Alaska Equality Works Introducing Anti-Gay Law

January 10, 2011

Anchorage Mayor

Is Dan Sullivan serious?  He’s really not convinced discrimination exists?  This is the land of Sarah Palin! What’s he want, a survey showing people admiting to discrimination?  It’s simply a cop out excuse to not represent all of his citizens.

Alaska’s Equality Works coalition will attempt to pass a gay and transgender rights ordinance through the Anchorage Municipal Assembly this year.

The proposed law would ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in housing, employment and public accommodations.

A version of the ordinance passed the Assembly 7-4 in 2009 but was vetoed by Mayor Dan Sullivan, who said he wasn’t convinced anti-gay discrimination exists.
