Established in 1993, The Last Frontier Men's
Club is a non-profit social club. As an organization,
The Last Frontier Men's Club provides bears, leathermen, cowboys,
(their respective admirers), and other masculine Alaskan gay
and bisexual men with the opportunity to meet and enjoy time
together in a variety of environments and social situations.
We strive to provide a safe atmosphere for singles and couples
to socialize regularly, where all members treat each other
with respect. Although The Last Frontier Men's Club is a members
only club, people from all aspects of the community are encouraged
and welcome to attend any function that the club presents.
We are not incorporated, a business, or an official
non-profit foundation. All proceeds from membership and fundraisers
go towards funding events for the club or donated to local
charities. Events include campouts, movie nights, dining out,
seasonal theme parties and fund raisers held throughout the
year. Food is provided at most club events at no charge to
Each year the club sponsors Mr. Bear Alaska
at the International Bear Rendezvous in San Francisco and
Mr. Alaska Leather at the International Mr. Leather contest
in Chicago. We have also awarded titles for Alaska Bear Cub, Mr.
Alaska Levi, Alaska Leather Boy & Ms. Alaska Leather.
Title holders are chosen yearly during our Arctic
Heat Weekend, generally in late February.
We work closely with other gay organizations,
not only in Alaska but throughout the country, promoting tourism,
showing unity and brotherhood and keeping our state known
for our great hospitality and friendship. The Last Frontier
Men's Club helps support groups such as the Alaskan AIDS Assistance
Association, S.T.A.R. (Standing Together Against Rape), Providence
Outreach, The Children's Burn Unit and other non-profit organizations.
Though our officers
run the meetings, all members are
encouraged to participate in the decision-making aspects of
The Last Frontier Men's Club. Likewise, all members are invited
to turn out for club events and fund-raisers.
