The new executive director of Identity, an influential LGBT group in Alaska, has a radical social agenda planned for the state.
“My job is to help create a world where all people are free to express and be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity and expression. How wonderful is that?” said Laura Carpenter in an Aug. 13 email to supporters.
I want that world for you, for me, for all of us,” she said. “For the teen who can’t come out safely, for the adult who needs access to hormones, for the mom who needs a shoulder to lean on after her parents reject their queer grandchild, for the boyfriend who survived an assault, for the performer who lost their audience and their lifeline, for elder who doesn’t know where to turn.”
Identity supports an effort to ban all forms of counseling for minors that do not endorse radical gender identity theories
In heading up the LGBT activist organization, Carpenter is at the helm of a group that organizes Drag Queen Story Hour events for children at Anchorage’s Loussac Library. Identity also promotes access to powerful puberty blocking hormones for teens with sexual identity confusion. The group has been invited to instruct public school teachers on how to use gender neutral language while accommodating LGBT ideology in the classroom.
The group’s latest project is to make sure the Anchorage Assembly passes an ordinance that would ban all counseling for minors who want help overcoming same-sex attraction or assistance with living in accord with their actual biological sex.
Identity supports this proposed law, which would effectively ban all forms of counseling for minors that do not endorse radical gender identity theories regarding human sexuality. The ordinance would fine therapists and counselors $500 a day for violating the law.

While LGBT activists regularly defend so-called gender fluidity and gender exploration when it comes to rejecting one’s biological sex or experimenting with alternative gender identities, they do not want minors to have access to counselors who would help them accept and live in harmony with their given biology.
Identity’s website urges activists to write Assembly members in support of the counseling ban.
Carpenter indicated that she is determined to enter the political fray to advance the LGBT agenda for Alaskans who identify as “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and gender expansive.”
“We have endured political and physical attacks,” she said. “We can overcome this pandemic. We can fight white supremacy and systemic racism in our community and out. We can create the world we want to live in.”
