Fairbanks is about to endure a well-organized and heavily funded LGBTQ cultural tsunami during so-called “Pride Month.”

The annual display of sexual fluidity is being spearheaded by radical LGBTQ activists who aim to push their agenda on area businesses, schools, parks and youth spaces during the month of June.

Organized by the Fairbanks Queer Collective and underwritten by Planned Parenthood, ACLU, GCI, Boys & Girls Club, University of Alaska Fairbanks and a host of LGBTQ activist organization, 2023 Fairbanks Pride will include “gender euphoria” parties, drag queens, queer crafts, STD testing, LGBTQ walks, rainbow picnics, gay volleyball and a queer summer youth camp set for September.

While the Pride festivities are billed as welcoming and inclusive, one demographic is unwelcomed.

The emphasis is clearly on appealing to children and families, and all events are billed as “family-friendly and all ages.”

The Gender Euphoria Party, to be held on the UAF campus, is advertised as space to “explore gender expression and celebrate ourselves.” Children are encouraged to cross dress and explore queer fashion while also prancing down a catwalk.

“Dance around in our gender fabulous fashions and mingle with new fab friends,” a promotional for the gender-bender party states. Native Movement, UAF, Boys & Girls Club, Planned Parenthood and PFLAG are listed as sponsors.

Another event appeals to those who like coloring and crafts. Sponsored by Planned Parenthood, the Queer Craft Lunch invites all ages to “spread QUEER JOY.”

One day is scheduled for Pioneer Park Playground, while another features a Rainbow Picnic – offering free sexually transmitted disease testing, an open mic, music, games and complementary kayak rentals.

While the Pride festivities are billed as welcoming and inclusive, one demographic is unwelcomed – those who ascribe to religious beliefs that are not on board with the radical LGBTQ cultural and political agenda.

In a Facebook post about 2023 Pride the Fairbanks Queer Collective accused traditional religious groups of spreading a “hateful agenda.” It then urges people to abandon these churches in favor of congregations that embrace the LGBTQ agenda.

“You can always join congregations that are loving and accepting of all,” the post states. “Surrounding yourself with loving people is good for your spirituality and overall health. Just saying.”

    Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
    Romans 1:24‭-‬25

  • Lucinda says:

    Are any of you going to partake of the festivities? No? Then shut the hell up about it and let Alaskans enjoy the freedom and liberty y’all profess to support.

    • Tamra Nygaard says:

      Ah, Lucy, always the voice of unreason. You are free to indulge your fantasies of getting some guy’s parts stuck in your every orifice if that is your freak flag to fly. Just quit doing it in front of kids. It’s not the acts themselves, but the exhibitionism coupled with the perversity that makes this behavior reprehensible. Nobody is telling you to quit abusing your friends and relatives in pursuit of a one-way ticket to hell; that’s your choice and none of my business. But quit flashing all those naughty bits in the faces of those of us who prefer heaven. It isn’t your right to abuse us without consent. N’est pa?

      • Clark says:

        Tamra, do you think there are clothes in Heaven? Pride isn’t about lust. There are plenty of other events during the year for that, that aren’t for kids. Pride is a celebration of diversity. And a statement of survival. A symbol that we survived awful people like you. We have parades because we CAN. And to let all the lgbt youth that are growing up with families like yours know that the rest of the country isnt like their abusive families.

        Also…why are you obsessed with gay people’s orifices? Are you strugglin with some fantasies you don’t like? You should go to Pride. You can find people to help you explore those desires of yours.

        There is not a single sexual act that gay people do that straight people don’t also do in far greater numbers. 40-50% of heterosexuals engage in anal sex at least occasionally. Over 50% of males experiment sexually with other males at least once. except they are usually ashamed they enjoyed it and won’t admit it. Women supposedly have more sexual fluidity then men do. But there hasn’t been a lot of study on that specific subject. A quarter of all children(25%!) start having penetrative sex by age 13. Its over 50% by 16, and over 80% by 18. Not talking about abuse/pedos, thats just the statistic for regular youths having sex with other age-appropriate youths. If you love your kids you should really help educate them with books like Lets Talk About It. So they will know how to stay safe and protect themselves.

        You might be a smart person under all that hate, but your comments are kinda dumb.

      • Lucinda says:

        Mr Tamra – you think too much about sex.

    • Proud Alaskan says:

      Your freedoms are back in San Fransicko go back to where you came from.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    People, be careful in your actions during this “pride”month. O’biden is really pushing to get civil unrest going. The last thing that peaceful, law-abiding people want to do is get any type of unrest started. Watch out for false flags and stay away from these events if possible. Don’t be stirring anything up!

    • Proud Alaskan says:

      But we don’t want to just sit back and let these freak shows run our lives, we need to stand up to this bs

  • CD says:

    Does anybody know where to get pamphlets to hand out the truth to these people? Years ago there were a few organizations that would send out pamphlets of testimonials of people who converted out of the homosexual lifestyle that way you could share them with friends and family. I’ve been out of touch with some or either they don’t exist anymore.

  • Eva says:

    Matthew 18: 6
    If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
    I know that a lot of people believe actions done with your body are harmless, but think again, everyone who does these unnatural behaviors, will sooner or later learn that they believed a lie. Depression will set in, because your soul will be very sad and unfulfilled. This is not said in hate, this is said, to help you wake up! Clean your minds and hearts 🙂 Christ is always waiting with open arms to forgive anyone, who wants to come to Him and repent. ( meaning turn away from unnatural behavior), before it is too late. He can help you discover the beauty He created for you to enjoy 🙂

    This is nothing unique to Fairbanks, is it? Every June is Pride Month to the LGBTQ community. It’s happening in pretty much every city around the world. And cities like it because it brings in a huge amount of business revenue. It’s a fun, festive time. Of course, no one is forcing you to participate.

    • Tamra Nygaard says:

      Pride, greed, wrath, envy, lust, gluttony and sloth, all seven, coming at us from all directions. That pretty well sums up “Pride Month,” which is not about pride at all, but about forcing the rest of us to praise perversion. Please don’t be so naïve. Some of us would like our immortal souls to end up in heaven.

    • micah6v8 says:

      Like the young ones I see. We see you.

  • AKFish says:

    Just the kids that being exposed to these LGBTQ alternative lifestyles/Gender dysphoria over and over again and again. With enough exposure, they hope to make LGBTQ/Gender dysphoria mainstream and acceptable so you won’t think anything of it. The less than 10% want the 90% majority to accept their LGBTQ alternative lifestyle/Gender dysphoria as a fun/festive time, “normal”, family-friendly, acceptable for kids of all ages.

  • Jen says:

    Lucinda’s is only here because her hate to other readers is not tolerated by suzanne at mrak who blocked her for hateful trolling adding nothing useful.

    • micah6v8 says:

      True. They deserve to be mocked, ridiculed, and shunned. Imagine how black their soul is? A Lake of Fire for eternity for “Lucinda’s”.

      • Lucinda says:

        A Lake of Fire for eternity for “Lucinda’s”. Would your loving god do that to me?

    • Lucinda says:

      Downing did block me, true. But it wasn’t cuz of hate. In fact, Downing she blocked me cuz I commented that that one of the commenters gave a knee jerk conservative reaction to something. Is that hate? You could call me a troll, that’s partly true, but more, I want to shed a wee bit of light under the hem of your intolerance, anti-intellectualism and hypocrisy.

      • Tamra Nygaard says:

        Lucy, dear, God does not send anyone to hell. You do that all on your own. If you feel the need to mock Christians, maybe you should actually learn what it is you mock, instead of posting all these silly strawman comments. But that would require intellectual honesty, something you apparently lack.

  • David Halbrook says:

    Thank you for sharing this information. It is good to know these efforts are being organized.
    Part of how we resist is to tell the truth with wisdom…wise as serpents, harmless as doves.
    Also, we can organize efforts to speak the truth. The Chena Small Tracts church of Christ is offering to be a voice of truth and reason on this and related topics (abortion, homosexuality, transgenderism, pornography) May 31-June 4. If you want more information visit or find us on Facebook. (if announcements like this are not allowed in the comments section and this needs to be removed, I understand)

  • Ruth Ewig says:

    Gender dysphoria is a curable mental illness. The government used to pay for conversion counseling. These mentally ill people, as in ancient history, get in our faces until we are all converted or wind up appeasing just to get along. Yes, in Fairbanks a few years ago we had a person on City Council that was excited about planning a Pride Parade. I did not go but read about in the local newspaper. There was alot of nakedness and perversion in the parade. City council woman came from New York and quietly ran for office without being vetted. The UAF up here is a breeding ground for anti-god activities of all types. One student told me that It’s a shame that they are funded by taxpayers to pervert the culture. The superintendent before the current one was Karen Gaborik and she hired many woke people who have chosen our government school curriculum. A sodomite female minister from the Universalist-Unitarian church located in the woods next to the Princess Hotel would visit and counsel students at Lathrop High School. What a mess. The curriculum coordinators hired by Gaborik are still in place and using the homosexual curriculum The curriculum was brought into our district by school board member Timothy Doran who put in into our district as a test model. Doran was an administrator at the time and then became a school board member. Board Members Tim Doran, Erin Morotti and Chrya Sanderson are supporting this. Brany Harty is new so we do not know about her. We suspect she will follow the leftists. Conservatives are not in majority due to union dominance and Christian lack of knowledge or lack of participation or both. Christians do not know how to vote their worldview and instead vote for friends or those who would give them a raise (unions), or else they believe the commercials.

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    Yes that’s why he’s a Loving God, he gave you a choice to follow him to heaven or your choice to hell.
    If that’s your choice then yes your going to the lake of fire.

  • Eva says:

    Remember everyone, Light drives out Darkness, meaning only the Light of Christ and His Love will drive out Evil. Pray, Pray and Pray…
    build a relationship with individuals ( who do not know the Light), and then you can show them the Love of God, and maybe some will love the Light more than the Darkness. Just be careful not to get sucked into the darkness, stay strongly connected with Christ in your souls.

  • Joe Hartley says:

    In 1972 the American Psychiatric Association declared homosexuality not a mental disorder. Pandora’s box was opened. Fast forward to today.
    The Homosexual Industrial Complex is in control of the American agenda at every turn.
    I for one was once “ live and let live “ as long as it was in confines of one’s own house.
    Upon reflection of what I have seen in my life I no longer am of that opinion. The attack of everything that has been normal with an absolute requirement to accept a perverse lie is beyond what most can tolerate.
    Homosexuality movement when observed from a global perspective appears to be confined to Western Europe and North America. The rest of the World thinks we are Nuts. They are correct.
    Recently when speaking to youth 11-15 years old I was surprised at their complete rejection of the Homosexual message. The kids identified their homosexual teachers. Confirming that these teachers made it clear they were willing to seek out confused youth. All under the guise of “helping children”.
    Thank you Alaska Watchman for pointing out that GCI is a supporter of the Homosexual Industrial Complex.
    I will be changing my WIFI carrier next week.
    That’s what we all need to do, take action against those (i.e. Target,Budweiser,Northface, etc.) who choose to support the most perverse issue in American History. If we as Americans cannot absolutely say a women is a women and a man is a man, We as a Nation are lost.

  • Diana H. Graf says:

    Hope this convening of believers and speakers on those issues doesn’t end up more tolerant than it already is thereby prolonging the Evil.
    “Evil Preaches Tolerance Until It Is Dominant Then It Tries To Silence Good
    Expanding on this quote, the Archbishop said:
    We need to remember that tolerance is not a Christian virtue. Charity, justice, mercy, prudence, honesty — these are Christian virtues. And obviously, in a diverse community, tolerance is an important working principle. But it’s never an end itself. In fact, tolerating grave evil within a society is itself a form of serious evil. Likewise, democratic pluralism does not mean that Catholics should be quiet in public about serious moral issues because of some misguided sense of good manners. A healthy democracy requires vigorous moral debate to survive. Real pluralism demands that people of strong beliefs will advance their convictions in the public square — peacefully, legally, and respectfully, but energetically and without embarrassment. Anything less is bad citizenship and a form of theft from the public conversation.” Archbishop Charles Chaput

    Did y’all know that the Mormon church’s second prophet Brigham Young had a son (his 35th child) who performed in drag?

  • Sally Duncan says:

    The evil of the pride community is evident in their trolling of children who are the most vulnerable. Protect your children Fairbanks, North Pole and outlying areas with everything you have. The text books as regards “health” are available for review at the school district offices this week only from 10-4. Parents you need to take a look at what your children are being taught.

  • George says:

    Homosexuality is immoral and a sin. Any country that embraces it is asking for disaster, and quick.
