A hard-left and well-organized LGBTQ activist group is preparing a legislative attack on conservative minded Alaska business owners who may oppose their radical sexual ideologies.
In recent years, Identity, Inc. gained notoriety for organizing Drag Queen Story Hour events for young children at the Loussac Library, recruiting young teens to perform as drag queens and promoting cross-sex hormones to Alaska children who identify as the opposite sex. The group is now looking to build a coalition of activists who will work toward imposing legal penalties on Alaska business owners who do not capitulate to its LGBTQ cultural demands.
A link on the group’s website, now urges Alaska’s small business owners to join ranks in pushing for laws that penalize companies and individuals who do not share their beliefs. The website is compiling a list of allies to enlist in the culture wars.
Most immediately, Identity is asking Alaskans to contact Senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan to urge them to support the federal Equality Act, a bill that has passed the House and is currently before the U.S. Senate.

If the Equality Act passes out of the Senate and President Biden signs it into law – as he has promised to do – it would mandate that Americans accommodate and facilitate behavior and events associated with the LGBTQ movement in private establishments, business, health care, entertainment and many other areas. Furthermore, the Equality Act would require businesses with more than 15 employees to affirm and officially recognize gender identities and sexual orientations, while banning opposite-sex locker rooms and restrooms.
“Being open to the public means being open to everyone,” Identity’s website asserts. “No one should have to worry about being turned away or denied service because of who they are.”
In particular, Identity is pushing for federal laws that force places of public accommodation such as hotels, businesses and restaurants to offer services and rental deals that support or promote LGBTQ ideals, regardless of whether it violates a business owner’s deeply held convictions.
