JUNEAU, Alaska — The Alaska State Personnel Board is considering including same-sex partners of state employees in the definition of "immediate family" for purposes of leave.

Starting January 2013 I have been the Juneau representative on a monthly LGBT Alaskan History project teleconference sponsored by Pride Foundation in Anchorage. As part of that group, I participated in a teleconference Saturday, April 6 2013. It was facilitated by Megan Friedel, the UAA Archives and Special Collections lead archivist. I was the only one to phone in from Juneau and everybody else was from Anchorage.
Megan strongly encourages LGBTQ Alaskans to start donating to a special LGBT Alaska History Archive collection. She has helped set up similar collections in other states.
As our community experiences the passing of our elders and some breathtaking changes, there is now a cross-country effort to preserve our state and national history.
