Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in the U.S. state of Alaska have been able to marry since U.S. district court declared Alaska’s denial of marriage rights to same-sex couples unconstitutional on October 12, 2014. They nevertheless continue to face some legal some challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents.

An executive order prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation in state employment since 2002. There is no provision for gender identity in any law. State law does not address hate crimes based on gender identity or sexual orientation.
