This group is being offered to bring together any and all accomplished professionals in our LGBTQ+ community in Anchorage. Because we are educators, nurses, social workers, doctors, lawyers and more. We are here doing all kinds of incredible things every day. This group is based on the idea that we can do even more when we share our knowledge, experiences and support. You don’t have to live in Anchorage to join as long as you visit often enough to participate and keep up with RSVP’s. LGBTQ+ parents are welcome too, regardless of career status, because it’s the hardest job around and we are proud of our community’s families!
There are lots of possibilities on what exactly we will do, but no matter what, it will be a safe space where we can be ourselves and be appreciated! We might have a Saturday brunch, have coffee or find something interesting to learn about or create. A volunteer project would be really cool to show how impactful we can be as a community. Maybe a fundraiser to support an LGBT student project or a group appearance at a charity walk. The possibilities are endless, so we should start with a creative brainstorm session. It would be wonderful to have a co-facilitator (or three!) who’s willing to plan some fun activities with me.
There are a few things that this group is not: This is not a dating group and all members will be protected by having any unwanted attentions addressed accordingly, including possible dismissal of anyone who is not respectful of boundaries.
There is no age requirement, but please keep in mind the Meetup is geared towards professionals who would like the opportunity to network with one another.
While networking can mean putting the word out about your work, it doesn’t mean using our time together to sell products or services to other members. Thanks for understanding!
This group is not affiliated with any of the existing LGBTQ+ organizations in Anchorage or elsewhere, but we heart them!
This new group is basically a pilot to see if there is enough interest. Please show your support by joining today! As soon as we have a few members, I will schedule our first meetup. There are no dues at this point. In the future, my plan is for any contributions to go towards events, particularly any charitable activities that we do as a group.
