Anchorage voters have rejected anti-trans bathroom and anti-LGBT discrimination bill

Written by 

NO on PROP 1

 

Thank you to the voters in Anchorage, Alaska, who rejected the bill that denied bathroom access to transgender people and allowed discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Nonprofit Christian policy group Alaska Family Action launched an initiative called Proposition 1. They collected thousands of signatures to qualified it for the ballot.

Prop 1 asked Anchorage’s voters to repeal the 2015 ordinance that prevents discrimination based on sexual orientation.

A clause would also have prevented trans people from using bathrooms and locker rooms corresponding to their gender identities.

The "No Men in Women’s Bathrooms" campaign to promote "Prop 1" will have been useless. People decided to vote NO on Prop 1 with 53% against 47% with +78,000 votes counted.

Alaska becomes the first state in the United States to reject an anti-trans bathroom bill in a ballot. This year, 16 states have considered introducing similar legislation, but none has been adopted.
