Gay AK: Music, Dance, Free Food & Guest Bloggers

Gay AK is a semi-regular column with short news items and up-coming events for LGBT Alaska.

The good news: my right shoulder should be healed in a week or two. The bad news: I'm right handed. I can manage the FB page, but would really appreciate a few guest bloggers so the blog doesn't go silent. Any LGBT Alaskans with something to say? Here's your opportunity. Send a few paragraphs to Bent Alaska.

Arctic Siren's First Friday Cabaret at the Snow Goose is $15 a person to benefit the Four A's. Friday, Sept. 3 at 7:30 p.m. (Doors open at 6:45 p.m.)

Womyn's Dance, 10/9 at the Snow Goose. We're back with new music and a new sound system! Come alone, bring a friend, an ex, a blind date or a gaggle of lesbians, but come on out to the Snow Goose the Saturday night of the Pride Conference. Doors open at 7:30pm and we'll dance until around midnight.

Marcia Stuber has offered to throw an end-of-summer Women's Retreat weekend at her resort in Sterling. Her cabins sleep 2-4, and she slashed the rate to only $100 per night per cabin. Located about a 9-iron from the Kenai River, this promises to be a weekend full of fun, fishing, friendship, campfires, music, an all-around blast! Alaska Red Fish Lodge

The long awaited revealing of the Fairbanks HAUS oF FUSION: Join Beyonca Fusion on her ultimate coming out on the town party event with the revival of the long lost tradition of Follies of Dollies: the ReMix. Downtown at the 310 1st Ave Banquet Hall on Saturday, Sept 18. Doors open at 8, drag show at 9. This is partly a benefit to "honor & give love to our dear friend Richard Welch, a pioneering community member who has been instrumental in the "art of the night" for many years." $9 @ door, 21+ only.

NE2010 was "a RAGING success with over 100 attendees enjoying three full days of educational classes and workshops taught by 8 national presenters on the SM and Leather lifestyles. Attendees were spoiled with a bustling registration brunch, brown bag lunches sponsored by the ICOAA and an off the hook farewell Seven Course Sinners Dinner with 10 performers and awards." The Dirty Dick Award was given to it's 8th recipient: Sarha was proud to award it to the GLBT community of Alaska.

Every Sunday night, Kodiak Bar and Grill on 5th Street hosts a totally free BarBQ at 7 pm. Chicken, steaks, burgers, fish, (different meats, different weeks, it's just a surprise) but always very good. Baked potatoes with sour cream, butter, shredded cheese, chips and dip. Of course, you are free to purchase your beverage of choice. Music and dancing after the dinner.
