The Imperial Court of All Alaska, a José Honors Award Recipient, is in the process of planning our Coronation 45

"Flannel, Duct Tape and Tarp - A Cheechako's Guide to Alaska", August 31 - September 4, 2017 

 

Our intention is to give our guests a 45-year retrospective of LGBT History of Alaska, which will include a new Gay History bus tour, as well as mementos from our previous 44 Reigns. Our hope is that our guests will leave Alaska with an understanding of our remarkable movement in our isolated communities.

We have included a list of events for Coronation Ball Week, as well as Hotel and Transportation, with associated approximate costs, as found through travel sites online. Our host hotel, The Sheraton Anchorage Hotel, is offering us a great rate of $190 per night. We have also included surrounding properties and website links for comparison and consideration.

We are excited to have you be a part of our historical event, and want to ensure that your visit will be worth your journey here to Alaska. We hope that you will consider our Coronation week as a great time to travel, meet together, and learn more about our organization and realm - the largest in the International Court System!
