Lavender Graduation is an event honoring graduating LGBTQ+ seniors by bringing together members of their communities in celebration of their accomplishments, with particular honor and recognition for the ways in which sexuality and gender have influenced their paths toward graduation.

Lavender Graduation, at its foundation, celebrates the achievements of the graduate through the lens of their identity across the spectrum of sexual orientation, gender identity and/or gender expression.

This celebration serves as a powerful reminder that LGBTQ+ and Ally students live OUT, productive, healthy and engaged lives, often doing so in the face of adversity inside and outside the classroom.

Sponsored by the S.A.G.E. Center and the Queer Council.

For more information please contact the S.A.G.E. Center at 603-535-2387.

The S.A.G.E. Center and PSU Pride at Plymouth State University (PSU) will present a screening of Just Say Love, a Stagewright Films production directed by Bill Humphreys based on the stage play written by David Mauriello, on April 16 in Hyde 120 at Plymouth State University at 7 pm. Admission is free. The film was produced at Granite Media Center in Tilton, NH, and the play was originally produced at The Players Ring in Portsmouth, NH.

In Just Say Love, following their hook up, two men, who seem to be opposites, discuss their dreams, what ideal happiness might be like, and maybe....a future together. Physical attractions appear to be the obvious explanation for two people to become a pair. But are they really the reflection of something sublime, everlasting or dare we say, spiritual? Do relationships start in the bedroom or in the heart? In this male love story, the bliss described by Joseph Campbell and sages throughout the millennia is a practical option for finding happiness. As the camera delves into the character's minds and actions in Just Say Love, we find fulfillment on both a physical and spiritual level. This surprising love story concentrates on the characters and their interplay, and takes place on a minimally decorated stage which minimizes distractions. “Writer David J. Mauriello, adapting his stage play for the screen, and director Bill Humphreys have crafted an elegantly pure, gen uinely moving, and devastatingly honest depiction of love and desire between two men, and a relationship that defies definition.” - Michael Gamilla, ImageOut: Rochester, NY LGBT Films and Video Festival.

A post-screening panel discussion/Q&A will feature director Bill Humphreys and playwright David Mauriello joining several community members to not only discuss the making of the film, but also the myriad topics associated with this production. Humphreys has worked from coast to coast as an actor, producer and director in radio, television, film and live theatre for the past 35 years. Bill has been recognized by the IFTFNY, The AFI, Telly Awards, American Women in Radio and Television, The Ohio State Awards, The AP, The NAB and the Aurora Awards among others. Humphreys boasts 10 Emmy nominations and three wins as Producer, Executive Producer and Director. Awarded a fellowship by the Artists Foundation of Massachusetts for his screenplay Fireflies and winner of the Jane Chambers Memorial Gay Play Contest for But Mostly Because It’s Raining, David Mauriello is an accomplished, seasoned, award-winning writer. His plays have been produced in New England, California, and New York City. He is also the author of the book, Reminders of Home, a collection of inspirational writing.

Sponsored by the S.A.G.E. Center (Sexuality, Anti-Violence, Gender, Equality) and PSU Pride and presented in affiliation with Awareness UNlimited – Opening Minds, Opening Worlds, Stratham, NH.
