Transgender activist Aidan Key is the featured speaker for the Sept. 28 “Transgender Townhall” in Juneau.

The City and Borough of Juneau is finalizing its plan to host a first-ever “Transgender Town Hall” on Sept. 28.

The city’s Human Rights Commission is holding a Sept. 5 Zoom meeting to iron out the last details with the aim of identifying and rooting out aspects of the community that are deemed to be “sources of tension” when it comes to promoting transgenderism and the larger LGBTQ ideology.

The Transgender Townhall is part of the Human Rights Commission’s wider agenda of combating what it considers to be discrimination and hate.

At the Sept. 5 meeting the commission will decide on the venue for the publicly-funded Transgender Townhall – either University of Alaska Southeast or the Valley Library. Over the next few weeks, Juneau residents can expect to hear advertising and radio announcements featuring keynote speaker Aidan Key.

Key is a biological woman who has undergone surgical removal of her breasts and cross-sex hormones in order to appear as a bearded man. She will be charged with guiding Juneau in a discussion surrounding transgender issues.

Key has served hundreds of schools and districts – including the Juneau School District – by providing strategic planning, policy development, and training for staff, administrators, and parents. Her work includes developing policies and procedures that schools can implement to affirm gender-confused children in their belief that were born into the wrong body.

Key’s activism entails working with schools to develop policies which allow students to enter and use whichever bathrooms or locker rooms they feel best matches their preferred gender identity. Additionally, she has helped schools enact protocols to keep a student’s gender identity private. Key’s fixation on trans children includes writing books and holding conferences aimed at mainstreaming so-called “gender transitions.”

In addition to pushing a Transgender Townhall, the Human Rights Commission is also formalizing a recommendation that JuneauBottom of Form a proposal for the Assembly, asking it to create a policy that requires the city and borough to only contract with business that actively affirm and facilitate LGBTQ identities.

Additionally, the Human Rights Commission wants the borough to create a separate policy to encourage the recruitment of municipal workers who identify as LGBTQ. It is also asking the local government to develop legislation broadly outlawing so-called LGBTQ discrimination while empowering the commission to investigate alleged violators.

    Why can’t Juneau just have a town hall with Transportation participating? Why do they need to stoop to tge LGBTQ+ people? What do these people have on the community of Juneau? It make a normal person with a brain wander!

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Where’s the governor?

    Human Rights Commission’s wider agenda of combating what it considers to be discrimination and hate.
    God loves everyone, but a sin is a sin turn away from you wicked ways.
    Yes your wicked LGBTQ identities are Sick and Disguising.
    Again your a Women even if you cut off your own breast, your still a Women.
    What’s wrong with Juneau or anyone else listening to this evil lie.

  • Mary says:

    It is way past time to move Alaska’s capitol out of far left Juneau.

    • Neil says:

      Mary,let’s not vote on it again. Let’s just move it. We’ve voted twice or three times since I’ve been here and it has past each time. The problem is Juneau has the money from renting the state and elected officials buildings and rooms for so long that unless we the people can find some rich people to back us were doomed.It was on its way to Anchorage a few years ago but tge democrats stopped it with a renovation to Juneau hotels and building at some elaborate cost to us all but we didn’t vote or say it was ok. They just did it. That’s how money works. Notice we haven’t heard a word about pages being raped anymore since that story broke. I’m sure it’s still happening we just aren’t hearing about it. Oh what about tge secretary’s, same thing. Politician’s are smart, if tgey stay down in Juneau anyone’s wife/husband get on a plane the airport reports to Juneau and the off campus residents gets cleaned and the spouse never knows the different. It’s tgat 3-4 hour flight you know. Good luck ever getting the capital out of Juneau!

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        I have a very strong gut feeling that after this war is over, the capitol will be moved to mainland Alaska. I hope the history is well documented as to how having it in Juneau allowed for massive tyranny and a runaway Alaskan government.

  • Eleanor says:

    Oh wow, every time I see an article about Juneau I’m glad we got our family out of there, and sold our home so they can’t suck more money out of us for degenerate causes.

  • George says:

    The doctors that are slicing off people’s sex organs should be put in prison, and they will.

    • Clark says:

      You don’t seem to understand what being trans means OR the proper treatment of it. Breast reductions have been common all over the world. About 90,000 of them are done every year in the US alone. Trans surgeries make up less than 1% of those. Redirect your hate and bigotry to the ones who brainwashed you to hate.
