Big Gay Memorial Day Picnic

The 2009 Memorial Day Community Picnic will be at Kincaid Park in front of the chalet, from noon-5 p.m. on Monday May 25.

The Memorial Day Gay Picnic is an Anchorage tradition going back more than 40 years, held in Eklutna until 2007. The Picnic is sponsored by the Imperial Court (ICOAA) and the College of Emperors and Empresses sells burgers, hot dogs, chips, and drinks as a fundraiser. All LGBT people and our allies are welcome to attend. 

"It has always been at Eklutna, the least visible place, because back in the day folks wanted to not be seen. Eklutna has been sold, so we cannot use that space in the future," explained Scott Turner about last year's change of location to the more public space at Kincaid.

"We do fun things, the high heel race and egg toss, as well as volleyball if there is a net at Kincaid."

RSVP on the Anchorage LGBT Meetup group, or just show up on May 25.
