Discrimination

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in Alaska suffer discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodation, education, medical care and otherwise in their everyday lives because of a lack of legal protection.

Nondiscrimination laws help ensure that LGBT people have equal access to the same opportunities, benefits and protections granted to everyone else, such as the ability to work in an environment where people are judged by their job performance, not their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Alaska Non-Discrimination Laws

Alaska is one of 29 states that have no laws that protect LGBT people from discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodation, medical care and otherwise.

What We Are Doing

We are continuing to work at the local and state lawmakers to address LGBT related discrimination in our communities.
