The University Student Union’s Grand Salon was packed with celebrants at the sixth annual Rainbow Graduation Celebration on May 19.
The event was one of several cultural celebrations to recognize the diversity of CSUN students and congratulate them on a successful academic journey. The ceremony recognized about 40 graduates in CSUN’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) students, queer studies minors and allies.
Raquel Gutiérrez ’02 (Journalism/Central American Studies), a writer and performance artist who has performed nationally and internationally, served as keynote speaker. San Fernando Vice Mayor Joel Fajardo and student speakers Kayla Chambers and MJ Jones offered inspirational messages.
