Alaska’s gay and transgender population can be found across Alaska and our membership includes not only lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals and families but also straight allies across the state. 

Thank you for visiting and we hope that you consider becoming a member and helping us make progress towards civil equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Alaskans.

VIDEO SPOTLIGHT: National TV Ad Depicting Transgender Discrimination

Equality Federation is proud to partner in the launch of a groundbreaking ad depicting the challenges faced by transgender people in accessing public restrooms—and highlighting the lack of state and federal nondiscrimination protections for transgender people—that will have its national television debuted on FOX News Channel on July 21, 2016, during the final night of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. The ad also aired nationwide on MSNBC during the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.


Our sister organization Identity’s TransformAK video project aims to transform the public’s views of transgender Alaskans by telling stories about our common humanity, values, and life experiences.
