Where to Find GLBT Alaska - Business List

Visitors, new residents and long-time Alaskans want to know where to find GLBT-owned and GLBT-friendly businesses in Alaska, so we can support the community with our consumer dollars. Here is the current list.

Obviously, it is not a complete list, and now is a good time to update it. If you are a GLBT Alaskan, or an ally of our community, and want to include your business on Bent Alaska's free list, please leave your information in a comment below the list. If you know a gay-owned or gay-supportive business that you think should be here, please ask the owner to visit Bent and leave a comment.

Disclaimer: This list is not an endorsement or recommendation for the businesses, only a recognition that they are owned by GLBT Alaskans and our Allies.

Bent Alaska's resource list for Alaska's GLBT organizations, groups and publications remains one of the most often visited pages on the blog. There is also a list of GLBT Alaska's Annual Events, and Seasonal and Recurring Events.

UPDATE: There are so many listings for Travel-related businesses, that I've added a separate post and linked it in the right hand column of the blog! Where to Find GLBT Alaska - Travel & Tourism

You should add the Silverbow Bakery/Inn and SEAGLA to your Juneau list, they are LGBT friendly as well.

Thanks, 'shroom. I'll contact the Silverbow and see if they're interested.

SEAGLA is on the Organizations list

Anyone know of a LGBT friendly place to stay in Nome and Thorne Bay (on Prince of Wales Island?)If you do, can you email me at jsimm99@hotmail.com? Thanks! Jennifer

E. Ross said...

Note: I forwarded JenAK's question to a lesbian who used to live in Nome. She answered Jen privately, but didn't have any suggestions for LGBT-friendly places to stay.

As for Prince of Wales Island, JenAK decided that her best solution is to rent a van and sleep in it.

Have a great trip, Jen!
