Growing Mat-Su Center seeks funding
The Mat-Su LGBT Community Center opened its doors on Monday. "I'm very encouraged by the size of our coffee meetings," writes Brianne. "At this time we could really use a contribution towards setting up Internet and phone access in our office. Also we very much need bookshelves." The Center is open Monday-Friday 5-8 p.m. and the coffee social is on Wednesdays, 5 p.m. at Vagabond Blues in Palmer.

Conservatives notice Alaskans Together
Alaskans Together was mentioned by The Catholic Anchor and the Alaska Standard in an article opposed to the Fairbanks school board's decision to add gender identity to the non-discrimination policies: "The policy change was a welcome move by an increasingly well-organized group of gay rights advocates in Alaska. The Web site for the activist group Alaskans Together expressed hope that the new policy would set an example for future action by other schools and governments across Alaska."

Men of Anchorage on Meetup
Men of Alaska is a group for gay men in Anchorage, Alaska and surrounding areas who meet for social events and community service projects. Gay men visiting from outside of Alaska are also welcome to join to find events that are happening during their visit.
