New LGBT Caucus Named in honor of Dan Carter-Incontro

The LGBT Democratic Caucus has officially been named after the late Dan Carter-Incontro, Alaska's first openly gay delegate to the Democratic Convention, with the endorsement of Dan's husband, Al Carter-Incontro. Dan passed away on April 18.

The next meeting of the LGBT Dan Carter-Incontro Democratic Caucus is on Monday, June 7 from 6-8 p.m. at ADP Headquarters, 2602 Fairbanks Street in Anchorage.

They are currently working on a candidate questionnaire and a candidate forum, which is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday June 22 with the Democratic gubernatorial candidates. If you want to help with the forum and become involved in electing Democratic candidates who support LGBT issues, please attend the meeting.

Also, they are looking for Democrats to march in the PrideFest parade in downtown Anchorage on June 26. The party has applied for and been granted a slot in Alaska PrideFest "2010: A Pride Odyssey". If you can participate, please call Bert Mead, Interim Chairperson, at 694-7528. Staging for the parade begins at 10 am and the parade starts at 11 am.

The caucus wants to involve more people statewide and is setting up conference calling ability for statewide participation, but they don't have the arrangements completed for that yet. Stay tuned.

"Exciting things are happening in the Democratic Party and we want our caucus to be a part of the change we seek in our state legislature," said Mead.
