Majority of Anchorage Voters Back LGBT-Inclusive Non-Discrimination Ordinance

by Hayley Miller February 08, 2016

A new poll found that a majority of Anchorage voters support an LGBT inclusive non-discrimination ordinance that the Anchorage Assembly passed last year.

“Of 311 registered voters, 70 percent said they either strongly or mildly supported adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of protected classes for employment and housing in city law,” the Alaska Dispatch News reported.

In September, the Anchorage Assembly voted 9-2 in support the ordinance, which protects LGBT citizens in employment, housing and public accommodations.

While anti-equality advocates are working to get the ordinance on the ballot, 62 percent said they would not repeal the law.

In HRC’s 2015 Municipal Equality Index, which examines the laws, policies, and services of municipalities and rates them on the basis of their inclusivity of LGBT people who live and work there, Anchorage received an 81 out of 100.

HRC was on the ground in Anchorage last year working with local and state partners to pass the ordinance, and continues to partner with Fair Anchorage ( to defend the protections.
