Awards Honor Leaders in LGBTQA Community

Alumni are invited to the LGBTQA Center’s 3rd Annual Lavender Awards on April 24. “The Lavender Awards is essential to the institutional memory of Pace University's LGBTQA community,” notes Roberto “Berto” Chavez, former e-board member of the Stonewall Coalition. “It is students who come to events, who lead discussions, who enrich campus life. It is students who form clubs, go to marches, host mixers, raise money for charities, and throw celebrations; and these student leaders also come and go and sometimes aren't given the proper praise for their efforts. At the Lavender Awards the Pace community takes a moment to recognize and honor the hard work of its student leaders, alumni, faculty, and staff committed to making the university a better place for its LGBTQA student body. This ceremony is meant to document and preserve that legacy.”  >> Register online
