Welcome (at St. Mary's Episcopal Church)
About 40 people turned out for a presentation about discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) Alaskans during the Adult Education Hour on Sunday, 19 Feb 2012 at St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Anchorage. Rev. Drew Phoenix, one of the clergy leaders of Christians for Equality, discussed how discrimination impacts the lives of all citizens and answered questions. On the following Sunday, 26 Feb 2012, Trevor Storrs of One Anchorage will lead the Adult Education Hour discussion on Proposition 5, the Anchorage Equal Rights Initiative, which is on the April 3, 2012 muncipal election ballot for the Municipality of Anchorage. If passed, Prop 5 will amend Anchorage’s equal rights code to provide the same legal protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or transgender identity that are already provided based on race, color, sex, religion, national origin, marital status, age, physical disability, and mental disability. All are welcome.
