and rainbow tassel to be worn at the main graduation ceremony.

ECC Celebration of Pride Festival

11:00AM - 2:00 PM

Student Services Plaza

Head outdoors for a fun-filled day of food, music, and entertainment brought to you by the Gender Sexuality & Alliance (GSA) Club. 

On June 28, 1970, on the one year anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, the first Pride marches and festivals were held in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Thousands of LGBTQIA+ people gathered to commemorate Stonewall and demonstrate for equal rights.  The events of Stonewall and the liberation movements that followed were a direct result of prior decades of LGBTQIA+ activism and organizing.  We are excited to bring back our own Pride Festival, highlighting community partners and the various student led clubs and departments on campus.
