Lesbian until graduation involves experimentation and the assumed identity of bisexuality or lesbian during one's high school and college years.

The term is often used to describe white, privileged, educated women in liberal spheres of education who decide to adopt this persona only during their educational years. The term is sometimes used to describe push back from the lesbian community against bisexual women or to negatively describe bisexual women.
