Juneau Pride 2015 starts this Friday, 6/12, at 7PM! We're all very excited for the Juneau community bringing together 10 days of wonderful events, ranging from drag performances to a queer-aoke karaoke contest, from a day of service to their annual Pride Picnic. The celebrations run from 6/12 - 6/21. All are invited to attend and commemorate the dignity and honor of LGBTQ lives and contributions to society.

There's no gay bar in Juneau per say, but every Friday we take over The Imperial (241 Front Street) between 6-8 p.m. Everyone is welcome to join us! Often we are in the back section, but sometimes meet in the space by Front Street Cafe (inside The Imperial). Ask the bartender or look for the most attractive and friendly-looking people in the room. Sometimes we're late, sometimes we're early. Energetic folks often keep the social going with another stop afterward. Hungry folks sometimes head out somewhere for dinner. If you see a group, and you don't know any of us, take a risk and introduce yourself. We're an awfully welcoming group! And we love getting visits from summer travelers.
Some Fridays we pick a different spot. If you don't find us at The Imperial, check out the SEAGLA Facebook page for the most up-to-date location. https://www.facebook.com/#!/seaglalgbtq
Representatives Munoz and Nageak have introduced a bill that would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. This bipartisan bill is sponsored by two members of the historically socially conservative House majority. That's BIG news! Please take the time, right now, to email Representatives Munoz and Nageak expressing your support. You don't need a form letter. Just write a quick email. Say thank you, and tell them you support HB 42. Please take a moment to tell them your story. Tell them if you have been discriminated against. Tell them how much you want to protect your children from discrimination. Tell them that all people should be treated equal under the law.
Let's fill their inboxes with support for this important legislation! They support us, and now we need let them know how much it means to us.
