About Fairbanks Queer Collective

Fairbanks Queer Collective was founded in 2022 by a group of like-minded 2SLGBTQIA+ folx with the dream of bringing our community together. 


FQC works with a wide array of organizations and community members to help build more queer-inclusive spaces and opportunities across Interior Alaska. We are currently working together with our community partners to open Fairbanks first 2SLGBTQIA+ community resource center!


Unlike many other cities, Fairbanks lacks "queer infrastructure" and doesn't have an LGBTQIA2S+ community resource center or a space dedicated to LGBTQIA2S+ support. We hope that with your support, we can make this dream a reality!

We intentionally operate on the principles of community care, open communication, transparency, respect and empowerment. We are a non-hierarchical group of local queers who have equal value and voice. 

Our co-founders help to guide our effort while also giving space to our community members to lead their own projects and events with our support.

FQC is open to anyone who would like to be involved in various capacities. Join our facebook volunteer group here to get involved!
