The Anchorage Police Department published a controversial Facebook post earlier this month, lavishing praise on all things LGBTQIA+.

The post from Alaska’s largest police department has generated more than 200 comments, many expressing disappointment that the law enforcement agency is using its official social media channels to promote LGBTQ sexuality.

“As we join the LGBTQIA+ community in celebration this month, it is essential that we put emphasis on Love, Inclusivity & Beauty for all!,” the June 1 post gushes. “Not just this month but every day.”

The post goes on to urge residents to, “Find different ways to support, connect, learn, and celebrate with the LGBTQIA+ community locally.” It ends by directing readers to a LGBTQ website – – which lists myriad “Pride Month” activities, such as a “queer” camp, pride parade, and a so-called LGBTQIA2+ “family friendly event for ALL ages.”

The LGBTQ website also includes links to a whole host of “gender affirming” resources, including a local medical clinic that dispenses cross-sex hormones and puberty blockers for minors.

Aside from Anchorage, no other state, borough or city law enforcement agencies in Alaska appears to have used their official Facebook pages to promote LGBTQ Pride Month.

    Stick to law inforcement, Anchorage. You have no business becoming involved in politics of whatever gender. Just do the job you were hired for!

    • Anna Marie Oudal says:

      Amen to that statement!

    • Pat says:

      Agree with you Mary .. this is going to far as far as I’m concerned… the police – fire department of any other government agency should not be a part of any of this .. do you what you want on your own time not on taxpayers time that’s not what you were hired for

  • Elizabeth Henry says:

    Disgusting virtue signaling thar indicate lack of backbone and courage. Pretty chilling that those tasked with protecting the city are represented by such mediocre and lowly mentality that cannot simply focus on what is really important – public safety and upholding the law.

  • Elizabeth Henry says:

    Good grief – I corrected my typos and they still posted as incorrect! ‘thar’ was corrected to ‘that’ and indicate was changes to indicates! What the heck? Probably can’t correct again now…..?!

  • Catholics love kids says:

    Joel Davidson triggered over Facebook post, this and more hardline “news” brought you by the alaskawatchman.

    • micah6v8 says:

      A more fitting handle for you >

      Public school teachers love talking to kids about their sexuality in order to groom them.

  • Michael Lindbeck says:

    Another lawless, progressive, organization only protecting criminals. Demokrats & leftists are why crime is up: no prosecution, no record, no consequences. APD & prosecutors put criminals’ & deviants’ interests in front of victim’s. Our assembly’s agenda includes defunding the police, “reallocating” their “resources.” We’re on our way to a point where join other demokrat cities which decline to prosecute the following: trespass; shoplifting; larceny; disorderly conduct; disturbing the peace; receiving stolen property; driving with suspended license for DUI, accidents, & moving violations; breaking & entering into vacant OR occupied property to sleep or for weather; wanton & malicious property destruction; threats; minor possession of alcohol or marijuana; possession with intent to distribute marijuana; ALL drug possession (including fentanyl); & resisting arrest.

    • Lucinda says:

      I dunno Lindbeck if this statement is correct: “ Demokrats & leftists are why crime is up: no prosecution, no record, no consequences.” Facts are that REPUBLICANS are the devious culprits in America. And your man Trump is about to show that crime is up, but there WILL be both prosecution AND consequences. Trump, like Santos and Clarence Thomas, are vile treasonous thieves.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Lucinda, please provide your sources that Republicans are the devious culprits. There are no reputable sources because you are lying and anyone who says this is lying. It is a projection tactic that the demons use to pin the guilt on Conservatives, Christians, and humanity-loving people when, in fact, it is the demons doing this.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Greg Kelly talking about Trump and O’biden. But, would a lefty watch this? Probably not!

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Oh interesting! Yesterday on Twitter, Matt Gaetz posted, “Imagine being naive enough to believe that the Biden Bribe Evidence and Trump indictment happening the same day was a conincidence.” Yep, as usual, the left is telling everyone to look somewhere else!

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    Anchorage is a woke cesspool of a city. Now the cops are drinking the kool-Aid. Get out while you can.

    • jon says:

      lol, “woke” is so scary. Being woke means you care about ALL people, not just the ones that suit you.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    ‘These people have CROSSED THE LINE’

  • Andy says:

    Next will be rainbow police vehicles, their emergency sirens will bleat “somewhere over the rainbow”

  • Bob says:

    Next thing is they will only respond to the LBGTFYU community. Learn to take of yourself, cops ain’t coming.

  • jon says:

    Thank you, APD, for recognizing all people, not just the ones who please the radical right.

    • Lucinda says:


    • StopTheMadnesz says:

      I’m sorry APD, but promoting an agenda that aggressively attacks the nuclear family, seeks to indoctrinate children into unhealthy lifestyles, and defends the physical mutilation of children doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence in your ability and willingness to serve and protect.

  • Mary says:

    Jon, it is one thing to protect all people no matter who they are, but an entirely different issue when tax payer dollars are used to support/promote one group over another. But government employees are free to promote whoever they want, on their own time.

  • Lucinda says:

    So Mary, if a government entity, no matter how small, promoted festivities on Veterans Day, you’d object?

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Veterans ensured our freedoms in this countries. Pride month is bringing our country down on its knees…OH! Right where your master wants us!

  • Steve says:

    I can smell Anchorage from here.

  • Anon says:

    We rank third in the country for violent crimes, and in the top 5 for child trafficking
    APD and our politicians are to blame
    Pisses me off that I paided APD over $6k from my property tax

  • ML, just common sense says:

    Never thought I’d see this BS in Alaska. We’ve always tried to separate ourselves from the lower 48 non-sense. The Anchorage PD, and now even our military have now become political. I have served in both vocations, and I can tell you, then the Military and Law Enforcement NEVER got involved in politics, it was flatly taboo, and not allowed. These entities have to be neutral in order to do their jobs, they have no opinions while on the job, or while serving their country. They enforce the law and take orders. It’s the sign of the times when these once respected organizations now indulge in the lunacy of politics and politicians. Corruption has no boundaries when it follows that path. No surprise that both law enforcement and the military are unable to recruit new employees. To do so means you would have to embrace wokeness, political correctness, degradation, and be despised. ridiculed, and unappreciated……. Yeah! where do I sign up!

    Providing human persons to populate and civilize the planet since the beginning of time.

    • Lucinda says:

      Certainly get the gold medal for over populating the earth!!
      There is not one significant social or environmental problem that couldn’t be eliminated or diminished by a reduction in population.
