ALUMNI ZINE

Inscription is a ‘zine with words of encouragement, love, and reflection from LGBTQIA+ alumni to LGBTQIA+ graduating seniors.

Physical copies are gifted to seniors as part of the Lavender graduation ceremonies each year. View previous volumes below.

Cover of Inscription: An LGBTQ Alumni Zine Volume I // 2018. White background with lavender text. Small lavender ink-like explosions leap out of the title "Inscription." Underneath a dictionary phonetic spelling of the word inscription is rendered. A winding flower image is layered on top of each other so that the whole image becomes obscured at the bottom of the page.
