Gay and Lesbian Forum set for next Monday

There will be a Community Lesbian,  Gay,  Bi, and Transgender equality rally next week in effort to support house bill 139.

House Bill 139  would make discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression illegal in the state in the areas of employment credit and financing public accommodation and sale and rental of real property.

This bill would add to the current powers of the human rights commission which already prohibits discrimination based on race, sex, religion or national origin.

There will be a panel with guest speakers Chancellor Brian Rogers, Representative Beth Kertulla, Student Regent Courtney Enright, and Alaska ACLU Executive Director Josh Decker.
