We Wanted to Make a Difference!
The Queen's Guard of Alaska was created in 2019. It was born of the need to protect, protect our friends, our families and our community. We saw the bigotry spewed through mega phones, hateful signs, and screams. We wanted to drown that out, let the community know we are here to be that barrier of love. We stand up between our community and the hate, with drums , songs, and signs of love.
We counteract negative and hostile protests with positive, peaceful, non-engaging support of LGBTQI+ youth, adults, and allies.
Our goal is to educate through positive and respectful means. We recognize that LGBTQI+ people are disproportionately at risk of abuse from society and within their own families, and face many other discriminatory obstructions due to their gender, sexuality, and so on. We know this needs to change, and we are here to show our LGBTQI+ communities that we hear them and we are here. The Queen's Guard is a community of gay, trans, pansexual, asexual, non-binary, ally, etc. people who aim to show you that you're not alone, and that you are loved and supported, through all stages of your journey.
