Hear from those fighting for LGBT equality in the 49th state. This community panel will explore the issue of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights as it relates to the Alaska and United States Constitutions, and will feature leaders who have advocated for equal rights in front of Alaska’s courts, the Anchorage Assembly and the University of Alaska Board of Regents.
The evening’s panel will include:
